The 10.32-MW-project “Date” on the island of Hokkaido in Japan has been equipped with a system for monitoring, control and remote supervision by skytron energy. To cope with increasing demand in Japan and ensure timely local support there, skytron energy also will open a subsidiary in Tokyo in the first half of this year.

While previous Japanese projects by skytron energy did not involve any power plant control requirements, the installation could only be connected to grid operator HEPCO’s system using the special CDT (Cyclic Digital Data Transmission) remote control interface of service provider Ohkura Electric Co., Ltd. “The CDT interface to the grid operator allows the controller to send setpoint values to the system and receive our operating data reports, which is why we adapted our skycontrol power plant controller to these digital and analogue inputs and outputs. Thanks to the excellent cooperation with Ohkura for HEPCO and the linguistic help from our local support team, everything went smoothly,” reports Nicolas Plenge, Regional Sales Head APAC at skytron energy.

The “Date” project features the full product range of skytron energy to monitor the plant optimally. This is meant to guarantee maximum plant performance and top returns for investors.
