Project Description

Even experienced engineering suppliers often need technical and commercial challenge in order to deliver timely, robust solutions. Having a lead with long-term experience of design and implementation of SCADA enabled us to provide just what was needed through factory acceptance tests then through to the end of site and remote commissioning.

Acting as Asset Manager for four onshore wind farms, we recognised the limitations in control and reporting of the wind farms, so made the case to the owners for a change.

We specified the requirements for a portfolio SCADA system to replace the legacy systems supplied by the wind turbine manufacturer in the late 1990’s. We then managed the tender process, identified a suitable supplier, and acted as project manager and owner’s engineer for the successful supply, installation and commissioning of the new SCADA system.

“Having received such good, independent support to date, we trusted the advice from BVG Associates to change systems. We now very much see the benefits in terms of information available to us and in the bottom line. A good change, smoothly delivered.”
