Windmills were one of the first products manufactured by Southern Cross. Our skills and knowledge have been accumulated over nearly 110 years through continuous improvements in design and manufacturing. This on-going quest for excellence positioned Southern Cross as the undisputed, leading windmill manufacturer globally.
Our agriculture roots date all the way back to 1871, and even though it’s almost 150 years down the line, the demand for traditional water pumping products remains high due to their economy of use and ecological friendliness.
We manufacture a range of water-pumping windmill towers that vary in size and suit most terrain types. Southern Cross has extensive experience with windmill design for portable water, as well as stock watering applications. The advantages of using our technology includes simple maintenance, low running costs, ease of installation, and predictable pumping performance. Southern Cross adopts a holistic approach to windmill water-supply systems – embracing wind speed domains as well as the necessary hydraulic aspects of large and small systems.
Whether you are a farmer interested in purchasing one small mill for a stock watering point or a potential purchaser of a large-scale rural village supply scheme, Southern Cross can assist you with advice and a quality product.
