Cost Effective Water Borehole drilling

The water borehole drilling is divided into 4 phase which are interconnected but can be handled one at a time
1) Hydro Geological Survey- These determine the underground water potential , what is the depth to be drilled , data of surrounding boreholes. The cost for survey is Ksh 60,000 less 30% discount for month of March- June 2017.  These services is done by Hydro Geologist Company
2) Permit Application – The stage involves permit application to WRMA offices and having EIA done ( NEMA)
a) WRMA application
b) EIA – Environmental Impact assessment
c) Nema License
d) WRUA – water user association – varies depending from region to region

3) Borehole drilling the cost for drilling 100-200ft bore-hole will cost Ksh 350,000 – 750,000 plus Rig mobilization fee which will depend on the exact location plus well development cost
4) Borehole pump installation – average cost for borehole pump installation from @ Ksh 225,000-550,000 depending on depth drilled  for complete pump installation

Solar Water Pumping with the power of the sun into a better future!

The CEV  Solar Water Pumping Solution is a fully automatic system designed to provide water at affordable cost for people with limited or no access to electricity. It uses the most advanced variable speed drive to regulate the speed of a 3-phase AC motor depending upon the solar energy available from the solar panel.

How does it work ?
An arrays of solar panels generates the power and voltage required for the CEV Solar inverter to drive the motor. The solar drive converts the DC voltage input to a 3-phase AC output with variable voltage and frequency. The MPPT algorithm of solar drive extracts maximum power available from the solar panels during the day and operates the motor at variable speed based on the power input to the drive. The frequency range in which the drive operates depends upon the motor speed, hydraulic system and the power available from the solar panel. As the sunshine varies during the day, power input to the drive varies and the Solar drive generates variable V/F ratio thus controlling the speed of the motor, which in turn regulates the pump impeller speed.

• Pumping of water in for irrigation and drinking water supply in off grid areas, easy installation.
• Farmer can cultivate multiple crops through out the year in off grid areas
• Farmer can save their time spent in collecting and transporting water.
• Lower operation expense compared to diesel pumps
• Zero emission of green house gases.

Borehole Servicing and Cleaning


The most important consideration after the proper construction of your borehole should be an ongoing cleaning and maintenance practice to ensure that your borehole consistently gives you the same flow rate as from initial construction and a clean potable water supply.  Depending upon the mineral content of the water yielded this service becomes necessary between every one to five years and the water analysis report will determine this.  This cost is considerably less than annual mains water bills and ensures that your borehole is kept in ‘tip top’ condition.

Often this simple practice eliminates the need for costly unnecessary filtration equipment which some companies may add years after construction to counteract the effects of mineral build-up in a borehole that has been left uncleaned over a period of time to create contamination of the borehole and water.
