In light of the new climate-change economics, solar fields grow larger in volume and size, and maintenance is becoming cost-prohibitive while technologies are lagging behind. Today, solar plants are losing billions in production losses and OPEX caused by inefficient maintenance practices using outdated technologies while parallel industries s.e agriculture and warehouse logistics are adopting automation.
Soltrex accelerates the global growth of solar power with artificially-intelligent logistics robots. By removing the human factor from the increasingly expensive maintenance operations, we allow lower TCO, higher profits for plant owners, and more clean power for humanity.
Founded by automation engineers, Soltrex aims to disrupt the booming solar PV industry and envisions a fully automated solar farm for maximum performance, at minimum financial risks.
Based on an unmanned ground vehicle with off-the-shelf components, Soltrex develops automation algorithms and software, turning it into a RaaS platform to tackle the various repetitive and routine tasks from construction to operation and maintenance. For a fully automated PV plant, Soltrex develops a complementary asset management software tool that enables performance-driven decision-making and resource management.
The technology was evaluated and challenged by both a robotic expert from MIT and technology evaluators at the Israel Innovation Authority, there is a design partnership with leading incumbents, and there are already discussions with prospects.
