Royal visit of PV-BWRO OSMOSUN® solar desalination units in Mozambique

5 February 2019

Since July 2018, 7.200 inhabitants of 6 villages in the province of Gaza, in southern Mozambique, have daily access to drinking water by means of OSMOSUN® brackish water solar desalination plants, designed and installed by Mascara Renewable Water, in each of these villages.

This program, funded and carried out by the Belgian Cooperation Agency Enabel, is considered as a reference for water supply in rural areas. Her Majesty Queen Mathilde of Belgium decided therefore on 5 February 2019 to visit one of the villages benefiting from the program.

An example of cooperation

Mascara Renewable Water implemented the design and the manufacturing of these 6 units in record time of 3 months in its workshops in Chartres. Vergnet Hydro SAS and its local partner Afridev Mati Mozambique Lda ensured the plants’ field commissioning and water supply.

This program constitutes a real hope for safe water supply for thousands of rural villages in Mozambique and Africa.
