All of our services are supported by our proprietary data collection, management and reporting system, giving us high quality detailed insights into asset performance, with complete control of the data collected and stored.
Our data analysis platform imports turbine SCADA data directly to analyse error and fault codes to identify operational trends over time and to assess the effectiveness of maintenance strategies.
We use the data collected by our system to track project performance, respond to unplanned events, inform operational management decisions and lead discussions with service contractors. The data forms the basis of the detailed performance reporting to our clients.
This in-depth independent data analysis allows us to engage proactively with service contractors to encourage best possible performance, rather than simply allowing a focus on meeting minimum warranted availability levels. Where financial investors have access to their own high-quality data sets and perform regular, independent availability analysis better performance outcomes are achieved and financial claims can be settled more quickly.
Diagnostic modules include core key performance indicators such as comparison of turbine and park performance to metered data and assessment of losses and events.
Monthly and cumulative periodic comparisons are shown to budget, underlying contractual standards and other pre-agreed benchmarks.
Our system allows us to conduct detailed analysis where an event has occurred or we suspect there are adverse trends emerging. The platform scrutinises claimed operator performance, monitors response to events, interrogates causes of lost production and is used to audit contractual compliance. SCADA data is monitored to track the operator’s wider approach to asset management by assessing general turbine “health” signals.
Error and fault codes are analysed to identify operational trends over time and assess the effectiveness of maintenance strategies. We access data directly from turbine SCADA systems for a fully independent check and drill down to a finer level of detail than normally provided in the operator’s own monthly reports. We are the eyes and ears for our clients and focus on identifying process improvements and minimising “value leakage”.
At the core of our system is the collection and assembly of high quality data on an ongoing basis. There are many reasons for an owner or investor client to collect and maintain the project data throughout the asset or investment life, including the updating of energy yield forecasts, investment valuations, refinancing and asset divestment or sale. The ability to access a complete and clean data set with accompanying operational analysis can be expected to enhance value for the client.
