Schneider Electric Solar Business has been named by GTM Research as one of the top five solar O&M (Operations & Maintenance) services provider worldwide.
Earlier this year, Schneider Electric announced that it had reached the 1GW milestone in service contracts around the world.
The results of the report from GTM Research confirm the growth and presence of Schneider Electric Solar Business as a top global O&M services provider with over 1GW of PV power plants under contract.
In 2014, many additional customers around the world decided to select Schneider Electric as their O&M services provider including Russia, the Philippines, Japan and the recently announced 300MW PV project in Cestas, France, the largest PV power plant in Europe.
“The recent reports from IHS on market shares and from GTM Research on O&M confirm not only the growth of our operations and of our maintenance services, but also re-enforces the trust that customers have in Schneider Electric,” said Pierre-Emmanuel Frot, VP of the PV Power Plants business. “Our vast presence around the world, our ability to deliver a complete and optimized electrical solution, along with the financial strength and history of Schneider Electric, ensures that we will stand behind our solutions and will support our customers and partners for the long term.”
Schneider Electric O&M service offers ranges from remote technical support and spare parts management to preventive and corrective maintenance of the complete balance of systems. In addition, the service offers fully leverage the advanced features of Conext Control, Schneider Electric’s PV plant monitoring and control system.
Customers choosing Schneider Electric for O&M services are often selecting the ‘’ULTRA’’ service offer which embeds performance guarantees on a long term basis in order to secure their return on investment.
