Solar water pump provides safe drinking water for Liberian community

Posted 19th January 2010.

The Duport road clinic serves a very large community in a local Liberian town. This clinic operates 24 hours per day and 7 days per week with limited access to water. Residents used to seek drinking water from unhealthy sources: wells, covered and exposed, while others travel outside of the community to far locations for safer drinking water.

In association with a local charity foundation, Sollatek supplied a solar water pump system capable of pumping out 3.5 gallons of clean water per minute from a depth of 30 meters. Running 24 hours per day; thanks to a solar array of 4x80Wp and 4 solar batteries, the system is virtually maintenance free. The community now enjoys access to a regular flow of fresh drinking water, fuelled by the free and abundant power of the sun.
