||Supply and installation of three solar water supply systems at Pacong Parish, Warrap Parish and Bunagok Parish|
||Diocese of Rumbek|
|Duration:||August 2014 – July 2015|
Goal of the project was to supply 3 parishes / villages with drinking water. Due to the high amount of requested water, the implemented solution was to implement for each location a solar water pump and a 20 m³ water tank, together with tapping points. Advantages of the solar water pump are that they operate without running costs and almost maintenance free by providing a high amount of water.
The overall implementation took place between August 2014 – starting with procurement of local and international materials – until the beginning of May 2015. Challenges encountered and successfully dealt with were:
- Weather conditions: long rainy season. Movement of workers and materials to project sites was difficult.
- Delays in procurement and missing parts of water tanks
- Insecurity on the roads to the missions
All three project sites were handed over to the project partner after the successful installation and electrical as well hydraulic tests.
