Solar panel cleaner
The GEKKO Solar Farm was designed specifically to clean free-field solar power plants, and can clean entire panel rows in just one pass. Even at certain North American and Central European latitudes, efficiency increases of 10% to 20% can be achieved through regular cleaning of solar panels. With a standard speed of over 300 meters per hour and a maximum width of almost seven meters, the robot can clean over 2000 square meters per hour. Multiple process-controlled, non-slip rubber suction cups secure themselves to the panel and move the device forward. Thanks to its proven soft-brush technology, the ingenious cleaning system ensures panels are cleaned carefully and with optimal results. The GEKKO Solar Farm uses eco-friendly, de-mineralized water and excels due to its low water consumption of five liters per minute.
