The tracker-agnostic SUNOPS software analyses most facets of PV plant performance and empowers operations and maintenance (O&M) teams, asset management leaders, and performance engineers with actionable insights to enhance energy generation across their solar deployments.

SUNOPS assesses factors like advanced tracking algorithms and appropriate tracker stowing for extreme weather events and uses this data to effectively determine the root cause of underperformance, offering quick and accurate solutions to improve plant efficiency. The software provides a range of key features designed to empower users in optimising solar plant performance, including:

Precision Assessments: SUNOPS provides a first-of-its-kind tracker health assessment down to a single table, innovating site performance evaluation. Better tracker insights translate to improved plant performance and energy production.

Actionable Insights: Going beyond conventional methods, SUNOPS utilises advanced tracker analytics. Field teams gain real-time insights, enabling proactive issue resolution to reduce energy losses. SUNOPS's foresight in issue detection before dispatch improves uptime and leads to operational cost savings.

Easy to Navigate: Accessible via an intuitive and secure cloud-based interface, SUNOPS offers streamlined portfolio data access, eliminating hours spent working with systems of individual sites. It offers live site monitoring, historical performance tracking, and issue prioritisation, changing the landscape in solar asset management with actionable, data-driven decision-making.

“Tracker data is not always easy to get access to” said Imran Hassan, the Director of Technical Operations of ACT Power Services, one of the first beta users for the programme. “The cloud-based SUNOPS platform saves my team time by allowing us to access the information I need when I need it.”

Derived from FTC's global track record of successfully deploying over 4.5 GW of tracker projects, SUNOPS can empower solar plants worldwide to achieve optimal performance.

FTC Solar will debut SUNOPS at RE+ North America at the Venetian Conference & Expo Center in Las Vegas on September 11-14, 2023.
