The newly launched WaterKiosk® is equipped with the companies Winture Planet Cube ABW2000, which is capable of producing 20,000 liters of hygienic drinking water from saline or bacterially contaminated water. Located in a school compound south of Mombasa, the system differs from previous deployments by making water accessible to clients around the clock with an innovative token-based credit system. The tokens are loaded with credit by a WaterKiosk® operator via mobile money, afterwards token holders can present their tokens to the machine at any time of day to buy water. The installation is also equipped with a solar-powered electric cargo bike, to facilitate water deliveries to nearby villages. The cargo bike is charged from the same solar array that powers the WaterKiosk®. 

The kiosk was financed with the help of the Irene und Friedrich Vorwerk- Stiftung, which enabled the deployment of this solution to yet another community in Kenya.
