Operations & Maintenance for Commercial Systems and PV Power Plants

A properly maintained and serviced system can generate up to 30 percent better returns. SMA Operations & Maintenance (O&M) offers you full service with our comprehensive package. SMA manages all the technical operations of your PV system.

Increase Yields and Reduce Risks

Dirty modules, wires bitten by animals, shading and overgrown vegetation can all pose a risk to optimal system operation, and diminish your yields. So put the technical operation of your system into the hands of experienced SMA experts and profit from optimal system performance and high yields.

Remote Monitoring in Real-Time

Remote Monitoring in Real-Time

Major investments require a high degree of security. For that reason, SMA keeps a close eye on your PV system. You profit not only from our full-service protection, but also from a higher return on investment (ROI).

In our SMA Solar Monitoring Center, service experts remotely monitor your inverters in real time and make sure that your system functions as planned and that your profits stay on track. For this, we use the most up-to-date technology to analyze power output and detect potential problems immediately. We resolve potential irregularities either directly by remote access or on site.

Customized Solutions

With our ability to effectively address both commercial and utility-scale O&M, SMA has the strength and experience to adapt to your requirements and service a diverse portfolio of PV investments while consistently delivering a high level of performance.

O&M Preventative

The SMA Preventative plan includes manufacturer preventative maintenance and a visual inspection of the array and BoS components such as combiner boxes, disconnects, and Data Acquisition Systems (DAS). Thermal scans on all electrical DC wiring, inverters, e-housing, pad-mounted transformers, and other electrical equipment identify anomalies. Torque checks and DAS maintenance are also included. Expert advice is provided through remote system monitoring with 24/7 customer support, while a written maintenance summary after each visit and an annual maintenance report provide complete documentation.

O&M Proactive

Expanding upon the essential service components of the Preventative plan, the Proactive plan adds in a 24-hour emergency response time and written report for emergency care. Spare parts inventory management simplifies maintenance planning and preserves uptime in the event of an unforeseen mechanical issue. Warranty administration allows for greater focus on revenue-generating activities. System performance is improved through regularly scheduled sub-system testing and verification, real-time monitoring, thermography and calibration services.
