“It creates drinking water sources right at the point of consumption thereby eliminating the carbon-intensive supply chains and the environmentally harmful plastic wastes that cannot be recycled.

“I am thrilled that we have such a great partner as Nzan Ogbe, that cares for his nation and shares our principles and values in his decision to provide Watergen – safe, high quality and tastiest drinking water from air to the Nigerian people. We will certainly support every goodwill of our partner.”

Also speaking, Ukonwa Ikedife, director, Macif Projects and Distributions Limited said, “given that access to safe drinking water is a basic human right and the World Health Organization has placed the number of Nigerians with access to safe drinking water at only 19 percent, Nigeria continues to struggle with providing safe and clean drinking water.

“Our partnership with Watergen seeks to close this gap while reducing our carbon footprint in contribution towards global climate action.”

“GEN-L is perfect for large communities and factories, while the Gen-M Pro would be appropriate for commercial, residential, and industrial uses such as schools, hotels, and hospitals. The GENNY, which requires a simple plug-in, is suitable for home and office use.

“While the state-of-the-art water treatment system has unique filters, UV and mineralization cartridge as part of its purification process to produce the highest quality safe and tasty drinkable water, according to the EPA and NSF61 requirements for safe drinking water.”

Watergen’s water generation products, which Macif is bringing into the Nigerian market, range from an indoor machine with an output capacity of about 30 litres of water per day to an outdoor device that can generate up to 6,000 litres per day.
