24/7 Control Centre
In 2007, Norvento launched its own Generation Control Centre, the Norvento CCG, which since 2008 has been accredited by Spain’s national electricity grid: Red Eléctrica de España (REE) in accordance with Royal Decree 661/2007.
With our 365/24 Control Centre, we also offer monitoring and control services of any installation according to customer requirements. Our technical team has extensive experience in wind, solar and hydroelectric installations.
Our services as a Control Centre include:

From the Norvento Control Centre our operators interact in real time, 24 hours a day 365 days a year, with installations, operating and maintenance equipment, the Electric Network Dispatch Centre of Spain and electrical distribution companies.
