AVEVA, a global leader in engineering and industrial software, has signed a technology partnership with India’s Helios IoT Systems, a specialized company with domain expertise in the renewable energy sector for operations and maintenance (O&M).
AVEVA Insight, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, will now include performance calculations specific to the solar energy industry as part of the collaboration. Helios IoT Systems’ patented digital twin technology-based solar analytics product, Apollo’s, rich content combined with AVEVA Insight’s scalable artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics will provide solar energy providers with deeper, tailored, and integrated information to help them optimize their operations.
As a result, companies using the combined solution can expect quick detection of solar farm inefficiencies through AI and physics-based predictions, faster troubleshooting and root cause analysis, more targeted maintenance, and an overall reduction in lost power.
This will be accomplished by the increased visibility of predictions, key performance indicators (KPIs), metrics, and performance of their assets. Customers will have access to a wide array of cloud solutions through AVEVA Connect, the company’s cloud platform, and can easily expand to meet their evolving needs.
“Industry-specific asset content combined with actionable analytics delivers closed-loop remediation that drives efficiency and safety. With our heritage of open access to information, strong visualization and comprehensive analytics combined with the Apollo domain expertise for solar assets we can provide critical operational intelligence to deliver value. With this partnership with Apollo, solar energy customers can accelerate their digital transformation, fast-track their sustainability ambitions and derive valuable performance improvements.”
Mr. Nitin Tappe, CEO of Helios said, “Our partnership with AVEVA is a major milestone in building a long-term relationship in delivering best of class solutions to the emerging market of renewable energy enterprises.”
