With over 50K visitors, Intersolar Munich 2022 has been a powerful event, showcasing a wide range of innovative worldwide technologies. With COVID finally slowing down, it seems that everyone was excited to meet face to face and learn more about the latest trends in the Solar industry.
Ecoppia, the world’s leader in robotic cleaning solutions for photovoltaic solar, showcased at Intersolar its T4 and H4 robotic solutions – the latest models of the Ecoppia suite of products. For nearly a decade, Ecoppia offers a variety of robotic solutions that can be installed on fixed-tilt racking and single-axis trackers, optimizing energy production year-round. All Ecoppia robots are water-free, cleaning the panels by using soft microfiber cloth and controlled airflow to ensure no potential damage to the Anti Reflective Coating as often caused by the use of a brush. Cloud-based, the robots are completely autonomous operating with no human operators, or electricity – as the robots are solar-powered.
A glimpse into the future with the new Ecoppia H4
On the main stage, the newest model – Ecoppia H4 – was constantly impressing the visitors who walked by the Ecoppia booth. The H4 combines Ecoppia’s renowned safety capabilities alongside effective, swift, and intelligent cleaning, and is designed to cater to both fixed-tilt and single Axis Trackers installations. Utilizing patented Helix technology, the H4 channels dust, and dirt particles downwards without accumulating them as the robot moves horizontally while cleaning vertically. The robot can clean very long rows of up to 2 KM with minimal maintenance, making it an optimal solution for large-scale projects in remote locations.
T4, Strong and Steady
Ecoppia’s lightweight, smart T4 solution was a real showstopper at Intersolar. Designed especially for Single Axis trackers, the T4 travels on the modules when the tracker is at a flat position, using multiple advanced sensors to navigate its way in a pre-defined optimized route. The robot can clean any type of structure or module, including frameless modules.
At Intersolar, visitors could see the T4 trave on stage and witness its completely autonomous operation. The environmentally friendly robots keep solar modules clean and functioning at peak productivity while saving millions of gallons of water, providing a truly sustainable approach to the operation and maintenance of solar modules.
“As market leaders, we take upon ourselves the responsibility to our clients and shareholders to maintain the highest standards, constantly raising the bar higher towards excellence,” said Jean Scemama, CEO of Ecoppia. “Ecoppia’s versatile solution portfolio will continue to provide worldwide energy players the key for scalability, sustainability, and attractive ROI”.
With over 16GW of agreements, Ecoppia is a pioneer and world leader in robotic solutions for photovoltaic solar. Ecoppia’s cloud-based, water-free, autonomous robotic solutions remove soil from solar panels daily, leveraging sophisticated technology and
advanced Business Intelligence capabilities. Remotely managed and controlled, the Ecoppia platform allows solar sites to maintain peak performance with minimal costs and human intervention. Ecoppia’s proprietary algorithms and robotic solutions make day-to-day O&M at solar sites safer, more efficient, and more reliable. Publicly held and backed by prominent international investment funds, Ecoppia works with the largest energy companies across the globe, cleaning millions of solar panels every night.
