POLAND Esoleo embraces AI for solar farm

Technology
US company AI Clearing is to provide its fully automated construction progress tracking solution for Esoleo, which is building Poland’s largest solar farm on the site of a former brown coal mine in Brudzew in central Poland.

Under the agreement with photovoltaic installations specialist Esoleo, the company, which has worked on solar farms in the US and Canada, will monitor the construction of the 70 MWp solar farm, which is being built on a 100 ha site reclaimed from the former Adamów strip mine close to Brudzew.

AI Clearing’s system uses artificial intelligence to compare data supplied by drones with project documentation from CAD/BIM designs. This allows the managers of large infrastructure projects, such as solar farms, roads or pipelines, to monitor the progress of the work almost in real time and to assess its compliance with the design and schedule. This involves tracking such metrics as the completion of piles, racks, modules, trenches and roads. The project is scheduled to be completed in August.

Building a solar farm over such a large area is a huge organisational challenge. AI Clearing’s technology allows us to use the data we collect faster and better, and to monitor the pace of work.
Esoleo’s project director, Mirosław Sołtysiak

AI Clearing’s system is already used by such global construction companies as PCL Construction and Vinci Group. The Austin-based start-up, which has an R&D centre in Warsaw, raised USD 2 mln in seed funding in December 2020.
