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.
