What are Renewable Energy Control Rooms?
Control rooms are essential spaces for the correct operation and safety of a renewable energy production plant. They are a central point for any necessary information to be gathered. They detect any incidents that may occur, and also serve as a place from where to deploy any actions that may be required.
Control room operators ensure that all the components in the plant are in a good state of repair. This helps preventative maintenance tasks to be carried out, which aim to avoid more complex damage being caused in the long-term.
The control room specialises in solving emergencies. This is why signals from all of the renewable energy plant equipment are received in this location. Essentially, information on all of the equipment spread out over the plant can be seen and operated from one sole access point.
We are a company with over 30 years of sector experience, during this time we have developed new technologies and engineering skills. This enables us to guarantee that our clients will receive solutions which are personalised to their specific needs, just as we have done in other similar sectors which are noted for their high levels of safety, such as the nuclear sector.
Constructing a control room for a renewable energy plant requires a team of professional experts, with a variety of disciplines including design, manufacture, testing and the subsequent supply and installation.
Our services stand out due to the Human Factors Engineering (HFE) research included, the interfaces to facilitate communication between operators, the upgrading of obsolete instruments and the relative updates to cybersecurity.
Three decades of control room experience on the international market has allowed Tecnatom to contribute to international forums and specialist work teams from the IAEA, NRC and EPRI. In the last few years we have designed over 25 rooms, and almost 100 engineering projects in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
There is currently a significant shift taking place with analogue instruments progressively being replaced by digital instruments. At Tecnatom we are leading this revolution by incorporating new technological advances into our control rooms, as well as updating the existing technology for its safety and efficiency.
We use the most up-to-date engineering techniques, in accordance with the quality regulations established by legislation, to obtain the best results possible. Our centres minimise human error, notify us of any possible emergencies and are essential for the efficiency of renewable energy plants.
