Whether you are a utility or an independent renewable energy producer, our operations and asset management team can work with you to develop a package of operational services to suit your needs. As one of the world’s leading independent providers of operational phase services, we ensure a consistency of approach without compromising on health and safety.
We advise on the services that will help you to achieve your goals, whether they are to reduce operational costs, improve reliability or to increase generation. Here are just some of the services we offer.
Natural Power’s team of servicing and repair technicians form an integral part of the opertions and asset management team and the front line of defence on behalf of many of our clients. By careful liaison with our team of analysts and engineers, they can schedule maintenance work to ensure minimal downtime and reduction of long term renewable energy operational costs.
Our team provides local site management backed up by ControlCentre services to provide around the clock monitoring of our clients’ assets. We can provide high-voltage (HV) management, grid code compliance and trading combined with renewable energy operations such as wind farm servicing, wind turbine resets, commercial and financial services.
The jewel in the operations crown is our ControlCentre which is located at Natural Power’s head office ‘The Green House’. Control room services are provided by the operational controllers, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days per year. They will centrally manage all site activity whilst securely storing all related documentation.
This is a growing area of the business in which we are able to optimise our client’s assets through real time independent SCADA monitoring, operational downtime analysis and reporting, combined with end of warranty and balance of plant inspections and audits. By analysing a range of data we can advise and implement measures that will provide performance and reliability optimisation. We can also support future planning by undertaking post-construction yield analysis (PCYA) and power output forecasting.
Our team provides environmental compliance support and advice to ensure your assets are compliant with planning conditions and commitments and current environmental legislation. Our experienced team of environmental consultants can undertake species, habitat and hydrological monitoring, management of habitat management plan implementation and environmental audits.
Natural Power has developed extensive knowledge and experience of inspecting a wide range of wind turbine types. We have conducted numerous inspections and condition assessment projects across the globe, from the manufacturing phase through to post warranty health assessments and wind turbine maintenance.
The Electrical Network is a critical element of any renewable energy project. It must be subject to a suitable programme of inspection and maintenance to ensure safe and reliable operation, compliance with the requirements of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations 2002, UK only. Our highly qualified team can ensure the highest standards of safety and compliance for your asset.
Natural Power provides a comprehensive wind farm reporting and analysis service for the maintenance of over 35 wind farms. This service takes advantage of a wide range of data sources that are available to us, including turbine SCADA, work control information and site status reporting. Reports are tailored to suit our clients’ needs and typically cover weekly, monthly and annual performance reports.
As the industry moves towards becoming subsidy–free, Natural Power has developed a unique approach to renewable energy operations and maintenance, with increased generation, safety and efficiency firmly at its core. Our asset management team brings together many of the services described above to optimise renewable energy operations, helping them to run smoothly, safely and effectively.
