Clients in Paraguayan Chaco choose 490 Wp sun2flow kit to save costs
Zug/Asunción. meeco América Latina S.A., a subsidiary of the Swiss meeco Group, has sold the first
ready-to-use kits, destined in their majority to pump drinking water for cattle, are composed of water
pumping technology combined with a solar photovoltaic (PV) system and can be easily installed by the
client himself (shop and go principle).
Having sold and installed fixed and mobile sun2flow water pumping solutions in the past two years,
meeco América Latina S.A. brings a high quality whilst affordable and do it yourself option to the
market with the introduction of the sun2flow kits.
Composed of two 245 Wp Lightway polycrystalline solar modules, a submersible pump and optional accessories such as a meeco-engineered pump flotation device, a PV supporting structure or water ventilation systems, the standard kit can generate
approximately 740 kWh per year. In addition, the sun2flow kit can pump up to 25.000 Liters a day
over an elevation of 20 meters and thus supply the water required by 500 head of cattle.
Starting at 10.500.000 Gs or 1.800 Euro, a standard sun2flow kit can be installed by the client in a
few hours time, thus saving installation costs. The installation can be namely simplified with the use
of pre-assembled meeco substructures or floating devices. One of the most recurrent application
scenarios for this kind of kit in Paraguay is to pump surface water using a floating water pump into a
water tank situated 10 meters above the water surface.
This over-the-counter kit solution designed by The meeco Group also meets a growing demand in the
Latin American neighboring nations. ‘There is a rising demand for smaller systems in countries such
as Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia that the sun2flow kit can fulfill,' says Dr. Oliver Jann, President of
meeco América Latina S.A. ‘Our kit solution has the potential to replace the traditional windmill driven
mechanical pumps, which in comparison have less performance, are more expensive, and much more
prone to failure,' adds Dr. Jann.
