TNB Renewables Sdn. Bhd. (“TRe”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (“TNB”), the national electricity utility company, is partnering Envision Digital International Pte Ltd (“Envision Digital”) to deploy big data analytics applications in its large scale solar (LSS) farm in Sepang, Selangor in Malaysia to improve energy productivity and operational efficiency.
The 50 megawatts (MW) solar farm is one of the largest in Malaysia with 238,140 solar panels generating more than 110,000 megawatt-hour (MWh) of energy in its first year of operation in 2019.
The project with Envision Digital will involve the deployment of its cloud-based digital analytics applications. Powered by Envision Digital’s AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things) operating system, EnOSTM, the applications will strengthen TRe’s ability to actively contribute to the growth and use of renewable energy sources across the company’s portfolio of energy assets.
Together the end-to-end solution will help TRe’s operations team to have quick, real-time access to the farm’s operation status, generation performance, power output, and accurate power forecasts. This will improve operational and maintenance efficiency, and ensure TRe can manage grid supply and demand effectively.
