Ioannou - Solar Pumps for Irrigation
From Solar Pumps
The need to irrigate agricultural land efficiently, economically and sustainably is critical. Costs for irrigation using diesel power are rising at >10 % per year. Solar water pumps are high efficiency pumps specifically designed to run from solar panels. Coupled with a suitable pumping maximiser or controller, they continue to pump in low light conditions such as cloud cover, early morning and late afternoons.
Solar irrigation solutions produce no emissions, generate no noise. Solar power for irrigation is more reliable than wind power while being significantly cheaper and cleaner than diesel power. Solar pumps complement the design of drip irrigation systems, delivering water precisely and efficiently to individual plants. Very high volumes of water for large scale irrigation can also be supported through a wide range of pump sizes and vertical lifts.
The helical rotor pump is simple, efficient and reliable, pumping water with very low levels of solar power from up to 450 m below the ground.
Each system consists of a pump, pump motor and a controller. This modular concept keeps all electronics above ground providing, simple servicing, ease of access and a low cost of ownership.
