Solar Powered Drip Irrigation

BP Solar is set to start building a large-scale solar-powered drip irrigation system in Sri Lanka. The first phase of the contract will bring the system to 5100 families, reducing overall energy consumption, soil erosion, and the use of dangerous kerosene-fueled pumps. Renewable Energy Access has some details, mostly about financing.

And that's pretty much all I can find about what sounds to be an interesting project. The BP Solar and BP Solar/Australia websites don't have any information on this, and all the news reports I could find appeared to be simply republishing the Renewable Energy Access piece.

Any of you have better leads on this?
