SolarWorld and Danish global water pump manufacturer Grundfos have penned a supply contract for solar-powered water pumps project in developing countries.

A key enabler for this partnership was the fact that both companies have participated in the UN Global Compact.

SolarWorld and Grundfos noted that they share common techniques in the sectors of sustainability management, compliance and codes of conduct as well as they are fully integrated manufacturers in the domain of technological development.

Frank Asbeck, SolarWorld’s CEO said: “We view this contract as a big confirmation of our strategy of not making compromises in quality. Grundfos' company DNA corresponds perfectly to ours - our hearts are beating in synch when it comes to quality, reliability and sustainability. I wouldn't be able to imagine a better partner.”

Both sides have formed a strategic partnership with Water Missions International for an unspecified number of years. Under this agreement the organisation will supply clean, potable water in developing countries.

One solar-powered water pump can ensure the permanent supply of clean drinkable water to over 5,000 people.
