With a focus on the development of green energy, Invenergy’s North American assets include 65 wind farms and several solar, battery and natural gas projects. Housed in the company’s Chicago headquarters, the Invenergy Control Center (ICC) helps Invenergy control and monitor its power generation and storage facilities. In addition to monitoring facilities, the ICC is also a communications hub for the company.
“Communication is extremely vital to the effective operation of the Invenergy fleet,” says Brad Purtell, Director of Operations Support at Invenergy. “Control room personnel are responsible for having a very high level of attention to detail. Their ability to monitor certain indications surrounding projects is vital for the timely response to an emergency as well as trouble shooting issues remotely.”
