Solar panel cleaning robot - Product specification
Cleaning robot for solar- and photovoltaic installations:
hyCLEANER® SOLAR facelift – clean solar and photovoltaic panels ensure optimum performance!
Solar and photovoltaic plants are symbols of clean energy generation. In order to achieve the optimum efficiency as well as the calculated service life of the plant, the solar panels have to be clean. Permanent soiling caused by environmental influences, dust, flower pollen, mosses etc. reduces the solar performance and efficiency. In the case of agricultural farms and livestock farming, ammonia gases lead to an additionally increased degree of soiling (heavy soiling may reduce profits by 20 – 30 %). Even smallest contaminations caused by bird droppings, mosses, lichens etc. may – due to the series connection of modules – reduce the performance and efficiency of the complete plant, as the weakest module determines the total output. However, it is not only the financial loss, which gives reason to concern! Soiling can attack panels’ coatings and seals. Incoming water then causes damages to the complete system. The solar and photovoltaic plants become susceptible to faults and failure.
Cleaning of solar panel surfaces has never been so easy.
So far, cleaning of solar and photovoltaic surfaces caused major difficulties to many solar plant operators. hyCLEANER® SOLAR facelift cleaning robot allows an easy, fast and economic cleaning. Due to the high mechanical performance, an optimum cleaning result can be achieved with only low water consumption. The solar panel cleaning system is controlled via radio-remote-control and allows the operator to achieve an optimum cleaning result without any physical efforts. Moreover, the operator no longer needs to step onto the sensitive roof and solar surfaces. The photovoltaic cleaning system is powered by lithium-ion-batteries and does not require any external power source close to the working area.
