Corrective & Breakdown Maintenance
Corrective or reactive maintenance addresses equipment repair needs and breakdowns after their occurrence to mitigate unplanned downtime. Though a certain amount of reactive maintenance will likely be necessary over the course of a plant’s 25 year lifetime, it can be lessened through more proactive PM and condition-based maintenance (CBM) strategies.
We undertake Availability and Performance Ratio guarantees based on our experience and our quality of maintenance of the solar power plant. The guarantees make sure that our interests are completely aligned with our clients and that we have our skin in the game along with them.
Plant Health Check
Plant Health Diagnosis with Thermographic Camera & IV Curve Tester assists in checking for warranty claims against modules degradation. A thermographic inspection of the plant helps in detecting hot spots, detecting and predicting underperforming modules and searching for improper electrical connection and faulty diodes and fuses.
Monitoring, Forecasting & Reporting
Penta’ Experts and Analysts monitor the plants remotely for immediate detection of faults, prioritizing alarms and guiding site teams. Further, they crunch the weather, performance and faults data to bring out insights to increase your plant performance - from optimizing module cleaning frequency to forecasting generation.
Spares & Warranty Management
Different Equipment in a solar project have different warranty time periods. Modules are warrantied for 25 years, inverters for 5 years and most other equipment for 1 to 3 years. Further, sub components of different equipment have different lifetimes and need to be replaced. Penta Solarex from its experience of managing O&M, recommends spare management plan to ensure availability and quick replenishment of spares and effective warranty claim communication and coordination.
