Portugal - Solar pump for irrigation of apple trees plantation.
Irrigation by solar pumping of an apple plantation in the municipality of Caldas de Rainya (Portugal)
BAICO series YASUR and NERA pumps have been installed with high performance for the total supply of the complex apple tree plantation, since its orography is divided into different levels; this is why 2 tanks have been installed and several pumps to supply a total capacity of 600 m3.
The customer choose for the solar pumping installation replacing the one he had until today with diesel engines, which was inefficient and expensive.
The selection, calculation and supervision of the installation was carried out by the company Ricardo Silva Unipessoal lda, (BAICO Importer for Portugal)
Approximately there are about 5 HA of apple trees where a high production is achieved (more than 100 tons per year) with a 100% ecological irrigation.
The customer is our priority and services our commitment, BAICO Pumps works for it.
