Survey Digital has a significant heads-up on photovoltaic inverters expertise than any other technical company in the market, as it has always focused on “inverter troubleshooting”, rather than “inverter installations”. Because of that fact, Survey Digital is already selected by 8 major inverter manufacturers (Sungrow-China, Satcon/Greatwall-China, Power-One-USA, ABB-Greece, Fronius-Austria, Bonfiglioli-Italy, Santerno-Italy, SMA-Germany) to act as a local service provider for hotline, preventive and corrective maintenance services and procurement of systems and spare parts in the EMEA region. In addition, Survey Digital is selected to provide technical support for Also Energy and Skytron systems in EMEA, the top SCADA/monitoring company in the world.
Survey Digital financials are proven viable and sustainable over the years. The company has zero debt, a rich infrastructure and a profitable business plan. As a result, Survey Digital has been approved by Alpha Bank Greece for financing for its operations in September 2014, proven bankable.
Survey Digital is selected by major IPPs, EPC and O&M companies to work with in the region of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
Who Is Survey Digital
In early 2009, Survey Digital entered the market of advanced power electronics, acting as Satcon’s authorized distributor for Greece, Bulgaria and Cyprus. The company originally was re-selling photovoltaic inverters but was evolved later as a photovoltaic developer and named SDL Solar LLC, focusing in the markets of Greece, Bulgaria, Italy and the USA. Through the development of a project and its sale to an investor with financing, the company was securing the sale of PV systems as well. But in order to convince a customer to accept the purchase of a PV system, a local after sales technical support mechanism had to be in place. So back then, the company financed and instituted a technical team to commission and technically support the systems sold to the investors/owners of the photovoltaic projects. These service engineers received training on central inverter troubleshooting in 2009 and today they consist one of the greatest teams available for inverter manufacturers and act as their service mechanism in the EMEA region.
After 2015, Survey Digital started providing construction and commissioning services for a projects in Africa and the Middle East, installing successfully a portfolio of hybrid PV projects in Mauritania, Lebanon and Eritrea.
Lastly, after 2017 Survey Digital developed a portfolio of more than 100MW in Lebanon and Greece.

- Development of photovoltaic projects
- EPC for photovoltaic projects/Construction oversee and project management
- Operation & Maintenance of utility scale photovoltaic systems
