Summary

Summary: 
A Spanish start-up has developed solution for the design of utility-scale photovoltaics plants. It accelerates and optimizes the process of designing utility-scale photovoltaics plants by the automatization of a task that was carried out manually by engineers. The company is looking for license agreements.

Description

Description: 

Traditional forms of designing photovoltaics plants are obsolete and inefficient, time intensive-costly and difficult to readapt. This process requires a lot of work that is carried out by engineers and draftsmen that expend long hours calculating formulas and algorithms, generating hours and reports.
In order to address the inefficiency of this process, the Spanish start-up has developed a solution that automatizes the designing of utility-scale photovoltaics plants.

The solution allows to design photovoltaic plants (feasibility studies and conceptual engineering) and its development (basic engineering, engineering for RFP (Request for Proposal), financing process and permitting process).

The technology carries out the designing process following the next steps:
1)Project location analysis.
2)Meteorological data consultation
3)Equipment configuration.
4)Configuration optimization.
5)Project implementation.
6)Electrical configuration.
7)Documentation generation.
8)EPC (Procurement and Construction) request for proposals.

It provides all the needed documentation and reports: Design report, energy yield documentation, memory configuration, spread sheets (bill of quantities, equipment sheets, project data sheets), blueprint (general layout, electrical diagrams, civil details) and other optional documents (exportable energy, earth movements, drains )

The solution is specially suitable for engineering companies, developers/utilities, EPC(Engineering, Procurement and Construction) companies / contractors, equipment manufacturers and banks & funds.

Despite the fact, that the company was born in 2017, its technology has been very successful and the company has already started cooperation with several multinational companies.

The company is looking for international business development through ICT integrators willing to cooperate under license agreement.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
-It automatizes the design of utility-scale photovoltaics plants getting it done in around 5 minutes. On the contrary it takes around 3 weeks when carried out by different technicians. -The time required to make a photovoltaic plant design and to calculate the construction cost is about 1 hour, while the traditional way takes around 2-3 weeks. -It provides higher accuracy and always the same format documents and with the same criteria. -It allows making quick changes in photovoltaic plant configuration.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The Spanish start-up is looking for international ICT integrators in order to expand its business internationally. The role of the partner sought is to market this solution among companies from mainly the following profiles: Engineering companies, developers/utilities, EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) companies / contractors, equipment manufacturers and banks & funds. The kind of partnership sought is license agreement.
