MEP Asset Management Taking Over Management of 5 Solar Parks from Solon SE
Such a company has now been found for five PV plants that were formerly managed by the above-mentioned SOLON subsidiary: the Munich-based MEP Asset Management GmbH.
MEP Asset Management manages PV plants in Spain, Italy, Germany and the Czech Republic with an international team in Munich and technical staff on site.
The primary objective is the sustainable, long-term operation of PV plants, explains MEP Asset Management's manager, Christian Reuter. Maintenance, monitoring, outside capital and equity reporting, and thus strategic risk management, can now all be performed from a single source to TÜV-certified quality, from both a technical and a commercial perspective.
With its professional execution of insurance and warranty claims, MEP Asset Management has increasingly become established in its field, particularly in the international maintenance of PV plants.
According to Mr Reuter, reliability can best be achieved through the kind of strategic risk management that MEP Asset Management can offer. This was confirmed in 2011, when TÜV Süd certified the company once again.
Such certificates are by no means usual in the relatively young solar industry. According to renowned expert Prof. Palm from ISA International Solar Academy e.V., the kind of standards that can guarantee efficient management of solar plants with optimum reliability need to be constantly redeveloped on the basis of past experiences. MEP Asset Management has access to exactly this kind of knowledge as a result of its continuous collaborations with other companies. It still seems to be the case that the planners of PV plants often forget that they are planning power plants that, as a result of their long service life, often require sustainable care and maintenance for over 20 years if they are to provide long-term efficient operation.
