Our Journey

Living and breathing renewable energy
June 30, 2000

Rooted in renewable energy

The founders of Sennen (Paul and Gaby) have worked in renewable energy projects all their working lives. They found that the teams they worked with were constantly fire-fighting and unable to take a structured approach to their business processes. Growing ever more frustrated with repetitive tasks and poor-quality software tools, they joined forces and began creating something new.

Creating the solution to the problem

The vision was to create a flexible, high-performance software system specifically adapted for managing renewable energy assets. It was clear from the outset that the system must be able to handle real-time data as well as provide applications that would save time and improve output.

Launching Sennen

Sennen’s first client was London Array – the largest offshore wind farm in the world at this time since 2016. They were struggling to integrate data into their operations process and seeing no suitable product on the market, they appointed Paul Grimshaw (CTO at Sennen) to help procure a solution that would meet their needs. Sennen developed a system that could integrate tidal information, bathymetry and vessel data to help wind farm planners decide where to send their vessels. This solution proved to have an immediate impact on their productivity.

Our Solutions

Grid

Offshore Wind

Sennen has created a unique platform to enable simpler, safer control and management of daily operations. The Sennen system centralises all data and activity in one place, making it accessible from anywhere. It optimises work planning and automates safety checks, so the control room can take informed decisions instantly and respond to unexpected events.

Infrastructure Funds

Reporting and information demands are growing year on year for investment fund managers. With Sennen, the burden of data collection and reporting is relieved with our simplified infrastructure fund management tool. Sennen was created by a team who understands the challenge of managing multiple funds working across many technologies, geographies and investment types.

Downtime Analysis

Unlike other downtime analysis tools heavily reliant on algorithms and excessive cross referencing with different systems, Sennen puts people first. Operators can draw on the knowledge of their entire team to enhance their understanding of the causes of turbine downtime. With Sennen, you can enrich, refine and enhance the raw data used to create datasets.
