O&M equipment for solar parks from a single source

SunBrush® mobil and AVANT SA establish sales office in South Africa

Lachen, Germany, September 13, 2021. With immediate effect, solar park operators and operation and maintenance companies from South Africa and Namibia can purchase SunBrush® mobil cleaning equipment made in Lachen, Germany, with the matching loader vehicles from AVANT. For this purpose, the expert for solar cleaning equipment has opened a joint service and sales location in Western Cape with the South African AVANT-sales partner AVANT SA.

Servicing solar parks quickly and easily

The loaders from AVANT can be used flexibly as they are compatible with over 200 attachments, including lawn mowers or machines for removing weeds. SunBrush cleaning systems are also quick and easy to fit to the multifunction vehicles. “Solar park employees can thus maintain the entire solar park with just one loader vehicle. This not only saves them costs, but also time,” explains Oliver Köster, Sales Manager at SunBrush® mobil.

If another loader vehicle is already available, customers can also buy the cleaning equipment individually. Currently, SunBrush® mobil and AVANT SA are building a spare parts warehouse so that trained personnel can maintain and repair the SunBrush machines on site.

“We are very excited and honoured with new partnership between AVANT South Africa and SunBrush Germany. We have been importing only quality equipment from Europe since 2007 and the SunBrush is a very popular addition to the AVANT range of attachments. AVANT SA will be distributing the complete range of SunBrush equipment in South Africa and neighbouring countries. Prospective and existing customers can expect only the best service possible – something that we are known for in the industry,” explains Wally Loftie-Eaton, Managing Director of AVANT South Africa.

Several cleaning units of the SunBrush® mobil Compact model are already being used in South African solar parks. “The photovoltaic market in South Africa is growing rapidly. Together with our powerful partner, we want to exploit this potential,” says Köster. AVANT SA has been one of the largest AVANT distributors for about 15 years. The company has further branches in the South African cities of Durban and Gauteng.
