EBARA Pumps Europe and Boreal Light team up on Kenyan water project

EBARA Pumps Europe (EPE), part of the Japanese multinational company EBARA, agreed on a sponsorship with Boreal Light to supply clean and safe drinking water in Kenya through WaterKiosk.

WaterKiosk is developed by Boreal Light, a Berlin-based company specialising in renewable energy solutions for water treatment facilities.

In accordance with EBARA’s long term E-Vision 2030, the company will contribute to creating a world with ample food and water, especially in the countries that will experience population increase and economic development. The company aims to provide water to six hundred million people in the world.

Supporting Boreal Light to supply water in Kenya, EBARA will accumulate knowledge on the water supply business in Africa.
