Ecoppia, an Israel-based company, has announced that it has been selected to supply robotic cleaning solutions for with Sprng Energy’s 150 MW solar project. The said solar project is located in Ananthapuram in Andhra Pradesh and these Ecoppia robots will be deployed in the second quarter of 2022.
One of the global leaders in module cleaning technology, Israel-based Ecoppia offers robotic solutions with completely water-free technology that can reportedly remove 99 per cent of soiling on a nightly basis. These robots are energy independent with their own onboard dedicated solar modules that can charge the robot batteries when idle. Further, these robots can clean their onboard solar panels and microfibre elements on their own. Moreover, these robotic solutions are available for fixed tilt as well as single-axis tracker solar installations. The AI-enabled and data-driven robots are connected with Ecoppia’s networks for remote monitoring purposes.
In September 2020, Ecoppia weighed an initial public offering (IPO) on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange at a company valuation that could reach as much as $500 million. The IPO would value the company at three times the value it last raised money privately less than two months ago, when it sold a 30 per cent interest to the US company CIM Group for $40 million.
