Sunpure to supply PV robotic cleaning solution for the world’s largest green hydrogen plant


China’s Sunpure has secured a major contract with Larsen & Toubro (L&T) to supply PV cleaning robots for the world’s largest utility-scale hydrogen plant powered entirely by renewable energy. The mega plant is located at Oxagon, in Saudi Arabia’s region of NEOM.

The NEOM Green Hydrogen Co. (NGHC)—a joint venture between ACWA Power, Air Products, and NEOM—will use renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power to produce up to 600 tonnes per day of carbon-free hydrogen by the end of 2026.

Larsen & Toubro was awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to construct a 2.2 GW AC solar PV plant, a 1.65 GW wind generation balance-of-plant, and a 400 MWh battery energy storage system under the power elements package. It will also construct three 380 kV switching stations and 306 km of 380 kV overhead lines required for the Kingdom’s Grid network.

Sunpure stated its PV cleaning solution combines water-free cleaning and module-friendly techniques with high cleaning efficiency. The solution is said to significantly reduce operational costs, alleviate O&M pressures, and lower the LCOE, ultimately enhancing the profitability of PV plants.
