The Ground Control SCADASat Solution
The Ground Control SCADASat solution provides the connectivity between the wind farm and the termination point, reporting the data in real-time to effectively control the power generation. This is a crucial function of SCADASat to prevent power saturation at the point of termination and ensure most economic use of the power generated.
All profits from this power generating enterprise are reinvested into local community projects for which the trustees provide funding. During 2020, this was primarily contributions to the prevention of the COVID outbreak and previously, repair work to improve the islands’ harbour areas.
“The SCADASat solution has proved an essential piece of kit for the efficient and effective monitoring of wind generated power on the island. It’s because of SCADASat that we can generate the funds that we do to reinvest in the community.”
There’s further scope of opportunity for not only Garth Winds, but similar community Scottish Highlands projects.
A probable model is that of a hire scheme. Ground Control can deliver all the necessary hardware and robust maintenance, while communities reap the financial rewards of hiring out the hub to anchor services.
Further, Ground Control’s global reach to even the world’s most remote data, presents an opportunity to permanently install infrastructure for this group of Islands to harness the power from much needed renewable energy sources.
