Avaada Group has signed a long-term contract with Israel-based Airtouch Solar for the maintenance of its solar modules using robotic cleaning solutions. The agreement has been executed for a period of 25 years. It includes the supply, erection, testing, commissioning, operation, and maintenance of Airtouch robotic cleaning systems at Avaada solar farms.
As part of this agreement, Airtouch will be using its robotic solutions to dry clean the solar modules at its Bhadla plant in Rajasthan and at Pangaon and Damangaon in Maharashtra. Airtouch will supply and install robots for an amount worth $0.6 million in several mutually agreed milestones of these projects. In addition to this, Airtouch shall also provide comprehensive annual maintenance for 25 years for an amount of $1.4 million.
