Sudan plans to deploy solar irrigation pumps


Sudan's Ministry of Energy and Petroleum has published a call for expressions of interest from consultants to help arrange the deployment of 1,170 solar-powered irrigation pumps in two of the country's states.

The pumps would be rolled out on farms in North Kordofan, in the center of the East African nation, and in West Kordofan, further south.

The pump program is being financed by a grant from the African Development Bank, with the call for expressions of interest document published a week ago not specifying the amount.
