Locus Energy, a solar monitoring and data analytics platform provider for the solar PV market, recently announced that Swinerton Renewable Energy, a turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and operations and management (O&M) provider for the utility-scale and distributed PV markets, will standardize its entire solar fleet on Locus Energy’s SolarNOC monitoring platform and PVIQ analytics suite as part of its SOLV enterprise solution for optimizing and managing plants.
Locus Energy’s SolarNOC platform will assist Swinerton’s SOLV solution to provide best-in-class monitoring, analytics and O&M services for both its utility-scale and commercial customers. Swinerton’s PV portfolio totals over 400 MW, with an additional 600 MW under construction. In 2013, Swinerton was ranked the nation’s top commercial solar contractor by Solar Power World.
“Swinerton Renewable Energy is known for its depth of understanding of the utility solar sector and its ability to respond to market demands by staying ahead of the curve in terms of technological innovation,” says Adrian P. De Luca, Locus Energy’s VP of sales and marketing. “In light of Swinerton’s position at the forefront of the industry, we consider it a testament to the value of our monitoring and data analytics products that they have been chosen by Swinerton as the standard for their entire fleet.”
By leveraging Locus Energy’s web-based SolarNOC software as part of the SOLV solution, Swinerton’s fleet operators will be able to more efficiently organize and assess performance data over a diverse set of solar PV assets spread across a wide geographical area, as well as streamline O&M workflows. In addition, Locus Energy has expanded its data acquisition and presentation capabilities, enabling Swinerton to integrate data from its industry-leading SCADA system.
Swinerton Renewable Energy will also integrate Locus Energy’s PVIQ analytics suite, a set of advanced data analytics services that allows PV system managers to analyze system and fleet level performance and quickly identify any causes of underperformance.
“Locus is uniquely positioned to provide the most advanced monitoring and analytics solutions across all segments of the PV market, at scale,” says Angelo Purpuras, manager of technical services at Swinerton. “The use of the SolarNOC to manage our fleet provides our technicians with unprecedented data visibility, and the PVIQ analytics will help us to continue providing premium O&M services to our customers.”
