Kallista Energy chooses Greenbyte for wind farm monitoring
Published: 14 January 2020 - Carly Wills
Kallista Energy, an independent power producer (IPP) of renewable energy, has chosen Greenbyte’s data platform to upgrade and reinforce its wind farm monitoring capacity as it expects its 213MW wind energy portfolio in France to grow in the coming years.
The Greenbyte Energy Cloud will act as a comprehensive ‘datahub’ from which Kallista Energy can monitor asset performance, identify anomalies and tackle emerging issues.
With a large, established renewable energy asset base in long-term operation across France, developing advanced asset management approaches is essential for IPPs like Kallista Energy seeking to stay lean and efficient. While many still rely on bespoke in-house monitoring software, French owners and operators of wind and solar portfolios are increasingly turning to more versatile and future-proof platforms offered by independent providers such as Greenbyte.
By adopting Greenbyte Energy Cloud – a monitoring and asset management platform that continues to evolve over time – Kallista Energy wants to ensure that it is ready for continued development of its asset management capabilities. Greenbyte Energy Cloud will enable the IPP to more easily regulate operations and maintenance (O&M) schedules and support its commitment to high quality technical performance standards.
Kallista Energy will also benefit from a more comprehensive overview of data from across its portfolio. Drawing data from all on-site systems, the user-friendly dashboards within Greenbyte Energy Cloud enable swift identification of emerging issues before they have a long-term impact on asset and portfolio performance. In this way, Kallista Energy can enhance its risk management strategy and overall decision making, ensuring the company can continue to deliver electricity at a competitive price.
Guillaume Mazade, sales manager for France, Greenbyte, said: “With an established, maturing renewable energy asset base in France, IPPs can continue to add value to their portfolios by optimising their existing assets to ensure maximum availability and returns for investors. It’s important that these firms embrace software solutions that will give them the long-term flexibility to take advantage of the most advanced asset management approaches.”
Following the launch of Greenbyte Marketplace this month, Kallista Energy and other users of Greenbyte Energy Cloud will be able to further ‘future proof’ their portfolios with the ability to select from a range of highly specialised third-party software applications, designed specifically to enhance asset performance management.
