Israeli PV panel cleaning specialist Airtouch Solar announced it has signed a $2.5 million deal with Adani Green Energy Ltd, the renewable energy arm of the diversified Adani Group. Under the agreement, Airtouch Solar will supply and install the latest version of its water-free panel cleaning robots, AT 4.0, in AGEL’s solar field in the Indian state of Rajasthan.
The cleaning robot installation is expected to complete by March 2024.
AGEL has an operational renewable portfolio of 8,086 MW—the largest in India. Most of this portfolio is solar.
“The said order is within the framework of a Master Supply Agreement signed by Airtouch and AGEL. This agreement regulates the relationship between the parties in general and under which the Adani Group will be able to place additional orders for Airtouch systems from time to time, with the specific terms of each order, including the quantity of systems ordered, the delivery schedules, and their price, to be determined individually within each order,” stated Airtouch Solar.
Airtouch operates two production centers – in Israel and India. The company operates, manufactures, and sells its products and services in Israel and India and is exploring new markets, mainly the US.
To date, Airtouch has signed cleaning robot agreements for over 4.4 GW of solar capacity, out of which over 2.8 GW have already been installed.
Tal Laufer, CEO of Airtouch Solar Group, termed the strategic agreement with AGEL a significant milestone in expanding their operations. “The collaboration with AGEL has the potential to expand on a significant scale in India and abroad. This transaction is yet another layer in strengthening Adani Group’s relationship with Israeli technology companies. With the signing of this agreement, Airtouch continues to solidify its position as a leading robotic cleaning company in the solar industry,” he said.
Nick Lanir Brown, chief business officer, added that the agreement with Adani Group was signed following long and meticulous negotiations conducted by both parties over a period of time. The Adani Group has a massive portfolio in the solar sector, and as part of the agreement signed, AGEL will be able to place further orders from time to time.
