ABB’s solution is an Operation and Maintenance (O&M) service that combines an effective maintenance program with a system that manages all parameters related to production. The result is increased productivity, improved energy efficiency and reduced operation costs.
Many companies operating unmanned renewable generation plants of all types, including photovoltaic (PV), wind, small hydro, geothermal, etc are increasingly turning to remote services to significantly improve their productivity, handle maintenance and reduce costs.
At the heart of ABB’s new remote service tool is an advanced control infrastructure based on its SymphonyTM Plus control platform. The tool is designed to enhance O&M in unmanned generation plants of all types, optimizes performance, reduces costs, and improves plant uptime.
- Management of customers and plants from the same web portal, providing energy production reports, interventions, energy production forecasts, real time data production, lists of customers and plants
- Automatic production, intervention and operator action reports, including a log book that automatically generates and manages reports about different kinds of operations, or about corrective / preventive / extraordinary maintenance activities
- ABB’s O&M remote service tool is equipped with a refined analytical instrument that compares ideal and real production, enabling a continuous fine-tuning and improvement of maintenance procedures and actions
