Watergen, a global leader in atmospheric drinking water generating devices has launched in Nigeria, with Macif Projects and Distribution Limited as its exclusive distributor.
In a statement by the company, Macif, in collaboration with Watergen, introduced an inventive technology and solution aimed at delivering clean and sustainable water to Nigerians by extracting it from the atmosphere.
It stated, “Watergen’s innovative solution is based on a worldwide, patented unique heat exchange technology that is safe, effective, economical, and most importantly, environmentally friendly.
“These water generating devices are plug-and-drink i.e. they are used to create drinking water sources right at the point of consumption thereby eliminating the carbon-intensive supply chains and the environmentally harmful plastic wastes that cannot be recycled.”
The President of Waatergen, Dr. Michael Mirilashvili, expressed delight on the partnership.
He said, “I am very happy that we have such a great partner as Nzan Ogbe, who cares for his nation and shares our principles and values in his decision to provide Watergen – safe, high quality, and tastiest drinking water from the air to the Nigerian people. We will certainly support every goodwill of our partner”.
Also speaking, the Director, Macif Projects and Distributions Limited, Ukonwa Ikedife, said, the partnership with Watergen sought to close the clean water gap, while reducing the carbon footprint in contribution towards global climate action.
“Given that access to safe drinking water is a basic human right and the World Health Organization has placed the number of Nigerians with access to safe drinking water at only 19 per cent, Nigeria continues to struggle with providing safe and clean drinking water,” he said.
The statement added that, “Watergen’s water generation products, which Macif is bringing into the Nigerian market, range from an indoor machine with an output capacity of about 30 liters of water per day, to an outdoor device that can generate up to 6,000 liters per day.
“The Watergen GEN-L, GEM-M PRO, Gen M1, and GENNY machines produce 6000 litres, 900 litres, 220 liters, and 30 respectively per day.
“GEN-L is perfect for large communities and factories, while the Gen-M Pro would be appropriate for commercial, residential, and industrial uses such as schools, hotels, and hospitals. The GENNY, which requires a simple plug-in, is suitable for home and office use.”
It added that, “While the state-of-the-art water treatment system has unique filters, UV and mineralisation cartridges as part of its purification process to produce the highest quality safe and tasty drinkable water, according to the EPA and NSF61 requirements for safe drinking water.”
