ENcome takes over technical operation of 4 PV power plants in Italy within 24 hours


Klagenfurt am Wörthersee (18.11.2014): ENcome takes over technical O&M („Operations & Maintenance“) and monitoring of additional 4 PV installations in Italy. The take-over from the current O&M provider was successfully finished within 24 hours. This transaction once more underlines that a short-term take-over of O&M contracts is feasible supposing a foresighted project management. The contracting investor strives a consolidation of all O&M providers to reduce complexity and minimize operational expenditures (OpEx) of plant operation through economies of scale. In the selection process ENcome convinced with its high-quality constructor and manufacturer independent services as well as with its Europe-wide presence and attractive price-performance ratio.

„A clearly, between all parties, defined hand-over date with an immediate and full transfer of responsibilities to the new operator ensured a smooth take-over of the 4 installations”, explains Dr. Robin Hirschl, CEO of the ENcome group, the procedure and ambitious schedule. With the hand-over date also the plant security and data infrastructure were included in the responsibility area of ENcome. Within a few hours ENcome had to re-set all access codes and build up a new data infrastructure for all 4 plants.

The present transaction once more underlines the feasible short-term withdrawal from existing O&M contracts and proves that with a new O&M provider neither security nor data gaps throughout the hand-over phase have to be expected. Even more by changing the O&M provider technical and financial benefits can be realized such as specialized technicians, rapid response times and a wider scope of services. These benefits quickly over-compensate the manageable administrative effort of a service partner change. Especially for larger internationally operating investors a uniform visualization of the key performance indicators of the PV power plant together with an uninterrupted monitoring system becomes more and more important.
