Strata Solar deploying skytron’s PVGuard monitoring systems to 1.4GW of PV power plants

Skytron said an existing fleet of Strata Solar PV power plants with a capacity of 700MWp had already been outfitted with the software systems.

PV power plant developer Strata Solar is deploying skytron’s PVGuard monitoring and supervision software systems to 1.4GW of PV power plants built and in planning by mid-2016. 

Skytron said an existing fleet of Strata Solar PV power plants with a capacity of 700MWp had already been outfitted with the software systems, while almost 200 projects include retrofits as well as newly built plants, ranging from 1MWp to 80MWp, totalling more than 1.4GW would be included in the monitoring deployment programme. 

Strata Solar has also commissioned skytron to install the PVGuard supervision platform in new PV plants with a total capacity of 165MWp, according to the company. 

Markus Wilhelm, CEO of Strata Solar said: “skytron energy’s monitoring and supervision technology enables us to have the entire plant portfolio and all relevant plant data available at all times on a single software platform, increasing the efficiency of our plant supervision. Our initial goal was to optimize our existing plants, which we successfully managed with the support of skytron energy’s SCADA system. We will now continue to integrate the system into our rapidly expanding portfolio of new plants and offer it to our partners as part of our developing O&M service portfolio.”
