We are delighted to announce the great achievement of deploying our IoT Based AI/ML Driven SCADA product (ETi-SOL) to Monitor, Control, Analyse and Forecast Energy Generated from Solar PV Plants and Rooftops for over 1GW (1000MW) size in 5 (five) countries.
Our Success proves that there is always a market for good products, which is reliable, customizable, easy to use, and backed by exceptional level & speed of service from a professional team, who can understand and are always ready to solve customer problems at an affordable price.
Our in-house Hardware, Firmware and Software team based in Bangalore has created a Made in India products for Global Market (Vocal for Local To Global) in line with our vision of providing “Innovative solutions to Save Energy and Reduce Carbon footprint”.
Our parent company Avi Solar team has been providing O&M service for over 2 GW plants for the past 5 years for leading Developers in India. In the year 2016, our O&M team and developers were struggling to get Local PLC based SCADA data to headquarters to analyze the plant performance and generate useful reports (DGRs, Weekly Reports, Monthly Reports). Leased line (BB) connectivity to remote plant was a challenge, and repair of damaged communication cable during rainy season was taking time, hence we have developed IoT Hardware (ETi-LOG Data logger) to send plant data using 2G/3G/4G directly to cloud, and option to store the data in data logger to avoid data loss due to any communication problem.
We have also seen many Global players SCADA System license was not renewed by developers due to high annual license fee, and poor service support from Global players in repairing nonfunctional SCADA forced O&M team and developers to manually collect the plant data for Performance analysis and reporting. We tried to address this problem by offering products at affordable prices, and quick installation and service support.
Our Retrofit solutions contribute to more than 70% of our deployment by replacing leading Global companies SCADA with our IoT SCADA (by re-using hardware or equipment wherever possible).
We have been addressing all types of customer needs like Local Monitoring, Remote Monitoring, data storage in Cloud servers or Own Servers provided by Developers, Equipment data collection through wired network or RF network within the plant, Monitor and Control of Plants, Energy Forecasting, provide plant data to SLDC, PPC (Power Plant Controller), customized dashboards, customized reports, Products access using web and Mobile Apps (Android and iOS) …etc.
Our product is installed and tested from 50KW size rooftop to 350MW single utility plant. We are working on developing advance analytics using AI/ML to provide valuable reports to Developers on Plant performance and recommended actions to improve the performance and reduce the breakdowns and energy/revenue loss.
We are confident in taking our made in India products to the Global market in coming years. We have opened our office in the US and partnered with local players in the US, Europe and Africa. We thank our customers for trusting newcomers like us and partnering with us in creating great products.
