Remote Agricultual Solar Pump System

Case Study

Customer: Appleton Pastoral Company

Location: Alpha, QLD

Specifications & Features:

Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment are proud to be promoting the very latest innovations and energy savings available via our professionally engineered solar pumping systems for the farm or homestead.

Appleton Pastoral Company (a Queensland Beef Cattle Enterprise with several properties across Central Queensland) purchased a solar pumping system to manage their onsite stock water reserves.

The system was required to pump from Appleton Pastoral Company's new dam to a turkeys nest holding dam (geographically located at the top of a major elevated ridge in Alpha).

The system pumps on average 100,000L / day @ 20m total head. From the turkeys nest the stock water then gravity feeds several kilometres down the elevated ridge to troughs and other water tanks located throughout the property.

Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment's Rockhampton branch will be in attendance and exhibiting at the triennial Beef Australia 2015 exhibition May 4th - 9th in Rockhampton, QLD - come visit us in the Walter Pearce Pavilion @ Beef Australia 2015 on stands P27 & P54 to view the latest technological innovations in solar pumping, water treatment, small and large scale irrigation and speak to our experienced team to learn more about our efficient fluid handling solutions.
