Water available 24/7
Water systems manufacturer (WMS) supplies water storage tanks that can be built very easily. For the improvement of their product WMS worked together with Indian company Topsun Energy on the addition of solar panels. These panels can supply electricity in remote places.
The Dutch knowledge of water management and Topsun’s knowledge of solar panels and the local market, has led to a new type of water storage system, which can have a significant contribution to the Indian economy by making water available 24/7.
Availability of water contributes to a fast growing Indian economy.
Low construction costs
WSM developed water storage systems with a capacity of 50.000 to 750.000 litres of water and can be transported, build, installed and moved very easily. A storage tank can be build in a few days. Production and building costs are much lower compared to existing water storage systems.
WSM uses Indian steel (Tata Steel) to build the water tank and provides a ten year guarantee to its customers.
The water storage systems can be used in agriculture (water for animals and irrigation), industry, buildings (temporary storage) and in case of a natural disaster (water and temporarily/re-usable shelter).
