Services & Digital Solutions

Increase your asset reliability and availability with customized service agreements across the solar farm lifecycle

We meet the needs of your individual operational and maintenance models

Our full services offering ranges from training, maintenance, spare parts, obsolescence management, warranty extensions, response time guarantees, up to availability and production guarantees as risk sharing mechanisms. 

A digitally enabled solar farm

GE’s Predix* platform is one of the technologies enabling this data-driven efficiency. The open, cloud-based platform powers Industrial Internet applications and companies globally are using the platform to build custom applications which can, for example, store data securely, analyze and detect threats and enhance location data. 

GE’s Asset Performance Management (APM) is one of the applications that operates on the Predix platform. This is a suite of software and service solutions which uses data and analytics to reduce unplanned downtime, improve reliability, minimize the total cost of ownership and reduce operational risks through providing operators with the real-time operational data to enable better and faster decision-making.

Plant insights – See failures before they occur

For a solar farm, APM gives operators the ability to monitor remotely to help detect early failures of components such as inverters. The APM technology can be used to monitor equipment across multiple solar farms, and it can also be used with equipment made by any manufacturer, meaning no matter when the solar farm was built, or by whom, solar farm operators can still benefit from the real-time data insight it provides.

Anytime, anywhere, get an unified view of your assets’ current state, and health.

Dispatch optimization of resources and spare parts - Reduce your O&M cost

Power plants usually operate by calendar scheduled maintenance with predetermined maintenance activities, while often disregarding actual usage conditions. Obtaining insights into complex system degradation mechanisms is a challenge. Maintenance dispatch is mostly reactive, and is triggered either by planned calendar and usage based events or unplanned when alarms & breaks occur. 

We help operators with condition based maintenance insights to optimize inventory management with monitoring services and recommending the right spare parts or field service. Service Max, our optimized parts & labor service dispatch enables significant OPEX savings per year.

Predictive Analytics - Maximize your energy output 

Predictive analytics help you to  get better visibility from prognostics based plant insights and enable you move your operation & maintenance schemes from a reactive to a more proactive approach by reducing unplanned downtimes and minimizing scheduled maintenance times. The plant’s productive time i.e. energy yield can be increased enabling you to generate higher revenues.

Production guarantees – Capitalize on reliable energy output 

Increasing the energy output of a large solar PV farm by just 1 percent means a lot. Beyond providing highly efficient LV5 Series solar inverter solutions, we furthermore help you identify areas of downtime risk, quantify against financial impact, and provide recommended action to the Field Service Engineers with the most efficient knowledge management.
