Invensys Guarantees Efficiency and Improves 9REN’s Renewable Energy Generation

This video will help you get an understanding on how to improve renewable energy production levels of your plant while reducing on-site maintenance costs by minimizing manual supervision of operations.
Renewable energy. It's the mantra for today's society -- to identify and implement clean renewable energy sources to wean us off our dependence on fossil fuels. This is one of the fields where Spain and Italy are taking the initiative to a global level and 9REN Group is a clear example of a company leading the way.

To help operate its plants, 9REN created EOSystem, a solution built on the Invensys Wonderware Brand products. 9REN is one of the more dynamic companies in Europe -- their facilities, marketing strategy and personnel radiate the vitality and energy of a company that is on the move.

Because of  the System Platform, 9REN only requires one person to control the operation of all of the 580 plants, regardless of location.
Who should watch:
  • Manufacturing operations managers
  • Plant managers
  • Continuous improvement managers
  • Maintenance managers
  • Process engineers
Products
Goals:
  • Increase the production levels of the company’s renewable energy generation installations
  • Reduce on-site maintenance costs by minimizing manual supervision of operations

Results:
  • The Invensys solution has enabled 9REN Group to generate approximately 425 MWh a day at its power generation plants in Spain and Italy
  • Staffing has been reduced by 15% - from three to one - for control room operation, allowing the company to focus its personnel on other important tasks
  • Event recognition has increased by 50% and time to obtain performance monitoring reports has been reduced from one month to two days
  • Solar trackers production has improved by 5%
