Every significant investment has its share of risk. And solar energy, the leader among renewables, is no exception. A solar farm’s design, implementation and maintenance pose operational and financial challenges that start from the first phase and extend throughout its useful life. On the one hand, if a good project is not carried out before construction, the operation of the energy installation can be compromised. On the other hand, if assets are not protected against any eventuality, such as a thunderstorm, the cost of repairs can drive up costs and slow the return on investment.
The solar energy sector is a strategic industry that plays a crucial role in the energy transition. In order to protect the heavy economic investment that a photovoltaic park requires, both in the project phase and in operation, Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. has developed a portfolio of smart solutions that allow continuous monitoring of the state of an earthing system. The SMART EARTHING range is focused on achieving operational efficiency, reducing maintenance costs by anticipating critical repairs and extending the useful life of facilities to meet the return on investment on schedule.
SMART EARTHING MONITORING SYSTEM´s main feature is to monitor earth connections, providing valuable information not only on the status of the facility but also on the equipment connected to it. In the industrial sector, this facilitates operational and financial efficiency through preventive and corrective maintenance.
Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution in which we are immersed, involves incorporating smart technologies both in industrial products and services and production processes to achieve a new level of efficiency and responsiveness to customers that were not possible before. These are some of them and how they are applied in the products and services of Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A.
