EDF Renewable Services (EDF RS) introduced TRUalytics 2.0 along with the expanded customer account management team at the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Summit hosted by EDF RS last week in San Antonio, Texas. Industry leaders, project owners, and operators of renewable facilities gathered for insightful discussions regarding future trends and strategies to maximize energy production, increase profitability and optimize availability.
With 13.5 gigawatts of wind, solar, bioenergy and storage under contract globally, EDF EN Services is a leading provider of O&M services. Specifically in North America, the EDF RS team has 10 GW under contract employing over 500 people in 27 U.S. states, four Canadian provinces, and in both Mexico and Chile.
In the past 5 years, EDF RS has doubled its megawatts under contract. According to Tad Miller, Vice President of Operations for EDF RS, the sustained growth can be attributed to deep technical expertise with a variety of equipment types, coupled with a strong focus of safety. “Our customers expect a high level of quality in the O&M services we provide, and look for solutions with an emphasis on value-added services such as asset management and blade inspections and repairs. EDF RS continuously drives to exceed its customers’ expectations. 2017 will bring about additional solutions as our team focuses on innovation.”
During the summit, EDF RS conducted hands-on demonstrations of TRUalytics, the renewable asset intelligence platform developed in-house by asset managers, performance engineers and service providers to deliver unique insight into the performance metrics that are important to renewable industry executives. The TRUalytics platform delivers automated, actionable reports that make tracking renewable plant performance easier and more efficient. In addition to TRUalytics 1.0 for wind plants, which is now commercially available, attendees were shown an advanced preview of TRUalytics 2.0 for wind plants and TRUalytics for solar plants, which are both in development for release later this year.
