Water Projects in Africa
Solar pumps for drinking water and irrigation
According to the United Nations convention on human rights, access to clean drinking water has been a human right since 2010. Nevertheless, around 2.1 billion people worldwide still have no access to clean drinking water, a large proportion of whom live in the rural development areas of Africa. With the use of solar pumps, Sahay Solar Engineering aims to make its contribution to ensuring a reliable and sustainable supply of clean drinking water for all people.
What's more, agriculture in the respective regions is usually the most important source of income for the local population and is highly dependent on a reliable and cost-effective water supply. The replacement of diesel generators with solar power and the installation of modern solar pumps in agricultural irrigation projects thus offers a sensible and future-oriented solution both on an economic and ecological level.
