Overdrive to Monitor Sembcorp Floating Solar Panels
1. Safeguarding the solar panels
Overdrive’s GPS tracking system secures the position of each island by giving real-time updates whenever each solar PV floats away. Each anchor point was fitted with a tracker which allowed technicians to gain full visibility over the panels. Any movement made by the panels is automatically detected and technicians will be notified instantly through Overdrive’s platform.
2. Preventive Measures
Electrical cables are harnessed in between panels and can potentially break if the panel drifts too far apart. Overdrive provides real-time alerts and notifications that allowed technicians to have faster response time, expedite possible onsite repairs, or even prevent any costly unplanned downtime. The system also enabled geofence capabilities that allowed them to set up virtual boundaries and prevent panels from drifting away from the parameter.
Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm project is in motion and Overdrive is expected to deploy more trackers by the end of 2021.
