WIND PUMPING HANDBOOK

FOR ENGINEERS

A Wind Pumping Handbook for Engineers will be placed on the website. It consists of separate Modules which have been developed for various Training Courses, which were given in the Netherlands, UK, Philippines, Botswana and Tanzania. Most of the authors were members of CWD untill 1990, when CWD ended. The first six modules were digitalized and placed in 2009. In due time more modules will be added.
