Wilo USA Solar Borehole Pumps Provide Cost-Efficient, Autonomous Water Supply

Wilo USA, a provider of pumps and pump solutions for water management, building services and groundwater, is pleased to offer a range of solar borehole pumps, including a new, 4-inch solar submersible pump, available in two series, the Wilo-Quick Solar and the Wilo-Opti Solar series.

Wilo well pumps feature the most efficient, simple design for clean water on the market. The all-stainless steel solar submersible pumps offer either a centrifugal or helical rotor hydraulic execution and feature permanent magnet motors. Additionally, no external controls are required for the operation of either series.

The Wilo-Opti Solar has an operating range of 90-265 V and up to 3,000 W and can operate on either AC or DC power. The pump reaches heads to 755 ft and flows exceeding 60 gpm. The Wilo-Quick Solar has an operating range of 70-190 V and up to 800 W on DC only. Available in three 316SS helical rotor models and one 30 gpm stainless centrifugal model, the full series covers from 3-35 gpm and reaches a max depth of 400 ft. Custom solar systems are also available.

Matthew Beasley, Director of Sales for Wilo USA’s groundwater division says, “The new Wilo-Quick Solar and Wilo-Opti Solar series make accessing water in remote locations and off the grid easier than ever. The Opti pumps are especially flexible because they can run on either solar, AC or DC power thanks to the available integrated frequency converter.” He continues, “The system is highly competitive and responds to your float or pressure switch, or rises to pump with the sun, all with no controls in the system.”

The pumps’ high motor efficiency and starting torque keep the systems moving in low light conditions for 24/7 access. The systems use a sophisticated dynamic Maximum Power Point Tracking (MMPT) algorithm to provide the highest water output, and with remote monitoring & control available as well as global sizing, Wilo offers the most comprehensive solar pumping solutions on the market. The company will be expanding its offering further by the end of 2018 with a new model, up to 6 kW.
