Rainmaker Worldwide has now delivered its first Water-to-Water technology to Cape Town, South Africa. The Company is working with an international distributor with local presence in Cape Town as its sales and technical partner.
It is broadly acknowledged that the ongoing critical issues regarding water in Africa require new approaches and solutions to meet the most basic drinking water needs. Cape Town’s water supplies remain at high risk because the long-term predictions for rainfall in the south-western Cape remain uncertain. The company believes that Rainmaker’s technology can play an important role in meeting the population’s requirements.
Michael O’Connor, President and CEO of Rainmaker Worldwide said, “We are exceptionally pleased to work with our partners in South Africa with whom we share the common objective to provide clean drinking water to those who need it most. The Cape Town region has suffered immeasurably from the impacts of unforeseen and potentially long-term drought conditions. We believe our decentralized and cost-effective technologies are ideally suited to these acute situations of water need. We look forward to collaborating closely with our local team to develop a long-term strategy for the region.”
Through an operational hub in Cape Town, we will use a mobile unit to demonstrate the efficacy of our technology. This initial deployment will be followed by larger machine deployments that are under contract. In the coming weeks we will be making a series of joint announcements for Rainmaker’s long-term plans throughout South Africa and the region.
