«The Netherlands is one of our most important markets for new rooftop and ground-mounted installations alike», says Benjamin Gevelhoff, managing director of ENcome Engineering GmbH, the company emerging from former abakus solar AG in Gelsenkirchen in mid-2016. It is now the engineering & advisory services unit of ENcome Energy Performance Group, the European market leader for the independent technical operation and maintenance of photovoltaic solar parks. Gevelhoff adds: «We build on the long-standing expertise from development, construction and technical management of PV plants for our planning and advisory services. This also convinced banks, asset managers and plant owners in the Netherlands.»
Supervising and managing more than 1.2 GW of PV parks for many years by ENcome Energy Performance, allowed for the gathering of lot of know-how and experience, which PV plants to be built, their developers and future owners can benefit from. Considering maintenance aspects during the planning stage of a new PV plant, can make a significant difference in cost and return for investors. ENcome Energy Performance pursues this “design-to-operate” approach consistently and profitably, as shown by its latest successes.
ENcome Engineering’s engineering & advisory services include technical due diligence, owner’s/lender’s engineering, realization of repowering concepts, construction planning, yield assessment and assistance with technical acceptance.
The ENcome group is a pan-European leading and independent provider for the operation of photovoltaic power plants with focus on technical Operation and Maintenance (O&M), technical Asset Management (TAM), as well as Engineering & Advisory services. At present ENcome operates power plants with a nominal capacity of over one Gigawatt in all major European markets and Australia.
