Apollo, is a system designed and built by Irriland, for pumping water via electricpump powered exclusively by solar energy. Through one or more modules of solar panels and an advanced conversion and control system of the accumulated energy, we are able to control an electric pump with the aim to satisfy various possible needs, such as: lifting water from deep wells, filling storage tanks, farmland irrigation and drinking water supply. For greater reliability, it is possible to connect the Apollo to the electrical network and / or a generator, to obtain a guaranteed service 24h / 24h, even during times of low solar radiation, in the night hours and in case of maintenance. The system is made up of three elements: an electric pump, a control panel to manage and control the pump and the solar energy deriving from one or more modules of solar panels, variable according to the power required by the pump. Apollo stores water not electricity, therefore does not require energy storage systems, making it eco-friendly, environmentally sustainable and economically. Apollo is autonomous and does not require the presence of operators. Apollo uses the sun, free source, ecological and inexhaustible, which ensures operating costs equal to zero.
