Solar powered submersible pump delivers 100 m3/day to Eritrean community

By Waterworld

A farming community in Africa is now able to irrigate its crops on a reliable year-round basis, thanks to a solar pumping solution from NOV Mono.

The Sun-Sub™ submersible pump system is located on the banks of the Mereb River in Eritrea, where the community now has greatly improved access to water.

Working with the team at Visual Direct International the Mono™ Sun-Sub pumping system was fitted with a stationary array.

This enables it to draw some 100 m3/day from the 7.3m deep well, and pump it over 228 metres to a concrete surface reservoir.

This can hold up to four days supply, ensuring that the farmers always have water to irrigate their citrus trees. The Sun-Sub can operate at speeds of 1800-2400 rpm, and is powered by 2,400W of solar panels.

The Sun-Sub submersible pump is available with either a stationary or GPS tracking array, and with power options ranging from 150 Watts up to 2400 Watts.

All Sun-Sub systems are supplied complete with pre-wired solar modules, array frames, pump element, submersible motor and solar motor controller.

“Severe shortages of diesel, and very high prices, mean that conventional pumps are often not an option for irrigation water duties in places like Eritrea,” says Mono’s Maurice Calderon.

  3. Stay on course Deki Ere, here are your people building a nation brick by brick. The year 2014 was a year to remember and the year 2015 to be another success story of Eritrea.

    It is OK if the "toothless barking dogs, from corner of Broadway and 18th Street (EDAGA ENUDAT), bark. After all, it is when Eritrea is shining brighter for all to see and so do the desperados bark louder.

  4. Thanks for your informative posting. Give more and tell me more; you sure make my day!

  5. "Hiji grem Helmey semiruley"! Dams every where, reservoirs every where, diversion channels every where, irrigation wells every where, drinking water supply wells and pumping stations every where, erosion control check dams and ponds every where and what does that translate into. It translates to "food security" at its highest. It means no need to beg for handouts and alms in the form of 'donated wheat". It mean hunger is a thing of the past in Eritrea. It means liberty and sovereignty of Eritrea defined as its best.

    As a result, at every village or hamlet, Eritreans are producing crops, fruits, and vegetables three times a year. That is what SHAEBIA meant when they talk about FOOD SECURITY (WUHSINET MEGHEBI). And that is building Eritrea brick by brick, the SHAEBIA way meant.

    Eritreans to beg? No,,,No,,,,begging is a "taboo" (NEWRI) in the Eritrean society,
