Independent Solar System Commissioning
A comprehensive independent commissioning service is vital to guarantee a PV system is installed to the plans and specifications. Unfortunately the installation contractor may inadvertently deviate from the design documents thus compromising optimal system operational requirements and operational longevity.
GST applies a comprehensive commissioning process. First all construction documents are thoroughly reviewed. The system is then completely inspected, including torque checks of all connections, thermal image scans, grounding testing, string level and full system performance testing.
Detailed reports of findings and recommendations are produced for all stakeholders.
GST also performs retro commissioning on operational systems which may be underperforming, being modified, or being expanded.
There are millions of inverters, combiner boxes, and control panels in solar systems throughout the country that have faults that can't be seen by electricians. Electrical thermal imaging is the most efficient way to detect faults, hot spots and loose connections. Studies show electrical thermography inspections have a pay back to the client of 4:1.
GST utilizes the latest thermal imaging cameras and diagnostic software to identify electrical problems and correct them before they become costly faults requiring system downtime and emergency repairs.
Solar Predictive and Preventative Maintenance
Providing maximum economic and environmental benefits requires a customized predictive and preventive maintenance program crafted to meet each of GST's clients unique needs.
A custom comprehensive program of inspections and tests to identify and correct problems before they become costly emergency repairs is essential for systems with 20 year plus contractual obligations.
GST designs the unique site specific maintenance program, executes it , documents all activities, and produces reports for all stakeholders.
