Better Performance-Secure Returns

OUR STORY

Solar Operation & Maintenance

Operation & Maintenance (O&M) is one of the most critical factors that drive a power plant to realize projected revenues. Our goal is to optimize our customers' power plants to produce the maximum amount of energy, and therefore revenue under their power purchase agreement, throughout its operational life. We have made significant investments in O&M technologies in order to develop and create a scalable and sustainable O&M platform.
The importance of O&M is often overlooked by many developers. Considering the fact that the plant has to generate returns over a period of 25 years, a good O&M contractor, a good monitoring system and above all, a very good O&M process is very critical for the success of the plant.

Our Best Practices to achieve an effective O&M

  • Trained and efficient Manpower:It’s one of the important practice that we do on regular basis. We have shortlisted the skilled workers who are having prior experience of plumbing/painting/welding etc. which help us in various tasks of O&M work.

  • Performance Monitoring of solar plants:Apart from online monitoring provided by client end, we maintain our performance monitoring that provide more clarity of performance, breakdown, PR etc. Through this, we can analysis and compare various parameters.

  • Quality, Health, Safety and Environment (QHSE) Policy:We understand the significance of quality, Health, safety and Environment in O&M work. Therefore, we have developed our own QHSE Policy to meet the objectives.

  • Module cleaning as per Soiling accumulation:Module cleaning is one of the important part of O&M. We decide the frequency of module cleaning activity on the basis of soiling deposition analysis. It enhances the performance of the plant.

  • Regular Preventative maintenance.We implement Preventative maintenance (PM) activities to inspect to prevent the breakdowns and unplanned production losses. It provide Proper evaluation of the required original equipment manufacturer (OEM) inspections and maintenance activities and PM planned to maintain requirements as set forth in the warranty terms of the contract. A well-organized PM program can lower the probability of unplanned PV system downtime.

  • To minimize the outage Loss:Whether it’s a breakdown or shutdown, both the events are highly undesirable and lead to energy (KWH) loss. It is important to address the causes of these outages and to figure out the energy generation loss occurred due to the outages.

  • Ensure the sustainability of solar plants: To ensure the sustainability of the solar plants, we keep focus to optimize the performance and minimize the degradation. For major components, we do following practices on every major components like for modules we optimize the cleaning frequency that reduce unnecessary cleanings consequently increase the life of module in long term basis.
