Appropriate technology... and you can't beat the price.
Teams from the Dicle Elektrik Dağıtım Anonim Şirketi
(Dicle Electric Company/ DEDAŞ) have seized an illegal
electrical transformer that was loaded on to a tractor's trailer
in Diyarbakır's Bismil district. As the agricultural irrigation
season has begun, the illegal use of electricity has risen,
Determined to head off this practice, DEDAŞ found the
jerry-rigged transformer apparatus hidden away deep in a corn
field in Bayındır vıllage. The transformer was attached by a
cable thrown on to an overhead high-tension wire that passes
over the field and was being used to irrigate the 10 acre field
with as much energy as a small village would use.
Bismil district is in southeastern Diyarbakır province.
