Alencon and Alectris

Alectris has chosen to offer Alencon’s SPOT for retrofitting aging solar PV plants around the world to improve yield, increase plant safety and decrease ongoing O&M costs.

Alectris is an operations, maintenance and management third party provider with offices in Europe, the United States, the Middle East and Asia. Innovation shaping services, software and retrofit technologies has driven the company’s growth, including the 2013 introduction of ACTIS, the world’s first Solar Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software platform and the launch of its retrofit technologies group in 2015.

Alectris will add Alencon’s SPOT to its roster of efficiency enhancing PV solutions as a result of the unique performance improvements the product can offer to existing PV plants.  Additionally, the Alectris network of skilled solar engineers will be responsible for the installation of SPOT in markets ranging from Europe to Asia.

“SPOT is a distinct opportunity to improve energy production while lowering O&M costs for existing solar PV plants,” states Vassilis Papaeconomou, Managing Director of Alectris. “Alencon demonstrates a consistent track record of innovation that aligns with our strategy of offering plant owners and investors the most cutting edge optimization technologies on the market.”
