The Municipal Police of Pamplona has already the ultralight solar panel of TSO

The Pamplona City Council has chosen TSO’s ultralight panel to install a photovoltaic plant for self-consumption on the new sustainable roof of the Public Safety building, where the Municipal Police is located. The project has been carried out by Construcciones Leache, S. L. with an investment of 197,169 Euros.

This construction company has provided the Public Safety building in Pamplona with a modular roof made of wood from sustainable forests, in which they are integrated 266 ultralight flexible solar panels, which are exclusive products of the Sevillian company TSO, The South Oracle.

 

         

The photovoltaic plant of about 80 kW, with an estimated production of 95 MWh per year, will cover up to 20% of the energy consumed by the building. In terms of aesthetics, TSO has guaranteed a zero-visual impact with the total integration of their ultralight panels on the new sustainable roof. This is possible thanks to the technical features of these exclusive solar panels, which are flexible, glassfree, weigh less than 5 kilos and can be customized and adapted to any surface, reducing the installation time by up to 70% compared to that used in photovoltaic installations with conventional panels.

For this project, the ultralight TSO panel selected has no profile, has its junction box on the front and is composed by 60 monocrystalline cells, giving it a maximum power of 290 watts. The photovoltaic plant is made up of 38 rows of seven panels each, all of them bonded with a special polymer along a 900 square meters surface. This roof is supported and fixed on the existing one, serving also as waterproofing and improving the thermal insulation of the building. It is a ‘2 in 1’ system called ‘plug and play’ (roof plus photovoltaic installation) connected to the building’s interior network.

The electrical connection of these panels also presents an innovative solution. It has been integrated into a smart micro-network in the same building using BeePlanet’s reused second life battery storage, V2G technology charging posts for municipal electric vehicles and micro-network control technology developed by CENER. All this action is part of the European Horizon 2020 project called Stardust, to which the Pamplona City Council is a partner.

Furthermore, the Sevillian company TSO is a pioneer in the participation of photovoltaic integration projects in surfaces, buildings or existing structures. Some examples of this are the photovoltaic solar plant integrated in the carports of the Emirates Towers parking lot in Dubai and in the façade of Tower 2 in Seville, being this latter the first architectural integration in an existing façade in Europe.

         

TSO in O&M and Asset Management 2019 London

Last Thursday 5th December TSO, The South Oracle participated in O&M and Asset Management 2019 presenting its OSR patent (Optimized Solar Repowerning).
Here’s a photographic summary, an event organized by SolarPower Europe y Solar Trade Association:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TSO optimizes and repowers solar plants with drone

TSO, The South Oracle, has patented an exclusive software for the automatic identification of failures in the images taken with drone in solar panels, which in addition to guaranteeing the maintenance of photovoltaic plants, also allows repowering.

In order to develop this project called OSR, Optimized Solar Repowering, TSO has a team of engineers and scientists within the Biomedical Technology Centre of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) who work with leading-edge technology to complete this software that will be launched on the market in the first quarter of 2020.

 

What is OSR?

 

After an exhaustive analysis of photovoltaic plants in Europe, TSO’s R&D department saw the need to accelerate the maintenance process, minimizing costs and its duration. Therefore, the research focused on developing a computer system connected to drones, the aim of which was to provide in record time, a complete report of the current status of each photovoltaic panel within a plant.

Thus OSR, the preventive-predictive and corrective Smart Solar Maintenance (SSM) software, was born, which through thermography and visible image with drone also guarantees the Repowering/Revamping of solar plants, detecting failures in solar modules instantly and allowing the reinstallation of damaged panels for optimal solar production, even offering an economic study of such repowering/revamping. In this way, OSR will be presented as an innovative solution in the updating of photovoltaic plants that have already completed their warranty period and need to return to full performance.

 

                                                    

 

With this software, TSO will put an end to the problems many current installations have nowadays, which gradually affect their production during their useful life, by predicting the panels that are going to fail before compliance with the guarantee and those that have to be changed in plants that have completed 10 years of operation and are therefore out of guarantee. Reports of this company indicate that around 6-8% of the solar modules present failures in plants installed 10 years ago and that 2% of the modules will fail throughout their useful life in any solar plant.

In conclusion, OSR will cover three existing needs in photovoltaic plants. Firstly, the preventive-predictive and corrective (SSM); secondly, the plant repowering/revamping to optimize the production and finally, the economic study and the new proposal that will guarantee the maximum profitability of the solar plant.

TSO announces that a demonstration of the advantages of its OSR patent will be conducted during the O&M and Asset Management International Congress to be held on 5 December in London.

SOLARNEWS INTERVIEWS TSO ABOUT ITS SOLAR ELECTRIC TARIFF

Solarnews, the magazine specialized in solar energy, has devoted two pages to TSO (The South Oracle) in its third quarter of 2019 edition. They include the interview with Antonio Calo, CEO of TSO, about the Solar Electric Tariff that we launched last April, coinciding with the approval of the Spanish Royal Decree Law 244/2019 on the Regulation of self-consumption in Spain, becoming the first flat rate tariff for photovoltaic solar energy in this country.

TSO IN THE SEVILLIAN RADIO STATION ‘CADENA SER’

Monday, June 3, the Cadena Ser radio station show “Hoy por hoy Sevilla” gave us a few minutes of its program to talk about the advances of TSO (The South Oracle) throughout its business career. This radio program is presented, in its local coverage of Seville, by the renowned journalist Salomon Hachuel, who conducted a pleasant interview with our colleague Alejandro Pallares, manager of CFV, one of the departments of TSO. That day the program was broadcasted from the facilities of the Aquarium of Seville, on the occasion of Cadena Ser’s special programming to celebrate the World Day of the Oceans, which official day is June 8.

FIRST PPA TO PRODUCE ORGANIC EGGS WITH SOLAR ENERGY

The South Oracle (TSO) is once again a pioneer in promoting self-consumption with solar energy through PPA in Spain. Despensa San Nicolas, a company from Jaen, has relied on TSO’s experience to become the first company to sign a solar PPA in the organic food sector in Spain to produce its organic eggs, characterised by their excellent quality and high nutritional value.

This company, which specialises in organic products, will install TSO’s ultralight flexible panel on the roof of its 700 m2 poultry farm. The installation will have a 10.40 kW power capacity, covering the 100% of its daytime electricity consumption. Thanks to the photovoltaic plant that will cover the roof of the organic egg farm, Despensa San Nicolas will stop emitting circa 145,000 kg of CO2 into the atmosphere within the warranty period of the plant, reducing its carbon footprint by approximately 10,000 trees.

The photovoltaic solar plant allows Despensa San Nicolas to complete its sustainable policy, which is a step forward in the environmental balance of the farm, where the birds are raised in open space conditions within an organic olive grove.

 

 

 

 

Energy efficiency and ECO20® certification (made with solar energy)

In order to testify its commitment to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, Despensa San Nicolas will be awarded with the ECO20® seal, the only one to guarantee a 100% production with energy from the sun, which is certified by ECA Bureau Veritas.
