Solar Asset Management Europe 2020event picture
In 2020 Solar Asset Management Europe is coming to Frankfurt am Main. Since Solar Asset Management Europe is the main European event addressing all the asset management and O&M topics related to the operational phase of solar PV, Kipp & Zonen and Lufft, representing the OTT HydroMet Meteorological Division, welcome the opportunity to participate in this must-attend event. We hope to see you in Frankfurt.

From November 12 to 13
Location: Frankfurt am Main, Germany

About Solar Asset Management

Hosted by Solarplaza, Solar Asset Management Europe, fully dedicated to ensuring optimal operations of PV assets & portfolios is moving to the financial capital of the Eurozone, Frankfurt am Main. The conference will unite in one venue the leading players in the European solar market, including: asset managers, IPPs, utilities, investors, (O&M) service providers, manufacturers, developers and advisors. Solar Asset Management Europe is the place where you can learn more about the key topics addressing the technical and financial aspects of operational solar PV. It’s a meeting hub for the industry and an excellent opportunity to gain additional insights into the fundamental and cutting-edge topics of solar PV operations.

OTT HydroMet represented by Kipp & Zonen and Lufft

At Solar Asset Management Europe OTT HydroMet’s Meteorological Division will be represented by Kipp & Zonen and Lufft. Kipp & Zonen is a specialist in the measurement of solar and sky radiation and provides class-leading instruments used in meteorological networks around the world, while Lufft is a well-known producer of professional components and systems for climate and environmental measurements. Our combined know-how and experience enables us to offer you complete solutions for your applications. At SAM Europe our expertise will be at your disposal and our high quality measuring instruments will be on display. Are you interested in what the Kipp/Lufft combination can offer? Check out the items below.

All weather conditions and soiling monitored 

We are pleased to announce that combined engineering of Kipp & Zonen and Lufft  has resulted in the ‘perfect set-up’ for determining the actual impact of environmental conditions on solar power generation. This perfect set-up combines instruments for the measurement of GHI and POA irradiance, wind speed and direction, air temperature, module temperature and soiling. 

We offer measuring instruments for all weather parameters that effect your plant’s performance ratio. Our smart pyranometers, compact weather stations and DustIQ soiling monitoring system can send all data directly to your site management system, using the Modbus® communication protocol.

WS600-UMB Smart Weather Sensor

WS600-UMB Smart Weather Sensor is a compact all-in-one weather sensor with integrated ventilated radiation protection for measuring air temperature, relative humidity, precipitation intensity, precipitation type, precipitation quantity, air pressure, wind direction and wind speed.

Highlights of this Smart Weather Sensor are: all-in-one weather sensor, low power, heater, aspirated radiation shield, maintenance-free operation and an open communication protocol. WS600 has various interfaces, i.e. RS485 with supported protocols UMB-Binary, UMB-ASCII, Modbus-RTU, Modbus-ASCII, XDR and SDI-12.

DustIQ, the revolutionary soiling alert system

Off all elements that influence a plant’s performance soiling has the largest impact. Still, cleaning all the arrays of PV panels of an average solar plant is a labor intensive and costly exercise, even if you use an automated robot system. Until now all you could do is clean your panels at regular intervals. But today there is better alternative!

DustIQ enables you to schedule a cleaning run when it is most beneficial and cost-effective.
DustIQ is a smart solution, especially in comparison with traditional systems with a reference PV panel that needs to be kept clean all the time. A clear benefit of DustIQ is that it does not require any maintenance; just clean DustIQ when you clean the arrays of solar panels it is monitoring.

GHI and POA pyranometers 

Knowing the solar irradiance, both horizontal and tilted, is key to decision making in asset management and O&M. Our Smart pyranometers are a perfect match for solar energy systems as these instruments have digital signal processing and interfaces optimized for industrial data acquisition and control systems.

Particularly for commercial rooftops we designed the RT1 PV monitoring system.

Welcome to the OTT HydroMet booth!

OTT HydroMet is a Sponsor of Solar Asset Management Europe. Our Intersolar crew hopes to see you at the OTT HydroMet booth. We will be pleased to answer your questions and help you select the best possible measurement solution for your particular application. We’d highly appreciate it if you would share your insights on solar radiation measurement and on any other weather parameters with us. Your feedback is an essential asset for us to be able to fulfil your present and future requirements and to meet the expectations of the renewable energy industry.
