5HP Submersible Solar Water Pumping System

Location: Dhupguri
Capacity: 5 HP
Department: WBWRIDD Agri Mechanical
Purpose: Irrigation

Overview – 5 HP Submersible Solar Water Pumping System

The 5 HP Submersible Solar Water Pumping System at Dhupguri, West Bengal, is a state-of-the-art solar installation system installed by SunShell Power, one of the leading solar power companies in India.

The plant harnesses solar panel units to run a 5 Horsepower VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) solar pump set for irrigation purposes. The project comes under the Water Resources Investigation & Development Department Agri Mechanical.


Technical Details

This project by SunShell Power has an advanced Solar remote monitoring system that allows engineers to remotely monitor all solar panel data regarding Solar panel power generation and consumption.

Further, the dual-axis tracker structure of the solar panel allows easy changing of the tilt structure of the solar panels to maximize solar power output. Advanced features for human safety, IP 54 encloser for the controller box, and separate AC and DC multi-layer protection make this one of the most reliable Solar water pumping systems ever made.



The Project also promotes switching over to eco-friendly mode in the remote Dhupguri area, where a conventional electric grid is not available. With a very low operation and maintenance cost, one-time investment for installation of solar panels, and zero pollution, this is one of the best solar water pump installations in India in terms of return on investment and cost-effectiveness.



A major challenge that came forward during installation was the frequent burning-out of pump controllers and solar power units during a change of power source from solar to grid and vice versa. SunShell Power, as one of the most reputed solar power companies in India, delivered a unique solution to the problem, by implementing a load change over switch, which allowed only one power source at a time- either AC Power from the grid or DC Power from Solar panels. This has proved to be a hugely successful project.

Filtered Drinking Water Project at Ahom Pathar, Assam
Safe drinking water access is a fundamental human necessity and a basic human right. All people’s physical and social health is put at risk by contaminated water. Approximately 15% of Indians use open defecation, while more than 6% of the population lacks access to clean water. Such is the case for Ahom Pathar, a tribal village in Assam.
