Over the years we have built relationships and evaluated the competence of the leading designers in the industry, including foreign bureaux, always taking into account the latest trends, and following international standards.
And as part of the project management service, and we are able to give you the best technical proposal, even on a tighter budget.
Much of the success of the project is predetermined precisely by the optimal solutions for it!
In the design of photovoltaic systems in its main parts – electric and structural, it is necessary to follow the recommendations and conclusions of the Technical and Economic Analysis.
Without a well-established Technical Economic Analysis, the design process will be slow and with an obscure end.
Together with our designer partners, we can design your photovoltaic system, by all standards, and guarantee the success of your project.
The choice of components and electrical equipment, which many investors see as the only important stage, is also subject to certain rules and decisions, and depending on the specs of the particular project, one or other solutions may apply.
It is not uncommon for an investor to impose his will in one direction – for example, the use of Bifacial panels, as in the inapplicable and unnecessary such solution, he actually pays unnecessarily, most of the value of the Feasibility Study and Feasibility Study, which has previously assigned as unnecessary and expensive.
With the ambiguity about the other important points, especially for inverters, it is possible to make really big mistakes in the design of the photovoltaic system, which will affect the quality of the project in the long run.
Even the design of the photovoltaic system requires mandatory compliance with the conclusions and recommendations of the Solar Audit, and any decision that is not thoroughly examined and indisputably accepted, would lead not so much to risks from a design point of view, but to the deterioration of the impact of solar radiation on the system, and hence reduce its productivity (reduced profitability of the project).
Although there are already experienced designers in the young photovoltaic industry, we believe that it is a good practice to not take risks when It comes to inverters, and actually entrust the project to someone who can provide this experience and competence, and ensure that the project will use the most optimal solution.
Many investors are unaware that if the pre-investment and feasibility studies aim to clarify the appropriateness of the investment in a number of indicators and supported by the Solar Audit and The Technical and Economic Analysis, then it is in the project phase that deep details and specificities are entered, and from this detail and the experience of the designer, the profitability of the project can be about 10% better, in the form of performance savings, increased yield, smaller losses, etc.
In cases where photovoltaic systems are implemented for the business’s own consumption, a good design solution , based on detailed examination, and with the recommendations of a consultant with experience, can have an even greater economic effect.
When designing such photovoltaic systems, analyzing the consumption profile, and taking into account its peaks, weekends, possibilities for energy use, through redirection and other useful ways of storage and recovery, etc., it is not uncommon when it is precisely as a result of the detailed examination that the volume of installed power changes relative to the initial estimates.
Most traders and contractors only want to sell and install more power, and designers accept this desire as a design job without taking into account the effect of the energy generated when it is for their own needs and when it is for sale.
Even in cases where the investor has requested to make the most of the maximum capacity deployment, in the course of the project and precisely in the project phase, this indicator changes, and usually significantly decreases the original volumes requested.
Relatively few projects where capacity deployment capabilities are significantly less than the appropriate installed capacity.
There are two main approaches when performing the photovoltaic system design service:
- – as a separate design service
- – as part of engineering implementation/design, delivery, commissioning and delivery of the system /
We can perform the photovoltaic system design service as a separate one and by committing to the overall implementation of the project.
If it is applicable for smaller systems to implement the engineering approach, then in the case of photovoltaic parks ,it is definitely more common to implement the project first and then project management to make the tender for implementation.
In both cases, we recommend that the investor assign designing not directly to a designer, but to a company with experience and competence to guide the processes and help make the right design decisions according to the specifics of the project.
As with project management, according to good practice, when we accept only the photovoltaic system design service, we do not participate in the supply of components andequipment, and do not perform/install.
In general, the understanding in two main guidelines is needed:
- – even if the investor has pre-commissioned pre-investment studies and has received technical and economic analysis and Solar Audit, the design phase will clarify and decide the main and final productions of the project.
- – the investor is not correct to assign design either without providing project management with the necessary experience or without outsourcing an engineering approach
We believe that the design of a photovoltaic system, as in any other industry, is an extremely important stage for the realization of an investment project, and in the situation of dynamic development of the technology for a relatively short period, it is a challenge to find the best concrete solution on acase-by-case basis.
The design offices and engineers at our disposal are among the leading in the country.
Our partners from Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Poland also support us in this engineering, and almost every project is implemented in some cases in whole or in part, and at least consults with them, which is an additional guarantee of good and quality implementation.
