The project fits the already existing hub established around the region stretching over the solar farms in Emerald, Rugby Run (Moranbah), Barcaldine and Longreach, all within a driving distance of four hours of each other. Due to these relatively short distances, ENcome - on the basis of its comprehensive technical knowledge and its corresponding high service level - is in an excellent situation to service the solar farms with rapid reaction times on site as well as high yield and availability numbers.
ENcome is delighted about the recent commencement of their services. “The challenge on this site is the ongoing commissioning, special grid connection agreements and very short time frame in which the start of services had to take place”, says Sigi Psutka, Managing Director of ENcome Australia, in charge of Technical Operations. The solar farm is connected to the Ergon Energy network and ENcome is responsible for the full range of O&M services including but not limited to drone thermography, vegetation management and the operation and maintenance of a 66/33kV substation.
ENcome is working intensively on its expansion in Australia with organisational structures in place to support this growth. The 365/24/7 control and monitoring services as well as dedicated O&M and Engineering teams in Australia allow for fast reaction times and continuously high service quality with a particular focus on utility scale PV plants.
The ENcome Group is a leading independent service provider for the technical operation of photovoltaic power plants and the offering of respective engineering and consulting services. In managing the power plants entrusted, the service of the ENcome Group focuses on maximising short-term availability, production performance as well as long-term value.
