8 new solar water-pumping systems in Northern Paraguay

meeco supplies 15.68 kWp of remote solar water-pumping in Pitiantuta, Chaco

ZUG/ASUNCIÓN. The Swiss meeco Group, via its local subsidiary meeco América Latina S.A., has recently provided the design and hardware for a large sun2flow water pumping facility in the Northern Chaco in Pitiantuta, Department of Boquerón, Paraguay. This sun2flow project consists of 8 surface water pumping systems powered solely by solar photovoltaic modules. The project was executed in association with meeco's long-term partner and agro equipment specialist, Taller Juancito. Each project has an installed solar power capacity of 1960 Wp to ensure a reliable, efficient and sustainable cattle water supply system.

Each sun2flow water pumping solution uses 8 Lightway 245 Wp polycrystalline solar modules as well as a 1.8 KW submersible pump. The modules are expected to produce more than 26.600 kWh of usable electrical energy per year. By using these solar powered sun2flow systems, the company will save approximately 38.400 Liters of Diesel per year.

Taller Juancito, a supplier specialized in agricultural equipment based in Filadelfia, has been meeco América Latina's partner for approximately one year, and also helps promoting as well as servicing the sun2flow solution in the region. The meeco Group is namely the official solar module supplier of Taller Juancito.

"The company is closely related to the "Cooperativa Fernheim" which plays a dominant role in the economic activity of the whole Chaco region, and is thus a very good example of efficient remote solar water pumping use. We have no doubts that these new sun2flow installations will convince other farmers to use our technology", says Dr. Oliver Jann, President of meeco América Latina S.A.

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
