Nigeria needs sustainable clean water solutions that eliminate carbon-intensive supply chains and environmentally damaging plastic waste. Data from development organizations has shown that the country needs to improve the quality of its drinking water, among other things for health reasons. As such, a world leader in atmospheric drinking water generation devices, Watergen has recently launched in Nigeria, with Macif Projects and Distribution Limited (Macif) as the exclusive distributor. The atmospheric water generator (AWG) is a plug-and-drink solution that provides sustainable clean drinking water from the atmosphere.

In this chat with Ukonwa Ikedife, Director of Macif Projects and Distributions Limited, she talks about how the economic and environmentally friendly AWG, which is based on a globally patented unique heat exchange technology, can help address the challenges of clean water scarcity in our communities.

Q1: Can you tell us more about Watergen and why Macif is bringing this innovative technology to Nigeria?

Watergen is a world leader in atmospheric drinking water production with an innovative and sustainable solution that uses a patented unique heat exchange technology to generate clean drinking water from the atmospheric air. Recognizing the need for this solution in Nigeria, Macif is bringing this innovative technology to Nigeria to address the challenges of clean water scarcity in our communities. Through this partnership, Macif aims to provide a sustainable and reliable solution that is safe, cost-effective and environmentally friendly.

V2: This is probably the first atmospheric water generator in Nigeria. How can this contribute to water security and climate action in Nigeria?

The introduction of Watergen’s atmospheric water generator in Nigeria will significantly contribute to water security and climate action, as Watergen’s technology reduces reliance on traditional water sources, such as groundwater or surface water, which are often limited, scarce and prone to pollution. By leveraging atmospheric water generation, Nigeria can diversify its water resources, improve water availability, reduce water-related conflicts and mitigate the negative impacts of climate change on water resources.

In addition, because the Watergen devices are a plug-and-drink solution, i.e. used to create sources of drinking water at the point of consumption, they would eliminate carbon-intensive supply chains and environmentally damaging plastic waste that cannot be recycled. reducing our environmental footprint as a contribution to global climate action.

Watergen’s water generation products, which Macif markets to the Nigerian market, range from an indoor machine with an output capacity of approximately 30 liters of water per day to an outdoor unit capable of generating up to 6,000 liters per day. The Watergen GEN-L, GEM-M PRO, Gen M1 and GENNY machines produce 6000 litres, 900 litres, 220 liters and 30 liters per day respectively. With this diverse range of devices, Watergen is able to serve households, hotels, restaurants, schools, offices, religious institutions, marine and marine vessels, healthcare facilities, community centers and all institutions that require a reliable and safe source of drinking water.

Q5: What impact do you think Watergen would have in Nigeria as a clean water solution provider?

By providing a sustainable source of clean drinking water, Watergen will improve public health outcomes, reduce reliance on bottled and sachet water, reduce plastic waste and ease the burden on traditional water infrastructure. The technology’s potential for scalability and adaptability makes it a promising solution to address water challenges in urban and rural areas of Nigeria.

Q6: Since the generating sets can produce between 30 and 6000 liters daily. Who are the ideal or preferred targets for this innovative technology?

The ideal targets for these innovative water generators are households, offices, schools, hospitals, communities, markets, train stations, hospitals, IDPs, barracks, prisons and other facilities or organizations that require a consistent and reliable source of clean drinking water. In addition, all areas with limited access to clean water or unreliable traditional water sources will benefit from Watergen’s atmospheric water generation technology.

Q7: Given your experience and interaction with potential users/investors, do you think Nigeria is ready for this technology?

Given the challenges posed by clean water scarcity in Nigeria, Nigeria is a suitable market for Watergen’s technology. While adoption and readiness for this technology may vary between different regions and communities within the country, the importance of sustainable water solutions is increasingly recognized. With the right awareness campaigns, education and support, Nigeria has the potential to embrace and benefit from this innovative technology.

Q8: What milestones has Watergen achieved around the world and what milestones do you hope to achieve in Nigeria?

Watergen has achieved significant global milestones and established itself as a leader in atmospheric water generation. These milestones include successful implementations in different countries, collaborations with international organizations and awards and recognition for the innovative technology. In Nigeria, the milestone of the introduction of Watergen’s atmospheric water generator will help raise awareness about sustainable water solutions, drive technology adoption and achieve positive outcomes such as improved access to clean water, reduced reliance on plastic or sachet water, less plastic waste, improved water security and a positive impact on public health and the environment.
