The veteran EPC team has an accumulated experience of more than 1.6 GW in the construction of renewable assets across the world. The team is composed of the following areas:

EPC

OUR OBJECTIVE IS TO GUARANTEE THE CORRECT OPERATION OF THE PLANT, FOCUSED ON THE ANALYSIS OF VARIABLES, MONTHLY PREVENTIVE MEASURES, AND TIMELY CORRECTIONS.

When construction is completed, Verano EPC turns the operating plant over to Verano O&M to operate and maintain the plant for a minimum of two years. During this stage, the O&M team guarantees the performance ratio (PR) previously agreed with the client. The interdisciplinary O&M team works relentlessly for a fluid plant operation, aiming to exceed guarantees offered to its clientes. It does this through real-time monitoring of all electrical and mechanical variables of solar generation systems. This allows O&M to detect and correct any failure or malfunction that could affect its performance as quickly as possible. Verano O&M operations more than 200 MW of operational plants, the largest being a 100 MW plant in Northern Argentina.
