SunSystem Technology and Heliolytics offer advanced aerial inspection technologies within integrated Operations and Maintenance services
SunSystem Technology, LLC (SST), a leader of commercial and utility-scale PV solar O&M services, today announced a collaboration with Heliolytics Inc., the leading global provider of solar PV aerial inspection services, to expand SST’s suite of technologically advanced customer services.
Heliolytics is the global leader in aerial infrared inspections and analytics for PV systems, having serviced 15 GW across more than 1,900 projects. Heliolytics’ advanced analytics utilize proprietary aircraft sensor systems and in-house artificial intelligence (AI) analysis software to detect performance faults and identify root causes. The offering leverages SST’s deep experience and expertise in solar power plant operations and maintenance, adding advanced aerial inspection technologies to SST’s suite of tools for optimizing financial performance of solar PV assets during their lifetime. Heliolytics’ inspection results are seamlessly integrated into SunSystem Technology’s O&M offering, creating a highly efficient process for leveraging aerial inspection results to improve asset performance and optimize financial returns.
“In keeping with our philosophy of excellence, we are working with Heliolytics to give our customers access to cutting edge aerial inspection technology and analytics,” says Nick Snow, SunSystem’s V.P. of Commercial O&M. “This is one of the many ways we leverage technology to provide our customers with faster response times and more efficient service. Remote surveying services enable us to efficiently detect and prioritize a comprehensive range of performance issues, whether at an individual site or a nationwide portfolio, providing our team with actionable data to reduce repair times, optimize asset performance and offer added value to our customers.”
Rob Andrews, Chief Executive Officer, Heliolytics, said: “We are proud to be working with SunSystem Technology to provide a fully integrated approach to DC health management to their customers nationwide. Together, combining our industry-leading technology and analytics with SunSystem Technology’s O&M and asset management expertise, we can offer PV owners a seamless end-to-end service experience from fault detection to remediation, to achieve performance improvements that maximize assets’ return on investment.”
Remote surveys enable service technicians to arrive on site with improved knowledge of the preexisting issues, allowing them to perform targeted troubleshooting rather than surveying an entire site. Seamless integration with SunSystem Technology’s comprehensive solar asset
management services decreases the time to remediation and customer reporting, translating inspection results into financial returns.
