Xylem & Lorentz: Solar-Powered Pumping Solutions Go Global
- Xylem and Lorentz partner to bring solar-powered and solar/grid hybrid pumping solutions to global customers, enabling water managers to meet decarbonisation goals while reducing costs. Not available in Australia.
Xylem and Lorentz have partnered to expand the availability of solar-powered pumping systems globally. The agreement will see Lorentz supplying Xylem with solar-powered and solar/grid hybrid pumping systems to augment their existing portfolio and collaborate to develop new products. Xylem's customers will now have access to sustainable pumping solutions, enabling water managers to address decarbonisation goals while reducing operating costs. Lorentz's technology uses renewable energy to deliver reliable, sustainable water at lower cost, even in remote locations. Both firms will continue to serve their respective market segments but the distribution agreement excludes the Australian market.
What is the Largest Solar Self-Consumption Project in Chile?
- Xylem and Lorentz have partnered to expand the availability of solar-powered pumping systems globally.
- The largest solar self-consumption project in Chile is a combined solar-diesel system in the Atacama Desert.
- The system will generate 2.2 megawatts of electricity and 3.6 megawatts of thermal energy.
- The project will reduce diesel fuel consumption by up to 70 percent and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 30 percent.
- The system will be integrated with the existing grid infrastructure and will provide electricity and thermal energy to two nearby villages.
- Lorentz’s solar-powered systems will be used in the project, as well as Xylem’s solar/grid hybrid pumping systems.
- The project is expected to be completed within the next two years.
