Demonstrator plants in operation in Mozambique and South Africa

August 2019

Two demonstrators are in operation now in rural areas in Mozambique and in South Africa. They take water from Klip River and Inkomati River and have shown to be capable to purify water meeting World Health Organization and South African SANS 241 standards. The demonstrator in Waterval, South Africa, is equipped with solar panels and battery for off-grid operation and has already been tested in the 24 hours operation mode. Sensors, cameras and automatic messages to a call center enables a remote monitoring and efficient operation and maintenance.
