200 Desalination Units to Convert Seawater into Potable Water for 400,000 Kenyans

Finnish water technology company, Solar Water Solutions (SWS) has come a little close to being able to offer the world essentially unlimited fresh water supply through a zero-emissions, zero-running cost and eco-friendly desalination technology.

In a collaboration with the Dutch group Climate Fund Managers, the company will install up to 200 desalination units in Kitui County, Kenya. This project will be providing clean water made of brackish water for nearly 400,000 rural Kenyans by 2023.

This new solar-powered desalination system functions without connecting to a grid, without ever needing any batteries or chemicals. It has zero battery investments, zero running costs, zero-emissions and zero carbon footprint.
