Complete solar pumping system up to 50 hp mounted PV on std 20' container Built-in Solar VFD technology to replace diesel generators



Replace Diesel  Pumping Generators in Farms , RO  and  Industrial plants  

SOLAROPIA INC. is a start up company specializes in developing new solar pumping technologies for irrigation, water plants, industrial water recycling plants, and RO plants.

Our R&D team developed new solar-VFD pumping technology - pump indepnedent (operates all pumps), and grid indepndent ( operates without AC and with AC), and it is about 30% more efficient is uisng solar power (30% less PVs) compared with conventional solar inverters.


Category of the action

Reducing emissions from electric power sector.

What actions do you propose?

Solar  pumping Integrated (SPI) system ( Solar VFD+Pump Controller ) ready to plugin-in and operate any  3 phase AC pump.

Pumps from 3 to 50hp -all types in all applications ( deep-wells, surface, high-pressure boosters)

The system is containerized to make it easy to deploy (same day) as diesel generators , and it does not need construction permit for solar as the PVs are already mounted on the containers.

SPI-C "Containerzed" systems reduce the pumping cost by 50%-65% based on field data from 50HP pump operating with SPI solar , and leased diesel generator (the exact data : SPI costs $1500/month, Diesel : $3600/month)

SPI-C is ideal for :

- Diesel replacement in rural farms irrigation

-Operating RO and Desalination plants (the plant is mounted inside the container) .
