Augsburg, May 18, 2016. – The Middle East, northern Africa and Turkey (MENAT) are the focal point of the partnership between the photovoltaic service providers meteocontrol GmbH and Phoenix Solar AG. Phoenix Solar, an international photovoltaic company, will rely on meteocontrol’s monitoring systems to operate PV power plants in the MENAT region. The companies are launching the partnership with a joint project in central Anatolia.

meteocontrol has developed a cost-optimized monitoring concept for a complex of six PV power plants near the city of Kayseri in central Anatolia. The blue’Log Station X-Series will monitor and control the individual units of the entire power plant, which produces nominal power of 6.9 MWp. Phoenix Solar has been awarded a contract by a Turkish consortium to perform all planning and purchasing work in the group’s first plant-sized project. Another complex that generates power of 4.9 MWp is currently being constructed at the Kayseri site. „The partnership with Phoenix Solar enhances our growth strategy in the MENAT region,“ says Martin Schneider, Managing Director of meteocontrol, who adds: „For this reason, we are really looking forward to a long-term partnership. We“re also happy about already having two more orders in the project pipeline.“

Largest private PV power plant in Jordan
One particularly promising project is the largest private PV power plant in Jordan: The 11 MWp PV power plant will consist of three individual units. It is designed to meet all the electricity needs of the Marriott and Sheraton hotel chains in Jordan. It will also serve as a pilot project for similar power plants in Jordan and other MENAT countries. The systems are being installed in the Muwaqqar and Damikhi, Qatrana, regions and will be connected to the grids of Jordan Electric Power Co., plc., and Electric Distribution Company, plc. Under Jordan’s renewable energy law, which is considered one of the most progressive in the entire Middle East, the Power Wheeling Regulation permits solar energy to be generated at sites located away from the area of consumption. Once the plant is completed, Phoenix Solar will also manage operation of the three power plants. For this work, meteocontrol is supplying both the remote monitoring system for the VCOM virtual control room and a local SCADA system for on-site monitoring.

Augsburg, 04/06/2016 – Green City Energy AG, an alternative energy provider based in Munich, is determined to increase the efficiency and returns of the operation management in its system portfolio, which comprises about 40 MWp of installed PV power. To accomplish this goal, it asked meteocontrol GmbH to integrate all 25 solar parks into a single monitoring platform. In terms of hardware, a large share of the existing systems can be added to meteocontrol’s VCOM virtual control room without any additional work. Historical data can be imported without difficulties and used as a basis for evaluating long-term performance. With the help of the uniform monitoring solution, Green City Energy can effectively and cost-efficiently streamline its processes in operation management and asset management. Performance and returns will sustainably climb over the long term.

The migration is moving forward at full speed. Green City Energy, a subsidiary of the non-profit environmental organization Green City e.V., is now monitoring and managing most of its 25 existing systems in Germany and France on the „virtual control room“ monitoring platform. Within just a few weeks, meteocontrol will migrate the entire PV system portfolio to the uniform platform. This platform is flexibly designed, a feature that enables the measurement data produced by monitoring components made by various manufacturers to be integrated and processed for analysis and visualization. As a result, Green City Energy has to make only minor modifications to the hardware used in just a few PV systems. It can carry out the transfer to the virtual control room at minimal cost.

The cost savings produced by cross-system monitoring of the entire portfolio are significant. „Thanks to meteocontrol’s uniform platform, we spend less time each day managing our system portfolio,“ says Jens Mühlhaus, a member of Green City Energy’s board. „With the help of fast and simple error analysis, we can measurably boost our system performance.“ The company also plans to manage future solar projects on the meteocontrol platform.

VCOM: all projects under one roof
Investors and operators who, like Green City Energy, manage a large portfolio of systems frequently have to use an array of portal environments and software solutions as the number of their systems grows. Efficiency in operation management and asset management suffers as a result and hurt the system’s long-range performance. By using imports, meteocontrol cost-efficiently integrates the systems into a single platform. When necessary, the Augsburg PV service provider can develop upgrading and retrofitting solutions to create a comprehensive solution in terms of monitoring, grid feed-in management and direct marketing interfaces.

„The virtual control room is the right solution for system portfolios,“ says Martin Schneider, Managing Director of meteocontrol. „The reason for this is quite simple: Fast reaction times can be created only by bundling all projects on a high-performance platform. Managing the entire portfolio becomes a much easier and more effective proposition thanks to uniform reporting and controlling as well as time-saving analysis. In the end, we are talking about cold, hard cash that investors and operators are losing. Only optimal performance can assure long-term returns.“
