Bangladesh - Shallow Tubewell and Low Lift Pump Irrigation Project (English) Abstract. The Shallow Tubewell and Low-lift Pump Irrigation Project's objectives are to increase agricultural production, income and employment by supporting increased investment by farmers in simple, low-cost minor irrigation.

Bangladesh - Low Lift Pump Project (English) The Low Lift Pumps Project will be impleented over a four-year development period and will include: the provision of 8, new Low Lift Pumps (LLPs) together with spares to replace unserviceable and condemned units and to allow additional LLP fieldings See More +.

Irrigation Institutions of Bangladesh: Some Lessons irrigation projects to take care of dry season irrigation. The cost of irrigation became the maintenance of the field channels from the tertiary outlets to the farmers fields.

With conventional centrifugal pumps (CEN), less than 50% of southern Bangladesh’s farmers invest in dry season irrigation, partly due to high and continually increasing diesel energy costs. Diesel pump efficiencies in Bangladesh are only 25% (compared to 35% for electric pumps) mainly due to techno-mechanical problems.

Irrigation devices commonly used in Bangladesh Irrigation devices commonly used in Bangladesh may be divided into two main categories: zed pumps:DTW,STW, turbine pump, Low lift pump etc.

In this paper a typical year round irrigation load has been modeled and used to analyze the feasibility of replacing diesel irrigation pumps with solar PV powered motor-pump systems in HOMER.

Based on this result, our partner pump manufacturer in Bangladesh can be confident that their MFP impellers can generate heads of – m and – m at pump speeds of and RPM, respectively, for the current pump : Su Yu, Jonathan S.
