feedback, technical validation in diverse geographies and market opportunity in diverse socio-economic conditions. aQysta is on a quest to sustainably provide water for farming!
|Naam innovatie||Barsha Pump|
|Beschrijving innovatie|| The Barsha Pump is the first type of hydro-powered pump developed by aQysta. |
It is a water wheel propelled pump that utilizes the energy from the flow of rivers and canals to pump water without requiring any fuel or electricity to be operated.
aQysta has deployed Barsha pumps in more than 21 countries globally.
|Noodzaak en belang van deze innovatie||The impact is on the global irrigation sector is two-fold. One, the Barsha Pump adds running hydropower as an alternative energy source to the existing portfolio of sustainable pumping solutions. And two, it furthers the trend of creating more efficient water pumps at lower costs with a longer product lifetime and a quick point of ROI for the farmer.|
|Bijdrage aan een betere wereld|| Hydro-powered pumping is the most cost-effective water lifting technique in geographically feasible areas as |
validated by The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
As 70% of the world's water is used in the agriculture sector, increasing access to irrigation must be done with efficient use
of water. aQysta aims to provide water from rivers and canals, sustainably and cost-effectively, using it in efficient
ways to sustainably increase agricultural productivity, globally!
|In welke mate is de innovatie nieuw en origineel||The Barsha Pump is innovative in the way that it combines a mechanical principle with sustainable hydropower in order to lift water for irrigation. With patents granted and pending in all major markets in the world, it eliminates all operations costs incurred with conventional pumping methods as well as making lifted water available to farmers 24/7.|
