Visit to Drupps by Kenyan government delegation

Drupps had the great pleasure of receiving an official delegation from GOVERNMENT OF KENYA headed by H.E. Mr Kenneth Lusaka, Speaker of the Senate.

This is the third delegation visit by Kenyan officials to Drupps since November 2018, and a follow up visit to the visit made on April 8 by Kenya’s ambassador to the Nordic countries Dr. Joe Sang and Deputy Governor of Kericho County Susan Kikwai.

This particular delegation was exclusively the first ever to experience a full-scale live demonstration of a Drupps Concept installation and to have a taste of the clean drinking water produced. The delegation was quite pleased by the experience and could confirm the clean taste of the water.

The Drupps Concept installation was delivered to Drupps head offices in Uppsala on Friday May 3rd and was installed and fully operational on Monday May 6th.

“I think this is a good example of the simplicity and swiftness of installing a Drupps Concept system. Provided there is adequate power connection, you are good to go within a day or two”, says Drupps CEO Jonas Wamstad.

Drupps presented its vision of sustainable cities in 2030 where real estate developers and owners take a bigger share of the responsibility for water infrastructure in the community by installing water producers on rooftops providing the entire building with clean drinking water. The water produced on the rooftops is stored in water tanks and is distributed throughout the building via a tap water network with the help of gravity.

This way, water sourcing will shift toward new sustainable sources instead of being sourced from the ground or rivers. In addition, less municipal investment will be needed for drinking water piping below the streets. Instead, this money could be shifted toward recycling of used water.
