Swinerton Renewable Energy’s SOLV Team Expands Their Bend Office

San Diego, California: Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE), a division of Swinerton Builders, has expanded their office in Bend, Oregon.

The space is home to SOLV®—System Operations Live View—SRE’s proprietary and industry-leading utility-scale solar facility monitoring and control platform that provides O&M services to over 1GW of plants, from Hawaii to Eastern Canada.

The office serves as the central hub for their SCADA engineers, product management, and project management. Equipped with state-of-the-art network systems and equipment, and designed with engineering productivity in mind, the collaborative work environment enables better communication and workflow—providing even quicker resolution and system
implementation times.  

In addition to their recently completed office expansion, SRE is also building a Network Operations Center in their Bend space, which will provide backup for their headquarters in San Diego. In doing so, their SCADA engineers can support the extensive network of O&M plants operated by SRE. SRE also recently invested in an in-house lab with SCADA racks and equipment, allowing the SOLV team to set up and simulate plant activity. The new facility also incorporates network and operations infrastructure, which helps SOLV to focus and streamline their commissioning capabilities. They can now work in a more integrated manner with utility companies, bringing SRE’s plants online in a more efficient and secure way.

SRE’s Bend team is also focusing heavily on product development. This effort allows them to remain competitive within the market, while increasing the services provided by their SCADA/SOLV system. Not only do they focus on being actively involved with utility companies, but they also seek out the voice of the customer. By putting others’ needs first, SRE drives product development through constant innovation. In doing so, they remain at the forefront of the industry—and the choice partner for developers and utilities.
