La ONG GivePower ha realizzato e installato lungo le coste della città di Kiunga, in Kenia, il primo impianto di trattamento dell’acqua che sfrutta l’energia solare per rendere potabile l’acqua del mare.

GivePower’s Solar Water Farm is a breakthrough blueprint solution for coastal areas struggling with water scarcity. With advanced filtration systems and new solar-powered desalination technology, GivePower is converting sea and brackish salt water into clean and healthy water. Each solar water farm produces enough fresh drinking water for 35,000 people every single day with no negative environmental impact.

Kiunga, Kenya is a small fishing community of about 3500 people located just a few miles south of the Somalian border. The village is situated along the coast of the stunning Indian Ocean and the area is home to an important marine conservation reserve. It’s also an area that has suffered extreme drought for many years.The location of Kiunga close to the shore with abundant seawater made it an ideal location for the first Give Power Solar Water Farm.
