Exosun, a supplier of advanced, cost-effective solar tracking solutions for ground-mounted PV plants, sent word of two new initiatives designed to optimize the LCOE of a PV project.
ExoDesigner: Software to speed up plant design
ExoDesigner is a free of charge, easy-to-install AutoCAD add-on application that enables engineering teams to design the layout of PV plants harvesting the best Exosun’s trackers technology. This time-saving tool is incorporated into the existing AutoCAD, enabling users to continue working on their existing plant layouts or create new ones. Only a few minutes are needed to draw a power plant, test and compare multiple tracker configurations, and then reduce significantly the project engineering time and costs.
To ensure PV production stays at its best, the equation of soiling vs. cleaning frequency and costs needs to be managed. That’s why; Exosun has developed a revolutionary water-free modules cleaning solution that dramatically reduces cleaning cost versus solutions using maintenance vehicles and water. The Exosun’s cleaning robot offers a desert proof, scalable and plug & play solution for an effortless and fast modules cleaning.
This cost-effective solution, avoids acquisition and transportation of expensive distilled water in remote locations, with a cleaning rate up to 5 MWp cleaned in 8 hours by 2 operators.
