Water Island 2.0

What is Water Island?

A pumping station directly powered by photovoltaic panels.

The system consists of 4 simple components:

  1. high efficiency solar panels
  2. the drive (controller)
  3. a synchronous motor
  4. a pump for fluid movement.

The Water Island system was designed by MONDEO in collaboration with leading experts in the field of applied research in clean energy technologies.

 

Water Island solar pumping system

 

How does it work?

It automatically starts up at sunrise. When the current generated by sunlight reaches a minimum level of 20V DC and a power of 3W, the drive activates the motor pump, monitoring and mantaining optimum operating parameters.

Different types of pumps can be installed:

  • submersible well pumps, used to draw and pump from underground water sources
  • surface pumps, used to draw water for irrigation or deliver water from one place to another
  • circulation pumps, used to re-circulate and purify water in closed circuits (e.g., swimming pools or tubs)

 

1



Less expensive

Only the cost of installation: no maintenance or electricity costs.

2



Independent

The system is activated and runs independently: no batteries or generators required.

3



Powerful

Maximum efficiency thanks to a new generation synchronous motor.
