Clean Solar Solutions Ltd have completed the cleaning of 34MW of solar panels on two adjacent solar farms near Wellingborough for German solar giant SMA. SMA were keen to award the cleaning to us due to our previous experience of cleaning solar farms and our excellent health & safety record.
Steve Williams, M.D. Of Clean Solar Solutions Ltd comments “We were contacted by SMA who needed a reliable solar panel cleaning contractor here in the UK. We have fulfilled our remit on time and SMA have already booked us to clean the sites for 2017.”
The Glebe and Odell solar farms were commissioned and built by German solar developer Bejulo and the O&M is controlled by SMA. The Wellingborough solar farms combined have a total of over 110,000 solar panels. All of the solar panels were cleaned in less than two weeks.
From previous experience of building solar farms, Bejulo saw fit to incorporate access roads into their initial site plans. These roads provide good access around the sites and make the lives of O&M contractors much easier. However, due to the remote location of these solar farms, there was no water source on site.
“Cleaning 110,000 solar panels with no water source on site is not an easy challenge. Once again we lived up the name of our company and found a solution that was both practical for us and cost effective for SMA.”
Williams concludes “This site makes up part of a cleaning run which will see us clean over 145MW of sites in 10 weeks. We have hit our stride nicely as we continue to prove ourselves to be the choice of O&M companies both here and abroad.”
