Oracle Smart Construction Platform for renewable energy projects

Renewable energy makes the best use of the resources we have, such as the sun and wind. We can apply that same principle to how we build renewables projects and operate them throughout their lives.

We want to make the best use of our resources, including funding, labor, materials, and equipment. Just like it takes know-how and technology to harness energy from the sun and wind, we need proven technology to optimize resources on the projects themselves.

One single data repository for the project to create a full project record

Cross-organization team collaboration

Renewables projects are complex, involve specialized expertise, and require multiple organizations to collaborate. Having all parties in lockstep across project phases and disciplines while managing thousands of pieces of information reduces miscommunication, rework, and delays, enabling project success.


    SouthCoast Wind sped the permitting process across more than 1,000 workflow by 60%.

Cross-entity permitting process

Permits are often needed across federal and local jurisdictions, multiple municipalities, and even into international waters. By using the Packages capabilities in Oracle Aconex, the permit process can be broken down into manageable chunks.


    Interoperable schedules and work packages

    Needs package details

    Need activity dates

  • Project management

    • Direct access to the live schedule
    • Package deliverables link to schedule activities


    • Package includes the current due date
    • Schedule updates based on package status

Interoperable schedules and work packages

The integration between Oracle Aconex and Oracle Primavera Cloud Schedule ties the permitting deliverables to your schedule. Track date changes and see if there’s a variance between plan and actual throughout the permitting process.

Use the schedule integrated risk functionality to assign and quantify risk related to various permitting steps, enabling more visibility into the likelihood of planned approvals and the ability to release assigned contingencies as risk windows pass.


Workflow tracking

In one consolidated view, you can keep track of all your workflows, including durations, due dates, what’s been approved, what’s due soon, what’s overdue, and whose court it’s in.


SouthCoast Wind cut bid set up time in half.

Bid management

Because of the specialized nature of renewables projects, the number of bids and complexity of the bid documents are significant. Easily prepare complete packages, set up bidders, answer requests for information from bidders, and distribute and amend bid requests, ensuring consistency and fairness throughout the process.

Information management

Project information management

Managing the volume of documentation and review and approval flows across all parties through a renewables project isn’t easy. Having all parties work in a central project system, in which each organization has secure access to their own individual workspaces, improves information management and collaboration and supports the creation of a full project record.

Information management

SouthCoast Wind document reviews are completed 66% faster than their contractual obligation.

One connected data repository for the entire project

  • A single holistic source of project information.
  • All project organizations own and control their data.
  • Nothing can be deleted or altered once submitted.
  • Industry leading security.

One connected data repository

Because organizations own and control their own data and have their own secure space, they don’t have to maintain both their own system and a project system. The single projectwide system increases accuracy and decreases cost. Ease of sharing within the system improves information flow, which decreases requests for information, miscommunication, errors, and rework and supports a full project record, crucial to the many years of operating the renewables asset.
