GE Intelligent Platforms says that Austin, Texas-based HelioVolt has implemented the Proficy software suite in its new thin-film solar PV module manufacturing plant.
The company chose GE's software to increase plant yield and throughput, while meeting strict control and traceability requirements, according to GE. HelioVolt is producing thin-film solar PV modules for commercial rooftop, utility-scale ground-mount, residential, building-integrated photovoltaics and custom installations.
The software system employed at HelioVolt is made up of five core elements of the Proficy suite. GE says this system provides the company with robust redundancy, enhanced data security, reliable information and increased control of every aspect of operations through access to critical data.
