Additional information

– Higeco More, a leading company in the development of advanced turnkey solutions for monitoring and control of PV assets, has completed the supply of its Energy Management System for 11 plants in South Africa
– The 11 plants are located near major South African cities including Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Port Elizabeth and are operated by a drinks company
– The sites host PV systems with 11 MW of generation capacity and are also equipped with diesel generators to ensure continuity of production during load shedding periods or faults in the electricity grid
– Due to that situation, many companies have equipped their plants both with PV systems and back-up diesel generators to ensure continuity of production
– It is therefore necessary to install an energy management system (EMS) to manage and balance the energy flows in the micro-grid at the production sites.
