After hearing about the Mikumi Solar Water Project I know I wanted to be on board. As an Electrical Engineering Technologist I was able to help the project by utilizing my knowledge of electricity, wiring, programing and installation of electrical components. There have been many ups and downs with the project. One of the main downs has been that the controller, which we were expecting to program to control the valve and the coordination of the solar pumps, was no longer working. Once realizing that the controller was no longer available, I coordinated the construction of a pushbutton to manually control the release valve. This will allow the sediment to be released without the use of the controller, unfortunately the valve will be “manually” operated. I was also able to troubleshoot the solar pump when it wasn’t working, I was able to assess that the solar pump, and solar panels were working properly, and therefore the problem must stem from a damaged pipe.
