Tatoma reaffirms its sustainable future with its new photovoltaic plant
Tatoma, the company dedicated to the manufacture of agricultural and industrial machinery, among other things, continues on its historic path towards a sustainable future. To fulfill a mission of such caliber, Tatoma entrusts its solar plant to Enertika through the Energy as a Service (EaaS) business model, which facilitates access to industrial photovoltaic self-consumption. How? By guaranteeing all phases of the installation execution process, including its continuity, and therefore its maintenance and production through energy management systems.
While Tatoma reaffirms its Quality and Environment objectives and commits to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, Enertika ensures that this energy transition meets its other mission: business competitiveness through the production of green energy.
After this brief introduction, it’s time to get down to business!
Industrial photovoltaic self-consumption in numbers
To lower the concept of industrial photovoltaic self-consumption, today we will suffice with a sample of numbers (easy to understand, of course). We start from the fact that the service that Enertika offers to Tatoma is integral, as we have commented above. This solar photovoltaic plant for self-consumption without surplus, under the photovoltaic production guarantee modality, is derived from an installed power of 178 kWp.
What is the installation like? More than 330 photovoltaic modules and two inverters of 110 kWn and 50 kWn. Without so many detours: with this solar plant, Enertika guarantees a green energy production of approximately 250 MWh per year. In this way, Tatoma is able to cover almost 40% of the energy demand of its industry.
Continuous improvement of the production of the photovoltaic system
Now, let’s talk about energy management, what does it consist of? In short, Enertika will monitor the energy parameters of the photovoltaic production that will allow Tatoma to achieve the maximum performance of its solar plant. In other words, by means of W-manager (software from Wattabit, a start-up of the Enertika group) we monitor the energy assets and manage to detect anomalies in the installation in time, and therefore act as soon as possible.
The aim of all this is to achieve a continuous improvement of the installation’s production in order to reach the peak power. The energy management that we propose consists of a combination of Smart Energy Management hardware and W-Manager software that allows access to information to both Enertika and Tatoma. That is, while the hardware is responsible for measuring the energy assets of the solar photovoltaic plant, next to which it is installed, the software receives this data and translates it into centralized information on the parameters to the customer, so that it can be constantly monitored.
The advantages of energy management
So, what are the advantages of solar plant energy management? Beyond our customer’s peace of mind and the benefits mentioned above, we must mention the energy performance. That is, the materialization of the spirit of Enertika, the continuous improvement of energy efficiency processes systematically through automatic reporting, energy audits and digitization of assets.
Enertika have one goal; to demonstrate that achieving a fair and competitive energy transition is possible. And nothing is more effective than leading by example. So this showcase is for all SMEs willing to take the plunge. We believe that there is no better incentive than assuring you that everything will work out, that there is no need for a large initial investment, Enertika does it for you. Maybe we haven’t convinced you, but just in case, we leave you our contact here.
