Vikram Solar said it has signed an MoU with Israels Water-Gen to develop clean and hygienic drinking water solutions in the country.
According to PTI, Vikram Solar said in a statement that the technology developed by Water-Gen to create and store drinking water by harvesting condensation from air, provides a potential solution to the clean and safe drinkable water crisis faced by India.
According to the statement, the larger objective of this collaboration is to make available drinking water to the remote locations of the country using its rich natural resources, air and humidity. The cost-effectiveness of the technology is an added bonus that will help make the solution available to the masses.
Combined with Vikram Solar’s technological prowess and expertise in the solar power domain, the attempt is to conceptualise a product most suitable for the Indian market requirements, it said.
Incorporating use of solar power into the Water-Gen technology is expected to further enhance the energy efficiency and availability of power for the technology in remote locations, through use of solar panels, it added.
Under the MoU, Water-Gen will share their technology and know-how with Vikram Solar to manufacture the products in India.
