Pumping water at remote locations can be difficult without access to mains electricity. There are probably only three ways, apart from carrying the water in containers. Firstly, hand pumps. But these can only transfer water from fairly shallow depths and they require manual labour.
Secondly, using an electric pump connected to a generator. However, this is expensive in fuel costs and environmentally unfriendly. Finally, there are the solar water pumps. They require no manual intervention, are environmentally friendly and are simple and easy to install.
SCL Water has been involved in the sale and installation of Grundfos solar water pumps for over 15 years and we have many examples, particularly in Africa, where these pumps have helped communities to become healthier and more productive.
A solar water pump can be installed on the surface next to a well, spring or river. Solar water pumps can also be installed at depth in a borehole intercepting an underground aquifer. Both types of solar pumps are powered by solar panels that produce the energy to drive the motors.
In addition, with solar water pumps there are no ongoing running costs and there are multiple uses.
Our customers require solar water pumps, be it in the UK or abroad, that are reliable, easy to install and where an excellent support infrastructure exists.
Accordingly, SCL Water became distributors and the UK specialist in the Grundfos solar water pump market in order to deliver on our customer’s key requirements.
SCL Water Ltd is the primary UK supplier of the Grundfos solar water pumping systems. Including the UK we have now sold the Solar powered SQF, CRF and RSi solutions into over 40 countries with the African continent being our largest market.
