Sand and dust accumulated on PV modules have an important impact on energy losses. PVH faced the problem and did not accept to lose part of the energy production of its solar trackers. Therefore, it has developed different automatic cleaning solution with up to 3 hours of autonomy, which drastically reduces the necessary personnel. These cleaning robots are called PV Cleaner and can jump between rows of trackers that are up to 60 centimeters away.
Certified by PI-Berlin and module manufacturers, tested in real conditions with all types of modules, causing no damage to any of them, nor even frameless. PVH has verified that in the solar plants where the PV Cleaner robot currently works and production has been improved by 5 percent. PVH’s PV Cleaners have been designed for Axone (PV Cleaner 1V) and Monoline 3H and 2V.
