Our finished projects


SINJA Well-project 1

Location: Maasai steppe / Longido District - near Moshi Tanzania
Population: around 3000 Maasai
Well sponsor: 1. TP Fa. Leonhard Quelle Ltd Fam. Abfalter

The above-mentioned well project was a well renovation in which the old
diesel pump was removed and the system was equipped with a new
LORENTZ solar pump.

The following work was carried out on the well project:
* Pump test after upgrading the old system 
* Well depth: 63,10 meters
* Pump test: upper water level: 31,22 Meter
* Installation of the new LORENTZ solar pumping system

The long-term pumping test with the new pumping system has a filling capacity
of 24 liters / min.  With this bulk capacity  approx. 5000 people can be
supplied with drinking water.

The Maasai of the SINJA region thanked the Abfalter family for their donation used to renovate the old village well giving the people and the animals in the region access to drinking water. THANK YOU!

KABUKU Well-project

Location: Kabuku - Kilimanjaro District / Tanzania
Population: approx. 3000 inhabitants  & 225 school children
Well sponsor: Anton Welzhofer Ltd

In the above-named project renovation work was carried out on a shaft well where the existing non-functional pump was removed and the system equipped with a new and stronger underwater Lorentz pump.

The following work was carried out on the well project:
* Pump test after upgrading the old system
* Well depth: 23 meters
* Pump test: upper water level: 12,22 meters
* Installation of the new underwater pump

The long-term pumping test with the new pumping system yielded a filling capacity of 37 liters / min.  In the future with this capacity about 7500 people can be supplied with drinking water.

The villagers and schoolchildren of the village school of Kabuku - Kilimanjaro District
would like to thank the company Anton Welzhofer for their donation which was used for the renovation of the old village well which provided many people in the region access to drinking water.  THANK YOU!

NKONGNI Well-project

Project: Nkongni – Cameroon
Well-sponsor: Knorr Bremse – Global Care Foundation

The main aim of the project was primarily the construction of a drinking water supply system for the village of Nkongni East & West and its community of approximately 5,000 people. As a further measure, a central drinking water station was set up beside the local school for the 200 school children.

The entire project incorporated the construction of a well with two solar pump stations from which the water is directed into the first tank. By means of a further solar pumping station, the drinking water is piped from the first tank in the main village to the second drinking water station approx. 900m away. Thanks to the support of the Knorr Bremse Global Care Foundation, the schoolchildren and the whole community of Nkongni have been given access to drinking water as the basis for a worthy life, and all the involved parties say THANK YOU!

MKURU Well-project

Sponsor: Ganglberger Haustechnik Ltd – Alberndorf near Riedmark
Location: Arusha District ca. 2 hours by car heading north - next station Momella
Population: around 3000 Maasai with cows and goats

The following work was carried out by LNW: 
The first survey of the  system showed that the existing old and non-functional pump was installed at a depth of 35m in a well with a depth of 63.10 meters. The pump`s capacity was not suitably aligned, thus unable to pump the full amount of water out of the well.

To be able to calculate the maximum well capacity, our team installed a high voltage current pump for the implementation of the long-term pumping test.

With the high voltage pump at a depth of 55 meters with a hose 1 inch in diameter we were able to measure a water level of 31,22 m. Even after further measurements at longer intervals, no noticeable lowering of the water level was shown. The constant water capacity with the 1 inch pipe was 40 l / min.

The pumping distance to the concrete tank was an additional 600 meters with a level difference of 25 meters. Our team installed a Grundfos pump MSP Prod.No 96275336. suitable for pumping over longer distances with a level difference.

MAVENI Well-project

Location: Maveni close to a sugar plantation, about 4 km from Moshi
Well sponsor: Sponsored by the guests of the Hotel Hochfilzer in Ellmau

The above-named well project was a well renovation, in which the old non-functional well was cleaned and equipped with a new GRUNDFOS pump.

At a depth of 31,5 meters,  two Lorentz pumps C-SJ5-8 and PS 1200, had been installed. Due to a miscalculation of the pipe dimension, the old pumps caused an overvoltage and subsequently motor damage.

LNW team implemented the following work:
* Long term pump test
* Dismantling of the old solar pumps
* Installation of the new solar pumps
* Repair of the old connecting pipes to the individual drinking water tanks up to the center of the main village about 4 km away).

On completion the system was handed back to the village community again in good working order and with the high water capacity of 50,000 liters per day numerous people were able to be supplied with drinking water. The village community, led by the mayor, Mr. Leonhard MUSHI, would like to thank all guests of the Hotel Hochfilzer in Ellmau, especially Mrs Gabriele Hochfilzer, for their support. THANK YOU!
