Farm Solar Water Pumping

Delivering water to remote locations using just the power of the sun - no batteries or grid electricity required

New Zealand made SHP-Triplex solar powered pump

Off Grid water pumping

The SHP-Triplex is an ideal pump for filling livestock watering tanks. It is powered by solar panels and is clean, quiet, low maintenance and has a very small cost of ownership over the long term—and it’s made in New Zealand.

No batteries required and no ongoing diesel or electricity costs

Advantages of the SHP-Triplex

  • Can pump higher and further than other pumps
  • Far more cost effective than the competition
  • World best in class efficiency
  • Simply add 2-6 solar panels and pipe—no batteries required
  • Pumps when the sun shines—no ongoing diesel or electricity costs
  • Pumps to a set pressure (the point where the ball cock start to close)
  • Pressure stop point is set via a simple push button
  • Brushless motor design—no wearing parts in the motor
  • Efficient Direct drive motor—no gearbox to fail
  • Slow running (200 – 1200 rpm) makes it quiet and durable
  • Motor speed controller MPPT tracker for maximum solar power
  • Light at <20kg so can float on a pontoon on storage dams
  • Can pump clean or dirty water (within reason)

Price with pump and solar panels starts from less than $3,000

The solar panels are easily mounted on a wooden frame that can be made on site. Instructions are supplied for DIY construction and installation, or a complete supply and installation service is available by our electricians.
