Solar PV cleaning firm Clean Solar Solutions (CSS) has expanded into Ireland, positioning itself for an expected boom in solar installations.

The firm has opened a new office north of Dublin with MD Steve Williams claiming the move to follow the island of Ireland becoming a market “in the minds of many solar installers at the moment”.

CSS itself noted that it had seen a “sizeable” increase in enquiries for the company’s services from Ireland.

“O&M contracts are already being drawn up for solar farms that are waiting to be built and the rooftop installation market is already starting to gather traction.

“The lack of an expert solar panel cleaning company in Ireland hopefully means we can help shape the cleaning landscape there. Our focus is not cleaning only. We look forward to offering the full spectrum of our O&M services across the whole of Ireland,” Williams said, adding that other international opportunities are too being explored.

Last year the firm opened its first office overseas in Australia.
