EL NIÑO ON THE GROUND savings 21% 0.7 2015 Modern industry demands more energy effcient pumping solutions so we’ve broken the conventions in the name of effciency. The revolutionary design increases effciency, lowers energy consumption and minimizes total cost of ownership. You just have to decide what to do with the savings you make?

The region is less frequently buffeted by cyclones. MURRAY-DARLING BASIN Extremely dry conditions in winter and spring lead to low inflows and leave large swaths of the basin vulnerable to bush fires when the summer heat rolls around. TASMANIA The north east receives less rainfall during El Niño years throughout winter and spring, while the south west is vulnerable to dry summers. SOUTH AUSTRALIA The country's driest state suffers from a parched winter and spring most El Niño years, before receiving average rainfall from December onwards. AUSTRALIA'S EAST COAST The east takes the brunt of the dry conditions during El Niño years, with rainfall deficits throughout winter and spring a regular occurrence along the entire eastern seaboard south of far-north Queensland. WESTERN AUSTRALIA The west is not affected by El Niño as much as the east coast because the Indian Ocean generates its own weather patterns. However, slight rainfall deficits are often seen in the south west of the state. NORTHERN TERRITORY A large majority of the Northern Territory receives less rainfall during the El Niño cycle, particularly the north and central inland areas. However, extended dry periods are within the normal variability of the territory's dual wet/dry climate.
