Asset management with an owner’s viewpoint

Asset Management and Operations Services

Safety

Safety is our top priority.  All site personnel go through rigorous safety training and have the right as well as the responsibility to stop work if they find unsafe working conditions.

Site Operations

Your site deserves dedicated attention to the details that matter to you.  From our field staff to our management team, our focus on maximizing the value of your assets begins at the top.

Asset Management

From compliance and settlements to advanced reporting and analytics, our highly-experienced team has managed solar and wind assets ranging from 20kW to over 300 MW.

Analytics

Our easy to use tools and software platforms allow for quick analysis of operations and trends.  Customize your dashboard to visualize your site’s data and set up system alerts.

Remote Monitoring

Our 24/7 support staff provides constant oversight of your assets.  Our web based platform allows you to monitor your site status with the click of a button or via your smart phone.

Asset Management

The term “asset management” has many meanings throughout the renewable energy industry.  An effective asset management function consists of much more than just document compliance and cost controls.  The ultimate goal of an effective asset management strategy is to preserve and enhance the long-term value of assets through rigorous project performance reviews while delivering on internal and external commitments.

 

At Longroad, our asset managers, operations teams, engineers, accounting and finance specialists work together to provide a comprehensive solution.  We rely on data, analytics, expertise and teamwork to meet all of your operational needs.  Full scope of services including data monitoring, collection, and analysis, resource assessment and performance improvement plans, landowner and other stakeholder relationships, energy trading and scheduling, and risk management.

Site Operations

Solar Sites

In an environment where one cent per watt can meaningfully impact the profitability of a project, some providers look to take short cuts to lower short-term costs while ignoring long term viability.  With an owner’s eye toward managing your assets, we provide a cost-benefit approach to preventative and corrective work not common among other providers.

Wind Sites

Each wind farm is unique in its permitting, configuration, and challenges. Managing and operating wind sites requires flexibility.  Because we’re owners ourselves, we understand what is important to our partners.  We create relationships and scopes of work that aim to maximize site production and minimize costs.

Operational Experience

Our operations team has worked together for over 10 years, initially as part of First Wind.  This team has operated both wind and solar facilities across North America with some notable accomplishments including:

 

  • As part of First Wind, managing five different wind OEMs and over 17 projects with an installed capacity of 1.7 GW. These projects spanned from Maine to Maui and included the first utility scale battery installed in the US.
  • Built, developed, and deployed a successful self-operations team for a legacy wind turbine platform in the wake of the OEM’s bankruptcy. This included the formation of a parts entity to optimize parts usage and inventory rates.
  • Successfully built relationships with local communities and vendors where the projects are located.
  • Directly oversaw both wind and solar across North America including C&I solar projects and large utility installations. Collectively, the team performed O&M and Asset Management Services on an installed portfolio of over 4 GW of projects.

 

We are ready to bring our experience, professionalism, and owner’s approach to your assets.

Remote Operations Center (ROC)
