Indovance Partnered to Develop Solar Panel Project on 314 Acres of Land!

Did you know the energy, the Sun provides for one hour is enough to generate electricity for a complete year globally? However, we are not using even a fraction of it to our benefit. Harnessing solar power can bring in a very significant change to our ecosystem. But all these boils down to just one thing. Who will make it possible?

One of the companies in the USA took up a work of setting up large solar panels on a gigantic area of land. They needed assistance for the project planning and drafting through CAD software where Indovance partnered with them to complete the project in time.

Here is how Indovance helped setting up 3500 Solar Panels on a land as huge as 314 acres!

Client Overview

Our client, a leading solar equipment company based in the USA, deals in installations of solar panels. They were looking for an outsourcing partner to help them in managing all the software related work for solar installation such as Drafting, Proposing Site, Layouts, Contour Mapping, etc. The client liked the project management cycle that we follow and was quick enough to become a long-term business partner so that any sudden spike at work does not make any harm to the ongoing work process and still get the work delivered on time.

Our client was a leading solar equipment company from the USA.

 Client Input

We received data in a pdf format where the existing site conditions, such as property boundary, wetland area and contour levels were shown for quick reference. All the work needed to be done keeping in mind the given inputs in Civil3D software.

Client Requirement

Client wanted us to prepare a Construction Document Set (A set of production drawings). Which will include a Site plan, Grading plan, Layout plan and the Existing site condition plan.

Challenges Observed

Since the project had some very strict standard guidelines and were high on deadlines, we built a team of members who already had expertise and experience in working on such projects. This made us save a huge amount of time on training hours. Also, a backup resources were deployed to accommodate any additional deliverables. Moreover, team had to be abreast with the US construction code and standards.

Indovance Solution Architect

We made all the sheet with the expected details that were required. A total of 3 main files and their multiple sub-files were created for the clarity in understanding and execution of work.

  1. Existing Condition – All existing conditions giving under the civil base plan. This includes all the natural and man-made features already present on-site such as contours, stream, pond, trees etc.
  2. Tree Clearance – Herein, all the unnecessary trees had to be cut to propose solar panels and show proper fence line for security purpose and Calculation of the area.
  3. Layout and Material – Proper site layout need to be done here, by calculating the site distances from all sides according to the standards mentioned and put all the callouts and utility poles wherever necessary.
  4. Grading and Erosion control – Propose contours if needed for a conducive environment. Place the electrical equipment area, utility poles and other solar panel details. Also, propose Stilt fencing for erosion control for not damaging the existing condition.

Also, Outsourcing CAD services to Indovance helped our partner in reducing the overall cost of project.

What and Why should you Outsource?

Do you feel that you need to scale up your workforce but cannot invest time training them? If this is a pain-point like many others, outsourcing a part of your business process to an outsourcing partner can help you big time. This will not shake the creative genius inside you and rather will fetch you more time to work on your core business strategies. Is this the only reason why you should outsource? Not really. There are many more significant contributions outsourcing can make and here are few listed down for you.

  • Innovation

Innovation is one thing that can help businesses sustain in market and who makes it possible? People! Your outsourcing business partner can be a boon for your business since, they know the minute details of the work and can innovate ways to achieve their business objectives.

  • Scalability & Flexibility

Scalability and Flexibility with work are important advantages that your outsourcing partner can provide if they have a right set up to support you. Businesses are uncertain, you never know when there is a sudden spike in work & you need more people working to complete the task, or when you need to shift from one technology to other to counter market challenges. Outsourcing partner can help you in both scenarios and give edge over your competitors.

  • Hiring & Administration

Let’s face it, hiring, training & retention are the major issues that many companies face. The complete process of recruitment, onboarding, engagement and retention is long and can add to your administrative expenses and above all the longevity of the employee can also be undefined. There have been many cases where the employees work for a few months and leave for other opportunities. When you think of outsourcing, these issues remain miles away because your partner takes the load of hiring and training employees for the skills you need, to make your work more impactful and powerful.

  • Leveraging Technical Expertise

‘Everyone is not being made for everything’ and same applies in business. You may be good at some technicalities of your business process, but someone who has core business to handle such technical aspects of your business can be an expert. Leveraging their technical expertise can help you save your time, money and give quality outputs.

  • Cost Benefits

You don’t have to hire or build a high-end infrastructure, because you are supposed to pay only for the services that you buy and not for the setup.
