Keeping a windfarm in production whilst transitioning ownership is a complex process.
The project was highly complex as not only did multiple stakeholder’s need to be transferred but the interactions between the systems and production needed to be maintained. This involved a high level of technical understanding of complex control systems and the interaction with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO).
Main works included:
From commencement to completion the custody transfer took approximately 9 months and was seamlessly delivered in line with the commercial transition of the asset without any loss of production. The system audit ensured that the communications systems were fully documented aiding ongoing support. The AEMO semi-dispatch was successfully developed and implemented and has not only greatly reduced non-conformances but now been deployed on other client assets as well as on over 30 other renewable assets.
