2.2Kw Solar AC powered Borehole pump upgrade

Location: Hatclife, Harare Zimbabwe

Client: Hatclife Gardens co-operative

Solar Array: 2.6Kw

Pumpin Inverter Power: 2.2Kw Single phase AC – 3Hp

Installed Pump: 1.5Hp borehole Terrier pump

Operational Parameters: The clients, a gardening co-operative had the pump installed several years ago by an international NGO, until it failed.

We then installed a Terrier submersible pump and a PVInergy solar water pumping inverter to deliver AC power to the pump. We also installed a bypass supply source that will allow for the occasional use of a generator should the pump need to be run at night for example.
