EBARA a Japanese based multi-national specializing in the production of environmental and industrial machinery. In April 2021, EBARA Pumps Europe partnered with Boreal Light to gain exposure to retail water sales in Africa as a part of their “E-Vision 2030” plan. Under the terms of the partnership, EBARA will provide funding for the deployment of one of Boreal Light’s Winture® water desalination systems as well as providing the company’s pumps for use in the project. The partnership will be implemented on the ground by company’s African subsidiary, WaterKiosk LTD, which has already begun the process of engaging with local stakeholders and preparation for construction.

The partners will deploy one of Boreal Light’s signature Winture® water desalination systems at the Masasku School for the Physically Disabled in Machakos, Kenya. The system will be launched in July of 2021 and will provide hygienic drinking water to the school as well as the local community.

The Masaku School installation is another example of Boreal Light’s ability for forge partnerships for impact and highlights the viability of business models focused on providing life essentials using renewable energy sources.
