Design of solar powered irrigation system

BS-consult designed a solar powered irrigation and water storage system for a pig farm in Ruhango distrcit Rwanda.

The farm has 200 pigs and several fields with crops. Our task was the design of a system to supply the pig stables and the fields.

The system is designed to pump water from a well to a  water reservoir with a difference in altitude of 20m. Because of high suspended solids in the water we included a filter chamber. From the reservoir we planned pipework to the fields and to the stable.
