NOMADD is an innovative device that was specifically designed to provide the best cleaning solution for all desert solar array applications.

The NOMADD is not a cleaning solution developed in mild conditions, naively transported to the MENA region. It is a system designed, developed and tested in Saudi Arabia for the harshest desert conditions.

NOMADD was founded in 2014 by Jos van der Hyden, Georg Eitelhuber, & Cliff Barrett. The company was developed at the King Abdullah University for Science and Technology, (KAUST) near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

NOMADD is a local solution, designed to suit local conditions, to solve a local problem. It is the answer for the MENA Desert Solar Challenge.

The NOMADD captures the spirit of the toughness and resilience of the desert nomadic peoples, who are perfectly adapted to the conditions, carrying exactly what they need and moving across the desert effectively over vast periods of time.


NOMADD has raised $1.3M in funding, backed by KAUST Innovation Fund, DSM Venturing, & CEPCO.
