Hybrid photovoltaic/electricity grid constant-pressure pumping system
Located in the town of Tamallalt in Morocco, this pumping system has a 120 kWp photovoltaic generator. The electrical part of the system is hybridised to enable it to be driven by electricity from the grid. This hybridisation has the purpose of complementing the photovoltaic system in order to guarantee constant pressure, even at night. The system satisfies the irrigation needs of 230 hectares devoted to intensive olive cultivation. Practically 100% of the energy used at the facility is of photovoltaic origin, as the irrigation network enables to organize shifts of eight hours per day.
