Maximising your investment

We will be your dedicated technical consultants.

With almost a decade of experience as consultants on international solar projects, we’ll apply industry best practices and standards to help you get the most out of your solar investment.

We have expertise in civil, structural and electrical engineering, so we can check and optimize your layout, design and check all of the calculations for you. Our team will work tirelessly to get you the best possible results from your solar project.We have expertise in civil, structural and electrical engineering, so we can check work tirelessly to get you the best possible results from your solar project.

Preliminary layout and site optimization

Our designers use our specialist software, 3D Solar Planner, to provide rendered layouts that are optimized to make the best possible use of the space available.

Getting the preliminary layout right is critical to the success of the overall project, so our professional diligence in this area will pay off.

We can also provide glint and glare studies to minimize impact on the local environment.

Review of the PV design proposed by EPC contractor

Our designers provide an independent critical eye to check the design.

We have designed dozens of solar projects which we can use for comparison and optimization.

Our wealth of experience in designing PV installations will help us to spot problems before they arise, giving you peace of mind that the project will run smoothly.

String design calculation review

Our engineers will check that the correct number of modules per series string has been calculated.

We use the latest string-sizing tools and double-check our results, to make sure that this crucial calculation is 100% accurate.

The last thing you want is to install a system that is under or over-loaded due to poor string design.

Inverter design calculation review

Our engineers will make sure that the inverter design is correct for the number of modules.

The inverter converts DC to AC electricity, and the input rating depends on the overall power of the PV modules. If the inverter input rating is too low, the system won’t function.

Therefore, we take great care to ensure that the correct inverter is used, taking into account precise power calculations from the PV modules.

DC / AC losses review

In every PV system there are transfer and conversion losses.

Transfer losses occur through the lengths of wire and cable.

When current passes through the inverter to convert DC to AC electricity, there will be a conversion loss.

Our engineers calculate these losses to check and review the efficiency of the system. This gives you a good indication as to whether you will get the desired energy output.

Wiring layouts review

Efficiency is the key when it comes to wiring layouts.

Our engineers will ensure that wiring is kept to an absolute minimum and the correct diameters are used, to prevent too much transfer loss.

Transformer station review

The transformer raises the voltage level to maximise the energy output. To connect a PV solar park to the grid, a step-up transformer is used.

Ensuring the correct transformer rating means that the energy generated by the PV system will be used to its maximum potential.

From a financial point of view, this can make the difference between a profitable solar park and an unprofitable one.

Our engineers are experts at checking that the most efficient transformer is used in the design.

Yield estimate calculation review

Yield estimate is a very important value when considering the financial feasibility of a project.

All the checks, re-calculations and tweaks carried out beforehand will be considered to come up with a figure that will be as precise as possible.

We’ll make sure that there won’t be any nasty surprises when the system goes live.

Long term yield assessments (P50/P90)

We’ll calculate whether the energy yield will exceed the calculated amount 50% or 90% of the time.

This will help to determine the level of risk that you won’t see the expected energy yield from a project. If the long-term yield falls short of your expectations, we can advise you on the next step, whether that is a re-design of the system or locating a different, more suitable site.
