Nicholls Boreholes were contacted by a livestock farm near Graffham, West Sussex to provide a quote for supplying and installing a 177 metre water borehole to provide irrigation for their land and a water supply for their livestock. Due to the farm being situated on the top of the South Downs in an isolated position and with a lack of electrical supply, the water borehole is powered using solar PV (photovoltaic) panels.
Within the small plant room there is the back-up equipment for the waterwell. The water supply is being collected in a 20,000 litre water storage tank (also pictured) situated next to the plant room.
As part of our commitment to customer service, Nicholls provide an annual maintenance service to the farm for their complete peace of mind.
Working with Nicholls Boreholes on this project was a very positive experience. I found them to be extremely customer friendly and professional with a meticulous eye for detail. This was the first solar powered borehole pump that Nicholls had installed and a lot of research went in to deciding on the right equipment for the job. The site is isolated and is in the middle of the South Downs National Park. The borehole itself was deeper than anticipated and we also laid 4km of water pipe to supply livestock troughs, west and east of the borehole, including the Graffham Down Trust nature reserve. I would certainly recommend Nicholls to anyone thinking of installing a water borehole.
