We show you how to achieve a turn around

Years of experience in performance simulations acquired in high tech industries and scientific disciplines ...

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Aerodynamics
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Thermodynamics

... transferred, preserving sound practices and know how, to our current area of business in ...

  • Concentrating Photovoltaics (CPV)
  • Large Scale Power Plants
  • Photovoltaics
  • Sun-Tracking Systems

... with a dynamic perspective to include future technologies.

Our methodology is up to challenges

... as it was developed to handle diversity and complexity of:

  • Module and Sun tracking mounting system technologies

  • Integration in building architectures

  • Utility scale power plants 

Selected examples:

Searchlight, Nevada, USA

Design optimization and yield prediction for a 20 MW plant with single vertical-axis tracking systems

Rovigo, Italy

Yield prediction for Europe's largest plant (2010) : 70MW fix mounted system

CPV Techonologies

Shading analysis and layout studies

Where everybody else gives up, that's where we start

…because our proprietary software includes improved models, solution algorithms and interfaces with production CAD/CAE systems to support advanced modeling

Realistic (3D) Site topography representation

Tracker matrix over irregular landscape

Arbitrary PV-System Architecture (Geometric) : irregular shapes

Generic tracker geometry: modules and strings configuration.

Our methodology reveals possibilities that others can't

Because the system perspective is central to our approach to design, and we have the application skills and access to the right tools, we provide:

Single-Pass Design

  • Solar Resource and Site Asessment
  • Preliminary Design : comparative assesment of technologies and of applicable solutions
  • Initial Design, Performance Model & Production Forecast 
  • Performance optimization, Final Design
  • Pre-Financial Due Dilligence Production Forecast
  • Provisional & Final Acceptance Performance Verification

Project based Advisory Consultancy

To support other activities related to specific requirements for product or project performance.

Sunny guys like shadows & curves

We bring knowhow to the projects, with diverse academic educational degrees:

  • Physics
  • Electrical Engineering
  • CAD Design
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Arquitecture
  • Business Administration
  • Philosophy

...and global intercultural backgrounds.

We speak German, English, Spanish, Italian, French and Serbian.

x,x % more success for you

...in working jointly our objective is to deliver a measurable, positive impact for your business, geared to achieve


  • Power
  • Accuracy
  • Innovation
  • Revenue

...and  reduced

  • Costs
  • Cycle-Time
