Background :
Over 2.2 Million people of total global population die annually due to lack of safe water, while 800,000 children die every year due to the same. Lack of access to safe water leads to several water borne diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid etc. The numbers are mind-boggling. There has not been a consistent solution in large numbers to contour the root problem.
Solution :
Born in 2007, Solar Dual Pump solution is an integration of existing and popularly known hand pump technology with advanced solar pumping technology with the SAME riser pipe. It works purely on the solar energy to pump water in an overhead storage tank and has the hand pump installed ONLY for adversely cloudy/overcast conditions, WITHOUT batteries/grid/diesel genset,etc. More details in the technical specification document. Making it a 100% GREEN system providing 24x7 water to the villages. The advantages of storing water in an overhead tank, allows water distribution setup to work brilliantly for filtration,hand washing, toilets, playground and other purposes. It comes with a solar based - Iron removal/ De-fluoridation system which provides clean water for drinking purposes. The filtration system works on gravity and comes with (programmable) SPAN smart card system for proper utilization of water. More details in the Technical specification document. We understand the importance of WATER. Hence all our systems are designed to avoid over-usage or wastage of water. Appropriate sensors and access controls are incorporated to ensure the same. As on date, we have installed and commissioned over 550 such systems in India, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, Bangladesh, Ghana, Burkina Faso, etc providing water to different rural schools.
