PV Irrigation System for Omani Farmers
The falaj is a traditional system for directing underground water to the surface by gravity. It has been used for domestic water supply and irrigation in Oman for centuries. Traditional irrigation is via channels and surface flooding. The objective of this pilot project is to collect one farmer’s share of water in a 50m3 ground reservoir and use solar energy and modern irrigation methods to irrigate an area of 0.3 hectare on a daily basis. The 1.5 kW solar generator serves a 1,3kW Grundfos-SQflex-pump. Mayor benefits include are improved irrigation efficiency, improved crop yields and reduced labour. The project planning, installation and implementation was a joint approach of the NGO Earthwatch, Omani authorities and Phaesun Middle East. Please find pictures of the installation and the PV irrigation system on our Facebook-page here.

Distribution partnership with SolarWorld for Phaesun-Partner

Phaesun partner company S-Tel which is located at Abidjan/ Ivory Coast becomes official distributor for SolarWorld products for the West African market. The cooperation between the German module manufacturer SolarWorld and the Ivorian solar company S-Tel was formalized during the Off-Grid Experts Workshop in Memmingen/Germany in September 2015.
