Along 2018 Green Eagle Solutions, an independent SCADA solutions provider for the renewable sector, has performed several projects for the solar market to improve efficiency and as consequence profitability of several solar assets.
Green Eagle has provided many different solutions and products such as setting up the 24/7 maintenance and support service of OEM SCADA, monitoring platform retrofit or Power Plant Controller (PPC) tool development as well as the integrating of solar assets into CompactSCADA® Energy Control Center platform.
Most of these facilities are more than eight years old, and its SCADA systems were obsolete with very few technical capabilities. The Spanish solar sector has been especially punished by retributive changes, so very efficient solutions designed have been required to justify the investment. In this way, the strong expertise of Green Eagle Solutions in the wind energy sector was required to adjust its CompactSCADA® technology to provide customized solutions for each client and to achieve prompt results.
«Since there is room for improvement in operations and maintenance of wind farms, we are convinced that through OEM SCADA retrofit the solar PV sector may turn more competitive,» says Alejandro Cabrera, CEO, and co-founder of Green Eagle Solutions. «The most important point is to understand the status of the solar sector, its current needs and how the implementation of new solutions must generate immediate profits.»
In the present year, Green Eagle Solutions has already signed several agreements to implement CompactSCADA® technology working as the asset SCADA, monitoring and control tool. Some of these projects are part of the total portfolio of capacity allocated in the last Spanish renewable auctions.
Likewise, under the umbrella of the company’s internationalization strategy, it is planned to grow the market in different European and Latin American countries by postulating CompactSCADA® technology as a competitive and innovative solution in the field of monitoring and control of new solar plants.
