GridSolv is designed to offer maximum flexibility and speed of deployment.

GridSolv is an advanced energy storage solution that is designed to offer maximum flexibility and speed of deployment. This innovative and standardized architecture supports both standalone energy storage deployments as well as integrated hybrids with thermal or renewable generation assets. Coming in three sizes, the GridSolv solution is typically housed in an ISO 40-foot container and contains: batteries, power distribution, safety, fire suppression, and air conditioning systems. 

“Much like how a smartphone delivers more value than simply a processor, a camera, and a touch screen, our new GridSolv solution goes well beyond batteries, inverters and container,” said Akshay Ladwa, Vice President of Engineering at Greensmith Energy. “We designed GridSolv to complement our industry-leading GEMS software platform so that utility partners and customers can have the most robust optimization of their grid assets and protect their energy storage investment for years to come.”

Greensmith’s GridSolv solution is  already delivering results for Sinergy Kft, subsidiary of ALTEO Group , in Budapest, Hungary. ALTEO’s existing power plant, which was running on three Wärtsilä 34SG engines, is now optimized with the addition of GridSolv and GEMS, enabling the energy company to participate in the electricity market by providing frequency and secondary regulation to the national grid operating in virtual power plant mode.

Wärtsilä energy storage solutions enable power companies and developers to integrate and optimize a diverse mix of grid resources and deliver flexibility, reliability and resilience for customers seeking best-in-class system performance.

Globally, GEMS has become the most-used energy storage software and integration platform, operating in over 70 systems in nine countries. GEMS offers the widest selection of use-case applications, often integrated with renewable or thermal generation assets. In addition to energy storage applications, GEMS is able to manage any complex composition of energy assets, including wind, solar, thermal and storage.  GEMS was also recently RIG certified by CAISO , the transmission operator for California, the seventh largest economy in the world.

It’s About “Time”

At Bentley Systems, we have been talking to our users, especially owners, and it has become clear that despite our collective best efforts, there is a gap in the market.  Owners need easy access to real-time, accurate, engineering information and they need tools that make it simple to keep engineering data up-to-date, especially those engaged in brownfield and revamp projects.  It takes too much time and effort to gather and verify the information they need to make decisions effectively. And for older plants that do not have 3D models, there is simply no visual way to verify and check information easily.

Energy savings 4.0

We have all read about it: leak detection should be a top priority since, if no leak detection program has been implemented, leaks can account for 30 to 40% of consumed volume. So, why is this issue still on the table? Why is it difficult to change things in the field?

Maintenance 4.0 hype or game changer?

Last September Antwerp (Belgium) hosted the Euromaintenance 4.0 conference. With 1187 participants from 64 different countries, the European maintenance federation EFNMS and the organisers BEMAS (Belgian Maintenance Association) and Reliabilityweb.com can look back on a very successful initiative. The massive interest and very positive vibe that prevailed confirm that maintenance 4.0 is currently at the centre of attention. But is this really justified? Isn't the whole buzz surrounding the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) just a hype that will have faded in a year's time?

Bacterial Bandages, Natural Dyes and Recycled Fibres: Aalto Brings Materials Revolution to Slush

New materials play an important role in sustainable development and combatting climate change. New uses for old materials can also be a major industrial opportunity: for example, the value of biomass from forests in Finland can be doubled if used for manufacturing products of higher added value.

Maintenance: A Necessary and Important Function in the Future

Euromaintenance 2016 will take place in Athens at the end of May. It is the ideal moment to reflect on maintenance in a European context. Euromaintenance is known as the summit for all involved in maintenance across Europe, it’s the place to be. The conference, with the support of the EFNMS, is the only commercially independent conference covering the topics we deal with in the maintenance world.
