WWST is the leading supplier of large-scale irrigation systems made viable using solar power thanks to their patented technology. The VariMax™ Drive provides an energy balance and appropriation of power to operate motors up to 1,000 HP from the sun alone.
This patented technology is incorporated in a range of WWST product solutions from small scale, easy to use 3.3 kW solar platforms capable of pumping 100,000 gallons of water daily to multi-megawatt irrigation systems. WWST irrigation designs and technologies are employed in pivot, flood and drip irrigation to name a few agricultural applications.
