Safe Water Supply in Western Desert

| RED WATER film online

In february 2014 AUTARCON installed the first two SuMeWa|IRON units for safe drinking water supply in two oasis communities in the western desert. This project was conducted in cooperation with the Research Institute for a Sustainable Environment at the American University of Cairo (AUC). This installation phase has been accompanied by an AUC film team. RED WATER gives an insight into the water situation of locals living in Western Deserts and how AUTARCON technology can contribute to a sustainable long term solution.

Since the beginning the SuMeWa|IRON units have become an integral entity for the oasis community in Egypt’s western desert. Due to the reputation the systems have reached, people travel as far as 30 km in order to tap this water.

By the End of 2015 seven units supply safe water in several oases in the western desert.

 

| Iron removal unit available

Since February 2014 AUTARCON operates these two units for iron removal and disinfection of source water in the Egyptian western desert with varying high concentrations of up to 13 mg/L. These units neither require exchange of filter media nor chemicals. Backwash and regeneration is conducted automatically, whenever required. The complete process is driven by solar energy and also works for Manganese. This unique filtration unit is now available for all SuMeWa|SYSTEMs.
