German photovoltaic measurement, monitoring and control solutions provider skytron energy has formally announced the installation of its PVGuard system at two photovoltaic projects in Japan.
According to a statement, skytron commissioned the installation at two, 2-megawatt plants in Hokuto City in February and May for Tokyo-based independent power producer Nippon Solar Services. The company is funded by Sonnedix Power Holdings.
PVGuard provides plant operators with a complete overview of their plant’s performance at all times. Its multi-site, multi-vendor SCADA platform allows remote supervision and management of the operations and maintenance of the plants.
That the product is available in Japanese language is another added advantage skytron offered.
The company statement said PVGuard can mitigate risks to power production from solar farms by visualizing and filtering relevant information, and identifying factors that create loss of yield.
It allows plant owners and investors to check the state of operation by means of the web portal PVGuard which gives quick access to detailed performance and yield characteristics of the plants located anywhere in the world.
skytron has stated that it is to present its PVGuard Supervision Platform and other solutions at the International Renewable Energy Exhibition in Tokyo from July 29-31.
The company has been developing integrated monitoring, control and supervision systems since 1977 and specializes in utility-scale and commercial power plants. It has installed its systems at more than 1,000 plants with a total capacity of 5.5 GWp.
