SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - November 30, 2016) - SOLV®, a division of Swinerton Renewable Energy, has been named the #1 Affiliated Service Provider (ASP) in the global operations & maintenance (O&M) market according to a new report by GTM Research and SoliChamba Consulting.
In their report, Global Megawatt-Scale PV O&M and Asset Management 2016-2021, GTM Research and SoliChamba analyzed 66 companies across 14 markets, segmenting O&M vendors into six categories: Independent Service Providers (ISPs); Affiliated Service Providers; Developers, EPCs, integrated firms; Financial investors, funds, yieldcos; IPPs and utilities; and Inverter OEMs. The report is further segmented geographically, classifying vendors as either local or global providers.
SOLV currently manages 3.25 GW of PV assets and is ranked #2 among O&M vendors globally in any category (outside of China) and #1 in the ASP category. In the report, SOLV is classified as a local provider that focuses on megawatt PV assets in the United States. In 2016, SOLV recorded the greatest total growth, adding 1.25 GW of PV assets to its total fleet. Only one company, which diversifies its portfolio across multiple continents, currently operates a larger total fleet than SOLV.
SOLV provides O&M services to both affiliated and third-party plants as a division of utility-scale solar EPC, Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE). SOLV was developed to provide a comprehensive solution to SRE's existing renewable energy clients, but quickly evolved into a nationally-recognized O&M provider for externally-built plants in addition to those constructed by SRE. Today SOLV's portfolio consists of over 50 percent of third-party PV assets.
"As an affiliated O&M service provider, SOLV is in the unique position to offer customers of third party-built PV sites the same level of service as our internal clients, accessing and utilizing data which provides efficiencies that drive down price and maximize revenue," said Reegan Moen, Business Development Manager for SOLV. "Our soon-to-be operating medium-impact, NERC-compliant NOC will offer 24/7 monitoring for wind and solar sites, ever expanding our capabilities."
According to the report, the global O&M market will reach 182 GW by the end of 2016, up from 133 GW in 2015. This growth represents a 54 percent increase in deployments over last year, driven by larger plant sizes in new construction markets like the U.S. Looking ahead, the report estimates that the global market for O&M services will reach 439 GW by the end of 2021.
SOLV brings unmatched value to our renewable energy clients. Our EPC experience taught us that a complete solution was needed. SOLV evolved into providing the best service for our customers. SOLV is backed by Swinerton Builders, a 125+ year-old construction company. The SOLV solution includes SMART monitoring, data analytics, asset management support, in-field technicians and SCADA platforms providing the best optimization and management solution.
Our national in-house SOLV Team configures a custom energy plan, analyzes vitals detecting the smallest concerns, and diagnoses plant issues in order to respond with SMARTer solutions. SOLV performance engineers and operations network staff continually monitor owners' facilities, all with pinpoint accuracy. Plant performance anomalies and system concerns are evaluated in minutes prior to service call deployment.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
