WE collaborative projects: SEPS Wind water pumping systems exchange

Argentina-India: Wind water pumping systems exchange


This project seeks to solve one of the main problems of rural areas worldwide: access to water, both for human consumption and for productive activities.

The WISIONS-funded project, initiated in 2018, engages WE member organisations ACE, 500RPM, MinVayu and School of the Earth. It proposes the development of a water pumping system using wind energy without using batteries, which would represent an important contribution to the rural world.

During 2019, the SEPS project advanced in 3 lines: a) electronic system, b) data logger, c) wind turbine.

In the first line, 3 different systems were tested; the last one chosen will be completed in February 2020.

In the second line, a data logger was installed: remember that this is a pilot project and the collection of system data is essential. In February, it will be installed at another site -next to the new electronic system- at the 500RPM Test Center in Buenos Aires.

Regarding the last line of work, in December 2019, manufacturing was completed and the Piggott wind turbine was installed in the INTA Esquel Demonstration Unit (Argentina).
