This revolutionary technology is helping farmers all over India to pump water in their fields from rivers without using any electricity or fuel. Read out how!
Born in a small village of Uttar Pradesh, Mangal Singh designed this revolutionary turbine and whenever he’s asked of his journey to this massive invention, he remembers the time he used to spend in his father’s fields, playing in the pumped water.
Singh has designed a patented technology that is low-cost, efficient and does not require any fuel or external energy source to lift water from the river and water bodies.
The technology, called Mangal Singh Water Wheel Turbine Pump, also known as Mangal Turbine was developed from reasonable tools bought from local stores, unlike the most common turbines and it runs completely on sound mechanism and requires no form of energy to pump water in rural areas.
This innovative technology took birth in 1990 when he was hopeless as his electronic pump damaged, his crops got destroyed and even the banks refused to help him. He implemented this technology in his village on an infertile land which was soon transformed into a green space due to Mangal Turbines.
The technology worked efficiently carried water to over 2 kilometers in distance. Then he used this machine on a forest nursery where over 1,20,000 litres of diesel was saved.
“The technology is unique because it is a one-of-its-kind machine where water is being lifted without any fuel or energy. That is where Mangal Turbine stands out when compared to other technologies” he says.
This invention by Mangal turbines proved to be a huge success and is no doubted, unmatched to the regular turbines. It can also be used for agricultural works, operating flour mills, sugarcane crushing, threshing, expelling oil, chaff cutting, and many other places.
Mr. Singh is having plans to spread his invention all over India in the coming future and he’ll accomplish it for sure if he is able to manage enough funds from the government. “I cannot do it all by myself. I have no resources to pull it off,” he says.
Here’s what he had to say in an interview:
