The firm has obtained INR40,60,000 (US$ 56,000) from the New Brunswick Development Fund in Canada, taking its total quantity elevated to around US$ 275,000.

With orders aligned from programmers worldwide for 100MW of PV plants, Solavio is now seeking to scale its Indian manufacturing base with the production of 12,000 robot cleansing units by the end of the 2021-22 financial year.

Started by 2 engineers, Solavio Labs has actually developed a man-made intelligence-based completely dry cleaning remedy that it says works "with nearly any type of panel or weather problem".

The firm intends to supply an alternative to various other module cleaning approaches that can be work as well as water intensive, declaring its option "conserves more than 200,000 litres of water per megawatt per year".

Having actually secured orders from solar developers in India as well as Dubai, the business has actually experienced "incredible development" in the past year, according to co-founder Suraj Mohan. "We will remain to innovate modern technology and also play our component in reinforcing India's setting in the global map," he stated.

Solavio Labs just recently signed a memorandum of recognizing with the Dubai Power and Water Authority, which has seen the firm deploy its panel cleansing robotics at a 1.8 MW solar PV plant at the utility's head office.

The fundraising follows a recent going public by Israel-based robot solar cleansing provider Ecoppia in which the business protected US$ 82.5 million. In the UK, Clean Solar Solutions, which provides robot panel cleansing as well as other procedures as well as maintenance services, last month opened its 2nd office in the nation to reduce feedback time to clients.
