Savilonis, Brian James
The aim of this project was to design and construct a wind pump that is able to provide water to a rural third world village. This was achieved by using a Savonius-Darrieus turbine connected to a rope pump in order to create a system that was robust and easy to construct in a low-technology area. The pump proved to be a cost-effective, low technology method of pumping clean water.
