Solar Pumps in Developing Countries
The Grundfos SQ Flex solar powered water pump systems have also been installed in very remote third-world countries for the primary water supply for villages that have no access to electricity. In such remote locations as Southern China, Tibet, Sierra Leone and throughout West Africa, these solar pumping systems have proven to be portable, easy to set up and very reliable with minimal maintenance.
In these remote poverty-stricken areas of the world, residents typically use a bucket and rope system to retrieve their daily water needs. With Grundfos solar pump systems installed, these wells can be sealed at the surface. The pump can then deliver water to a storage tank, almost eliminating water-borne pathogens and increasing the quality of life for the village, while utilizing renewable energy as the primary power supply.
