Hence, constant cleaning of solar panels is needed and at utility size plants manual cleaning is not viable and conventional floor cleaning systems are not tenable because of the unconventional nature of the solar power plant structures. Even more so in plants with tracker systems.
The need is for a cleaning system that can clean large array of solar panels, sometimes daily. In utility size plants the area to be cleaned can extend to many Square kilometers. Hence, the need for a cleaning solution, that can clean large areas in a relatively small time, with minimal CapEx cost and almost nil OpEx cost.
PVACS (PV Array Cleaning System) by Ingens is one such end-to-end solution, that is designed in consultation with industry experts and thought leaders in the solar power segment. All the typical constrains and pain points, that are unique to solar power plants were considered and a comprehensive solution has been built, that is ready to be deployed globally under different operating conditions.
