SOLV, the leading independent solar O&M service provider in America and a division of EPC contractor Swinerton Renewable Energy, has begun deployment of QOS Energy Qantum software to monitor and support the operations and maintenance of more than 1 GW of solar PV plants in the United States. Qantum is an innovative cloud-based analytics platform that allows SOLV to harness the power of the data generated by the multiple PV installations they manage on behalf of leading renewable energy project owners.

“Our solution helps clients deliver best-in-class O&M services for solar PV plants of any size, from small rooftop installations to massive utility-scale projects, such as the 155 MWP Comanche project which generates an average of 5000 data points, including the Qantum-based calculation of 1800 formula-based KPIs. Thanks to Qantum’s unmatched intelligence capabilities, SOLV can visualise, understand, streamline and maximise global operational performance using a simple web browser,” explained Franck Le Breton, CEO at QOS Energy.

Qantum is a unique hardware-agnostic energy management SaaS platform that seamlessly gathers data from any wind or solar plant monitoring system, such as databases, SCADA or data acquisition systems, including data from trackers, hybrid plants or storage facilities. It collects and transforms the data into comprehensive, next-stage analytics, enabling SOLV to identify performance issues quickly and accurately.
