We enable US plant owners and investors to boost their plant efficiencies and yields, so that they achieve a maximum return on their investment," says Murad Can, Vice President Global Customer Operations of skytron energy. "Just this week, we completed a 5.8 MWp PV project in Arizona, providing advanced power control management and monitoring solutions to ensure maximum energy output."

With 1GW across 127 new installations and an average plant size of 8.1 MW, GTM* ranked skytron energy as the world's second largest utility-scale monitoring vendor in 2012. To date, more than 4.5 GWp of solar power generation installed worldwide rely on skytron energy. A pioneer of sustainable and efficient energy generation, the company developed the first hybrid power system over 20 years ago and builds on a long-standing experience.

skytron energy's integrated control system for grid stability management can be used for PV, wind, and hybrid power installations. The power plant controller is designed to master complex power plant architectures comprising various power generation plants that feed into one common point of coupling. It meets the grid operators' demand for controlled grid injection at medium and high voltage level and is easily adjusted to different regional and international grid codes.

The company's leading service portfolio comprises project engineering, installation, commissioning and configuration of the monitoring and control system as well as grid connection, real time control room featuring alarm management, operation & maintenance (O&M), plant management and reporting of the entire power plant. "Our products and solutions optimize power plant performance, reliability, and efficiency," says Murad Can.
