High-tech “Made in Berlin” chosen to monitor UK solar farm

solar farmBerlin, Germany, skytron® energy has successfully commissioned its monitoring, control and supervision system installed in one of UK’s largest ground-mounted photovoltaic power plants, the Kencot Hill Solar Farm. The monitoring technology of the Berlin-based company ensures trouble-free operation and enhanced performance of the solar power plant in Oxfordshire. With a total capacity of 37 MWp and an annual power generation of 36 Mio. kWh, the Kencot Hill Solar Farm will provide clean energy for more than 10.000 UK households.
Conergy UK Ltd was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the plant and is responsible for its ongoing operation and maintenance (O&M). For this Conergy relies on the complete and proven monitoring, control and supervision system of skytron energy. With its modular design, including intelligent combiner boxes for DC distribution, weather condition monitoring and a special on-site server, the system is able to monitor and record all performance characteristics of the plant and store the data in local data loggers.
“Conergy will be handling the management of the Kencot plant as part of our international O&M business, and we were looking for a high-performance monitoring technology. We were attracted both by skytron energy’s precision string current measurement system, and the quality of their components which are built to last”, says Robert Goss, Managing Director of Conergy UK.
Kencot Hill Solar Farm was constructed on a former RAF airfield in only five months. Pre-commissioning and on-site commissioning of the complete monitoring system was carried out by skytron energy’s own commissioning engineers and successfully completed recently.
“At skytron energy we are committed to provide customers with best possible O&M solutions because we know plant owners value high-quality data”, says Stefan Degener, Managing Director of skytron energy. “We are constantly working on improving our technology, so our customers can be ahead of coming changes and developments. In this context, we recently launched a new tool that ensures optimized performance and enhanced market integration of solar plants specifically under the new Contracts-for-Difference (CfD) trading scheme in the UK.”
