RMS comprises an integrated set of tools to maximize energy production, increase availability, control energy losses and improve overall operational performance with direct impact on business revenues.

RMS helps to extend asset lifetime by anticipating potential faults.
HOW RMS WORKS
RMS has a user-friendly interface developed using human-computer interaction (HCI), and incorporates market standards and modern, flexible technologies.
The RMS solution has built-in mechanisms to cater for scalability, micro-services and real-time streaming of KPI calculations. The Rest API provides open and defined interfaces that allow third parties to retrieve information on real-time data from the in-memory database and historical data through web services. The solution’s Trigger API is based on a publisher/subscriber concept and allows third-party applications to be notified of data changes. These APIs enable clients to further integrate their renewables portfolio with other systems and develop new tools.
