Clean Solar Solutions have completed the solar panel cleaning at Bournemouth Airport Solar Farm. The 37.3MW solar farm houses over 149,000 solar panels. This is spread across 48.5 hectares of the Dorset countryside.
Clean Solar Solutions were chosen by O&M provider Silverstone Green Energy to carry out the cleaning. This was based on our experience and our ability to deliver on projects of scale. Impressed with the progress made on the Bournemouth site, Silverstone assigned the cleaning of another site to us also.
Our Solar Panel Cleaning Infrastructure
We were able to clean not just this solar farm, but 6 others simultaneously.
Speaking of the infrastructure of Clean Solar Solutions, M.D. Steve Williams comments “We have reach all over the UK and have teams that we can deploy team simultaneously at short notice in multiple locations across the UK. This allows us to offer both a preventative service and a reactive service to our clients.
“We advise all to plan the solar panel cleaning well in advance. But should a system need cleaning urgently, we can respond with speed and efficiency. This kind of speedy, high quality service is what the industry requires.”

The solar farm next to Bournemouth Airport is believed to be the largest site cleaned manually in the UK to date. This proves that annual cleaning is a viable, cost effective solution for solar panel cleaning, even on large solar farms. Some solar panel cleaning machines are running into warranty and insurance issues, but with manual cleaning, there are no such concerns.
Clean Solar Solutions expected to clean 100MW of solar panels during 2016. However, by the end of May, we will have completed the cleaning of 125MW. Now that the solar industry realises the positive impact that solar panel cleaning can have, the sites continue to come in thick and fast.
