Jul 2016: BlueNRGY Group and Inaccess announce expansion of Draker – Inaccess strategic alliance

London, July 11, 2016 – BlueNRGY Group Limited (OTC:CBDEF) (“BlueNRGY”)
and Inaccess Holdings Limited (“Inaccess Holdings”), both leaders in missioncritical
infrastructure management solutions and related asset management
systems, today announced the formalization and expansion of the strategic
alliance between Draker and Inaccess. Their respective business units
provide data management, analytics and operational control for solar and
other renewable power systems. To strengthen the companies’ capacity to
meet the rapidly expanding demand from large multinational customers for
enhanced services and software, BlueNRGY raised $5.0 million of equity
financing, of which approximately $3.7 million was invested in Inaccess
Holdings for a non-control equity stake.


The equity investment aligns these geographically complementary solar
monitoring market leaders to combine their proven technologies and delivery
capabilities to better serve existing and new clients. In furtherance of a
single vision, Christos Georgopoulos, CEO of Inaccess, will also assume the
senior executive role at Draker while BlueNRGY and Inaccess further explore
integrating their monitoring software platforms and organizations. Taking
into account backlog at Draker and Inaccess that is expected to be fulfilled
through the end of 2016, the combined solar generation capacity monitored
and managed by the companies will be among the worlds largest, exceeding
6GW at more than 4,000 sites distributed across six continents.


Mr. Georgopoulos said, “The power and potential of the Inaccess / Draker
strategic alliance was identified more than two years ago. After months of
work sharpening the focus to meet client needs, it is gratifying for this vision
to now be realized. The customer service capability of the Draker team and
increased access to asset owners in North America, will accelerate the
market penetration of the Inaccess utility-scale monitoring and control
technologies. Concurrently, Draker will immediately gain new distribution
channels for its industry-leading DAS systems and its robust monitoring and
analytics tools. While we have begun to identify ways to combine the best
features of both the Inaccess and Draker software, existing customers of
each company will continue to have access to their data through the familiar
portals and interfaces.”


The suite of products and commissioning and support service available as a
result of the strategic alliance is the broadest in the industry, enabling true
“follow-the-sun” customer support. It also allows Draker and Inaccess to fully
and effectively address the full range of non-residential solar installations,
representing the preponderance of capacity expected to be installed over the
next 5 years.


William Morro, Chairman & Managing Director of BlueNRGY stated, “The
alliance between Draker and Inaccess, along with BlueNRGY’s investment in
Inaccess is an important milestone in building the preeminent independent
monitoring and asset management platform. Inaccess has great technical
depth and management talent that can significantly accelerate BlueNRGY’s
growth and help us set the standards for the independent monitoring
industry. We are thrilled to be working with the entire Inaccess team and to
be bringing their leading edge solutions to the utility-scale market in the
Americas.”

Jul 2014: Inaccess to monitor and optimize Panama’s first utility-scale solar power plant, Sarigua

As Panama Struggles with Electricity Capacity, PV Monitoring is Key for Country’s Top Grid Operator, EGESA

 

SAN FRANCISCO – INTERSOLAR NORTH AMERICA – July 8, 2014 – Inaccess, a global provider of solar monitoring and control systems, today announced that it has successfully commissioned its solar power plant optimization solution, insolar, at a 2.4 MW solar power plant in Sarigua, a desert region in Panama’s Herrera province. Sarigua is the country’s first grid-scale solar array and is owned by La Empresa de Generacion Electricita (EGESA), Panama’s primary grid operator.

 

As Panama enriches its electricity production mix, Inaccess’ insolar monitoring and control system will optimize plant performance and financial returns through a dense network of monitors, sensors and controls providing real time data, fault detection and analysis. The system will monitor performance of the plant’s hardware including panels, strings, inverters and fuses as well as integrate information from Panama’s grid to optimize for current or future market factors like demand and price. Panama, which is set to open its expanded Panama Canal next year, is a quickly growing market for solar taking its place as the world’s value-added logistics hub.

 

Located nine miles from the city of Chitre, Sarigua was connected to the grid in March 2014. The utility-scale plant is now providing 30 percent of the surrounding area’s electricity demand – equivalent to the power used by 2,600 local homes. Greenwood Biosar, a joint venture between Greenwood Energy and Biosar, provided engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for Sarigua, originally a project of Enel Green Power Panama. “The sophisticated monitoring solution provided by Inaccess will make it easier to identify underperformance or malfunction at the plant, allowing operators to intervene more quickly, saving money and ensuring financial health of the installation”, said Greenwood Biosar CEO, Aris Polychronopoulos.

 

“We are proud of having contributed to a solar “first” for Panama. We are honored to support the international expansion of strategic partners like Greenwood Biosar by leveraging Inaccess’ ability to tailor our monitoring solutions to address specific requirements of diverse geographic markets” said Inaccess CEO, Christos Georgopoulos.
