FRENELL shows long term experience in operating and maintaining its solar fields since early 2008. Permanently improving the O&M processes and the technology increases performance while lowering operational expenditure.
All components for a CSP plant developed and delivered by FRENELL are characterized by a high level of quality and availability. A reliable and safe operation of the solar field is managed by the implemented and highly automated FRENELL controller software which is integrated within the control system of the CSP plant.
The performance of a CSP plant depends significantly on the cleanliness of the installed reflecting mirrors. The fully automated FRENELL cleaning system provides high quality standards and low water consumption at the same time. Additional maintenance services like replacements of single plant components are facilitated, thanks to the modular approach of FRENELL in its solar field design.
Continuous monitoring of the solar field performance is a fundamental part of the FRENELL O&M quality control. Daily automated performance reports allow the plant operators to optimize the operation of the plant as well as recognizing default risks in a timely manner.
FRENELL provides full training services for the O&M staff on site. This includes staff training as well as the provision of the necessary documents such as manuals and technical specifications.
