SOLAR WASH PROTECT IS A PRODUCT TO WASH AND PROTECT THE SOLAR PANELS
Solar Wash Protect - It has two functions: first washing the panels helping to remove dirt easily, the second repelling the dirt, with this effect the panel will produce more energy for a longer time.
Born in February 2018, Chemitek is a company dedicated to developing and commercializing customized solutions for industrial maintenance.
Its products ‘Solar Wash Protect’, ‘Industrial Glass Protect’ and ‘Surface Protect’ - are three examples of innovative products created by this company that satisfy specific maintenance needs for the solar panel industry. However, it is important to note Chemitek’s portfolio diversity, presenting several innovative solutions for industrial purposes in several sectors, namely automotive, naval, aeronautics and waste treatment. Chemitek positions itself as a company dedicated to developing and commercialising innovative solutions destined to satisfy specific cleaning and maintenance needs of several industrial sectors.
Energy production created through a solar photovoltaic module depends mostly on the radiance that is received by photovoltaic cells, which compose the photovoltaic modules (which in turn compose a solar panel). However, the level of radiance is affected by many factors, including accumulation of dirt, dust, moss and other particles. Quantifying the impact of this particular factor on the overall performance, it is known that the production of photovoltaic solar panels that are not properly cleaned may decrease until 50% to 86%. It becomes clear that solar panel maintenance is one critical factor to maintain this renewable energy source’s output quality.
The new investments in solar panels will be on offshore platforms.
According to Zion Market Research, the global solar panel market is expected to reach €50 billion 2022, growing at a CAGR of 10,9% between 2017 and 2022. In another perspective, the World Economic Forum states that the world will add 70 thousand solar panels every hour between 2018 and 2022. Aligned with this perspective, the International Energy Agency expects world solar PV cumulative capacity to triple to 880 GW by the end of the five year period, mostly explained by China’s solar expansion, but also by possible policy and regulatory improvements in India, Japan and the US.

Investment is increasing in renewable energies, which are needed to save our planet. With these products we were able to maintain the panels with maximum production, protecting the panels from dirt and maintenance costs with boats that polluting the environment and making production more expensive.
With these solutions we are at an even more green energy production, which contributes to higher yield of the panels and in turn save the planet.
