Acciona Energy

SCADA Solution with .NET

Challenge

Acciona Energy is a world leader in renewable energy. In order to manage one of the largest solar farms in the world, they thought of developing a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system based on Microsoft .NET technologies. This system would allow them to obtain real time control over 48,000 alarms and 42,000 variables, one of them being the power connected to the network.

SOLUTION

Plain Concepts has been involved since the early stages of development giving internal support, contributing decisively to the solution architecture definition, and offering training and mentoring to the development team in Visual Studio, .NET technologies and ALM. Acciona Energy achieved significant development and management reduction costs thanks to their SCADA system that they can now scale and adapt to other of their facilities. Acciona Energy is still counting on Plain Concepts to accelerate the development and for further training and mentoring.
