Solarian 2018 Year Assessment
The first quarter of 2018 was very active and rapid for the solar sector. When the projects carried out in 2017 were forced to adapt to the new legislation, projects were suspended, or attempted to be completed in a hurry. The emerging result led investors to understand the importance of independent auditing firms. Although the rest of the year was painful for the sector, it was intense for us.
As Solarian throughout the year, we contributed to over 250 MW projects. Approximately 130 MW of these are audit and inspection and the rest are consultancy services. In this process, more than 100 companies entrusted their projects to us.Under the name of consultancy; We tried to provide added value to the projects of all stakeholders of the sector, including producers, financiers and investors. On the producer side, we conducted technology researches, project management on the investor side, and plant valuation and feasibility studies on the financier side.
Under the name of inspection; We checked the solar power plants in accordance with the IEC 62446 standard. In this service delivery, we carried out analysis maps beyond the auditing and reporting, and continued to analyze the plants after the actions taken and tried to deliver the plant in a manner that did not solve the problem. We believe that this is the most important feature that distinguishes us from other audit firms and we are proud of our audit team due to the positive feedback received from our investors.
As a result of the inspections, we have prevented loss of 3000 kWp installed power and 5000 MWh production. We have seen that many different causes due to various reasons, such as low performance because of improper engineering due to shadows caused by incorrect engineering, low performance because of not using suitable technologies and cell damage caused by loss of production . You can see more detailed results in our infographic.
To avoid some of the problems mentioned above are unfortunately not possible for power plants which are already commissioned. Disassembly of the construction, approximately 4,000 panels per MW, or approximately 20 inverters, the technically inadequate cables to remove and replace, such as creating a drainage system can not be performed in commissioned power plants.
The only way to avoid this is to work with an independent audit firm not only when there is a problem, but it is necessary to work with an audit firm in entire process of investment in order not to leave a measure in all processes of the investment. We, as a team, aim to pioneer long-term efforts together with investors and business partners and see our customers as a real stakeholder. For this reason, we have created our vision by aiming not only needs-based, but also progressive-based progress.
Solarian 2019 Year Goals
We are also preparing to provide our domestic consultancy and inspection services for solar energy investments abroad.
under the brand identity and independent local audit firm with the audit team by expanding the services we perform in Turkey, will perform abroad.
Since we have gained experience and clearly see that the reason for each plant’s incomplete production is different, we plan to support investors in a more affordable, faster and value-added way by creating more flexible audit scopes than the problems of the power plants.
