Invenergy, a global developer and operator of sustainable energy solutions, announced that its affiliate, Invenergy Services, has expanded to serve third-party owners. With an award-winning services platform, Invenergy Services is opening up its end-to-end energy solutions offerings to businesses, utilities, and other asset owners.
“With increased asset ownership from utilities and investors, owners are pursuing options in the market for value-added service partners,” said Alex George, Invenergy SVP, Asset Management & Operations. “Our track-record of success as an asset owner and operator offers an owner-minded, managed-risk approach that differentiates Invenergy Services.”
Anchored by a progressive and open safety culture, Invenergy Services currently manages over 10,000 MW of wind, solar, natural gas and battery storage facilities, including 2,800 MW owned by third-parties.
While validating its offerings in the market over the past year, the company also signed contracts totaling over 1,200 MW with durations up to 20 years for a range of services including operations and maintenance, balance of plant, asset management, engineering and analytics, and energy management across wind, solar, and battery storage technologies.
“Invenergy Services’ expertise is an advantage for owners looking to maximize energy asset performance and value,” said Brad Purtell, Director of Invenergy Services Business Development. “By managing assets for other owners alongside our existing portfolio of Invenergy-owned assets, Invenergy Services enables customers to leverage fleet-scale benefits and harness actionable engineering and analytics programs.”
The company says it maintains a production-based, wind-turbine availability that significantly exceeds DNV-GL’s industry projections. At the plants, dedicated teams of on-site expert technicians perform maintenance and inspections throughout the year. At the state-of-the-art Invenergy Control Center (ICC), more than 50 operations engineers, performance analysts, and control room operators provide 24/7 monitoring with access to over 500 million data points per hour, helping to deliver maximum performance and reliability.
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has recognized Invenergy Services for Excellence in Operations twice, most recently in 2017. Invenergy Services team members will be present at upcoming industry conferences including the Wind Project O&M and Safety conference presented by the AWEA and the Wind Operations Dallas conference presented by New Energy Update.
