Water is the basic need of life. Water finds lots of application from quenching our thirst to grow our foods. In rural areas where the source of surface water is scarce or far away , solar energy can be used to pump water and then supplied for drinking and irrigation. Solar PV Water supply system has been implemented by Suryodaya Urja in number of rural villages of Nepal.

Suryodaya Urja is one of the pioneer solar photovoltaic company for the design, supply, installation and commissionning of Solar PV Pumping System in Nepal. Suryodaya Urja is a pre-qualified company by AEPC for manufacturing, distribution, installation, and after sales service of PV pumping System. (PVPS).

In many places of Nepal, especially in Rural Places where water is scarce, the locals have to walk hours to fetch water. Since the village or human settlements are situated at much higher places than the water sources fetching a water is always a great problem. The unavailability of Grid Supply make the situation even worse.

In such case we construct a water collection tank near the water resources where the running water from its source/spring is collected and the another water tank is constructed near the village with required head(height needed). Then we use a high efficiency solar DC water pumps to pump up the water from the collection tank near the water source to the water tank situated at the village. Then the water collected at these tanks are distributed through normal pipelines. The only power available at many of these remote sites is a Solar Power. So we use an array of Solar Photovoltaic modules to pump the water from the water source to the village situated at great heights. During day time when sun rises the  Solar PV modules generates an energy which runs the pump and the water is pumped up from the souce to the village , at night time the pumps stops automatically and the water is collected the whole night at the collection tank.

 

Suryodaya Urja is using a Grundfos Solar Water Pump for this purpose. Suryodaya Urja P. Ltd is also an authorized distributor and an authorized service partner for Grundfos (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. For more details about Grundfos pump please refer the solar pumps at product tab in our website.
