Aili Pump Prototype System
|Coordinator||Ailiinnovation Scandinavia AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||November 2017 - February 2018|
Purpose and goal
The projects purpose has been to test and verify the conditions for the Aili pumpsystem in India. The Aili pumpsystem is a solar powered water distribution system that is aimed to replace fossil fueled pumps. The system is a new Swedish patented invention and will initially be targeting “small scale farmers” in countries around the equator. The project that has been completed with the help and contribution from Vinnova has resulted in a report that describes the systems market potential in India as well as how the system should be introduced to the end-users via local partners.
Expected results and effects
The result of the project is, in addition to a detailed plan for market launch, also established partnership talks with Indian companies that have the potential to become future business partners to Aili Innovation Scandinavia AB. During the implementation of the project, additional business opportunities for the Aili pumping systems have been identified and as a result, new reference installation projects will be launched in April 2018.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been conducted with potential future Indian partners. The project has been supported by Business Sweden in India, the Swedish Energy Agency and the Confederation of Indian Industries, CII. Demonstration installations of the pumping system have been carried out by end users and comments from these groups have been documented and will form the basis for continued planning of the market introduction activities.
