Southern Tunisia, in the border region with Libya and the edges of the Sahara, is home to numerous date plantations. This versatile fruit is one of the North African country’s most important exports. Here, the sun is both a blessing and a curse: on the one hand, it generates extreme heat, while on the other, it also provides free energy that can be targeted for specific purposes with photovoltaics.
Namely, the urgently needed irrigation of the region’s date plantations. A 20 kW free-field photovoltaic system was recently put into operation close to the Tunisian oasis town of Douz. The electricity generated powers a water pump, which in turn pumps groundwater out of the earth to water the date palm plantation. The Project was installed by an EXE Solar Tunisia customer, who chosen photovoltaic modules from EXE Solar.
A total of 48 Triton series photovoltaic modules with 108 monocrystalline multibusbar M10 half cells were installed. These were split in half to improve performance, and arranged in two parallel strings for better shading control. With a 35 mm black anodised aluminium frame, the Triton series combines robustness and visual appeal with an efficiency in excess of 21%.
