SOLV is pleased to announce the completion of its new Operations and Control Center (OCC) in San Diego.
Construction on the 7,000 square foot facility began in December 2016 and has served as the home office for the SOLV team since May 1, 2017.
SOLV provides full-service operations and maintenance (O&M) and real-time performance monitoring for over 3,900MW of solar facilities in North America. The new OCC will allow the company to continue to expand its portfolio to include other renewable energy resources including wind, geothermal, and battery storage, which require 24/7 monitoring capabilities.
The SOLV OCC was designed for medium-impact facility compliance under the regulatory protocols created by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). Located adjacent to Swinerton's San Diego office, the renovated office space features three levels of secure access, a separate IT server adhering to Generator Operator (GOP) protocol, backup power, and various additional procedures and processes that meet NERC obligations to mitigate risks associated with increased generation consolidation.
"SOLV's 24/7 OCC will support the timely communication of alerts and follow-up between the on-site technician, client, utilities or ISO's and other reliability entities to monitor and optimize a site's availability to produce power and maximize revenues," said Reegan Moen, Business Development Manager for SOLV. "We are proud to offer added value of around-the-clock service to both current and future clients."
