A solar-powered pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic panels or the radiated thermal energy available from collected sunlight as opposed to grid electricity or diesel run water pumps. The operation of solar powered pumps is more economical mainly due to the lower operation and maintenance costs and has less environmental impact than pumps powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE). Solar pumps are useful where grid electricity is unavailable and alternative sources (in particular wind) do not provide sufficient energy. A photovoltaic solar powered pump system has three parts: • Solar panels. • the controller • the pump The solar panels [...]

It’s amazing how a relatively small investment to get a pump can make such a positive change in so many lives. With a water pump, you can move water over long distances at the desired flow rate and head. Engine water pumps are portable, affordable and easy to maintain. They are suitable for water pumping needs in rural areas without electricity, irrigation, dewatering and general pumping duties. They have a maximum suction lift of 7m at sea level and can push water as far as 2km’s.
Today, we all know that water is a resource that must be managed. The agricultural market is changing rapidly, and farmers cannot rely on the technology and practices of the past.This week we installed a Mechanized sprinkler system effective for covering 11.5acres in Busunju (along Hoima road) at Nicholas’s farm. This system basically involves typically pipes attached to a pump that can supply the necessary amount of water, pressure and significantly more, as a precaution. Valves handle the excess flow and pressure.
