Introduction: Haja locates in the north of Yemen, neighboring with Sana’a. There is no big rivers in Yemen, most of irrigation water comes from underground. The owner of green village spent about 85USD a day to keep the diesel generator working for 12 hours. Recently the fuel shortage and rising price made many farms could not maintain the living and production standards.
Solution: In 2014 September, Solartech PS30K solar pumping system was applied and became the biggest solar pumping project in Yemen after installation, it can produce water 800m3 daily at 70m water head using a 30kW Solartech AC submersible centrifugal solar pump for living use and Mango trees irrigation. Base on the encryption for installment payment designed by Solartech, Yemen Agriculture Bank can safely provide loan to farmers. Differ from noisy diesel pumping systems, solar pumping system operates quietly, the investment payoff period is only 3 years. Due to outstanding product performance, Solartech from China has become the most reliable solar pumping brand for Yemen government and financial institutions.
Economic Benefits: 81,993kWh of electricity generated annually; 770 tons of coal saving in its 25-year service life; 335 tons of CO2, 15 tons of SO2,12 tons of smoke and 200 tons of ash reductions in its 25-year service life.
According to World Development Indicators 2011 published by World Bank, every cubic meter of water consumption could contribute 4 USD to Yemen's GDP, in the system 25-year service life, over 7,300,000 cubic meters of water can be produced by solar energy for agriculture irrigation and living water supply.
