A typical solar power plant contains thousands of connected devices from a variety of vendors dispersed across a large geographical area. From an operations and maintenance perspective, the amount of data available in a solar plant can be overwhelming and it is often challenging to ensure solar plants are operating efficiently and effectively. At Vertech, our team of professionals help EPCs, owners, and operators address these issues and more by providing world-class plant control, SCADA, and fleet management solutions.


Vertech’s plant-level SCADA system provides plant operators with real-time information for monitoring and controlling solar fields. It’s also customizable for each plant using standard templates and layouts, an approach that provides a tailored feel at a one-size-fits-all price.  With versatile connectivity to third-party software, Vertech’s solution also offers cloud, on premise and hybrid flexibility with information-rich dashboards and reports.

Power Plant Control (PPC) from Vertech optimizes solar plant output using a Schweitzer RTAC to monitors and control each inverter’s contribution to the plant output. This unique control scheme maximizes output in situations like partial cloud cover by reacting dynamically to provide consistent power output. With selectable modes, plant performance can be optimized for real and reactive power output, voltage and power factor.


For organizations operating multiple plants, Vertech's fleet management software provides performance and operations information at the fleet level. Built on the Ignition IIOT platform, the system features a scalable architecture capable of connecting an unlimited number of plant assets to a central location. Information-rich dashboards feature high-level overviews of fleet power output, performance, and outages with drill-down capability to individual plants and components all in real time. Understand at a glance whether your plant assets are meeting performance contract obligations, whether they are performing to design, and where to look when performance challenges arise.
