hello there
I am based in London and I am very interested in the wind rope pump for irrigating a small scale date palm/forage farm in the Nugaal valley,Somalia. (1 hectare, water 5metres from surface) It is windy for most of the year.

How can I learn to make this pump, are there any training courses/centres that I could go to? if so where?

regards, Faisal.

    Dear Faisal,
    Have you seen the Akvopedia article on the rope pump?

    It has a lot of good links to resources, including a manual created by PRACTICA and ETC Foundation. You should find everything you need there I think.

    Best regards
