Nick Lanir Brown, CEO, Airtouch Solar said “we thank ReNew Power for choosing Airtouch Solar as the preferred system for cleaning solar panels. We trust it is the beginning of successful long-term cooperation between the companies.”

The robotic cleaning systems for ReNew’s solar plants will be supplied from Airtouch’s production plant in Israel and the company’s manufacturing plant in India that is currently being established.

Sanjay Varghese, President, Solar, ReNew Power said “the adoption of robotic waterless cleaning systems for solar panels, by ReNew Power, will not only help in conserving water but will also bring greater efficiency in the cleaning of solar panels. The new system will service ReNew’s solar plants in Rajasthan.”

The company said that the IPO was led by Poalim IBI Underwriters, the law firm of Goldfarb Seligman and its accounting firm was BDO.
