Solar powered water pump installed on remote borehole

Geologic Boreholes were contacted by the MOD and asked to drill a borehole on one of their training ranges. The drilling site was in a remote location over 2 miles from the nearest road. This site demanded specialist equipment just to enable us to get equipment on site. The borehole was drilled to 70M and a plentifull supply of water was discovered.

One of the main challenges of the contract was how the borehole pump was going to be powered. This problem was solved using a solar panel system and a solar powered water pump.

The solar powered water pump works on demand to pump borehole water to a large storage tank, this then gravity feeds into the water network.

The system is designed to extract 20,000L per day during peak times of the year, powered purely by a solar panel and the solar powered water pump.
