Kenyan coast: drinkable water from the ocean

First desalination solar plant installed in Kiunga

20-08-2019 by redazione

The first solar system that makes drinkable water from the Indian Ocean has been installed in Kiunga, in the reserve of the Lamu Archipelago Marine Park, by the NGO Give Power. It is a system that, thanks to advanced filtration systems, is able to convert ocean water into drinking water for a population of thousands of people in the coastal area north of the town.
The territory of Kiunga is particularly arid and before the construction of this plant the inhabitants were forced to make a one-hour journey to recover dirty and salty water from a well.
The entire system required an investment of 500 thousand dollars and it took a month to install it. Thanks to this new infrastructure it is possible to produce up to 50 thousand litres of drinking water per day. It would have been impossible to do otherwise in that area, both because of the lack of connections to the electricity grid and because of the high maintenance costs. Normal desalination plants require a lot of energy.
