Ecoppia signs an agreement with Solairedirect India to deploy its automated system in Jodhpur, Rajasthan

Solar Park

Ecoppia has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Solairedirect India, a subsidiary of ENGIE Group to deploy its automated system in the 10,000-hectare, 2,255 MW Bhadla Solar Park in Jodhpur, Rajasthan India.

The company’s solution will be deployed on a production capacity of 168MWp out of the total 190MWp capacity.

Ecoppia in a statement said that traditional labor-intensive, water-based panel cleaning solutions are neither cost-effective nor timely when immediate recovery from sandstorms is mission-critical to maintain LCOE.

 To alleviate the production loss associated with soiling and maintain panels at peak performance year-round, Engie’s site in Bhadla will be cleaned nightly by Ecoppia robots.

Ecoppia is the only solution able to maintain peak energy production and restore panels post-storm in just hours – without water or external electricity consumption said the company.

 With the deployment of Ecoppia across its site, ENGIE is expected to save over 1.5 billion of liters of water, and reduce its operating expenses drastically.

Ecoppia cooperated closely with ENGIE throughout the design and deployment process to maximize rollout efficiency and optimize return on investment.

We expect to harness Ecoppia’s revolutionary cleaning system to dramatically raise output and lower costs. This type of technological breakthrough not only benefits our own business interests, but the solar energy sector as a whole,” said Gaurav Sood, Managing Director of Solairedirect India. “We are proud to be one of the world’s first solar energy providers to adopt Ecoppia’s cutting-edge, autonomous robotic panel cleaning paradigm,” he added.
