Black & Veatch, a provider of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, and ENACT Systems Inc., a company specialising in cloud-based software for the solar industry, have announced a strategic partnership designed to elevate commercial solar project management to new heights in Southeast Asia.
Driven by the global march towards decarbonisation and sustainability, large solar projects in this region are becoming highly distributed and increasingly complex. And the market is growing – Black & Veatch estimates that Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam will see an additional 19 GW in solar installations and capacity by 2024. But with COVID-19 driving a shift towards new, digital-based working models, traditional project management has been set aside as project execution continues to evolve into the digital age. By embracing the power of automation, the solar industry can optimise project management while introducing new opportunities in efficiency and productivity.
To do this, Black & Veatch’s Global Distributed Energy business will combine its experience and industry-leading service and EPC offerings with the ENACT cloud-based platform to automate development and deployment processes for distributed solar projects across Southeast Asia. By digitising the entire project design and development process, the platform helps manage project design, management, financing, execution and asset management needs across multiple countries in the region, including Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. In doing so, the platform will help streamline efforts while delivering greater efficiencies across the entire solar project life cycle.
