Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE), a division of Swinerton Builders, has expanded and enhanced its office in Bend, Ore., to serve as the central hub for the company's supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) engineers and both product and project management.
The company says that this space is home to SOLV – System Operations Live View – which is SRE's proprietary utility-scale solar facility monitoring and control platform that provides operations and maintenance services to over 1 GW of plants, from Hawaii to eastern Canada.
Additionally, SRE is building a network operations center in their Bend office, which will serve as backup for their headquarters in San Diego.
SRE also recently invested in an in-house lab with SCADA racks and equipment, allowing the SOLV team to set up and simulate plant activity. The new facility also incorporates network and operations infrastructure, helping SOLV to streamline the company's commissioning capabilities.
