Farmer designs revolutionary turbine which can pump water without electricity or diesel

Mangal turbines

Let us take a look at this revolutionary turbine which is helping farmers pump waters from rivers without using any electricity or fuel. Mangal Singh, the creator mangal turbines was born in a small village.

In his childhood he used to play with a firkin (top) every day. He says that was his inspiration and that he used the same idea to design this technology. His patented design is low cost, efficient, and does not depend on fuel or external energy source to lift water from rivers and other water bodies.

The technology is called Mangal Singh Water Wheel Turbine Pump-cum-PTP machine, aka Mangal Turbine and it is made entirely with locally available parts. It runs based on sound mechanical principles.

He says that as a farmer, he knows very well the kind of problems that farmers face. He thought of designing a machine that can harness the energy of flowing water and operate a pump using that energy as fuel is very costly and electricity is not regular in the villages.


He designed it first in 1987 when his electric pump broke down. Now the mangal turbines and have reached 1000s of farmers across the nation and help many people in villages.
