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.

  • Photovoltaics International 25th Edition

    In this issue we offer some insights into what the next wave of photovoltaic technologies may look like as that upturn gathers pace. Industry observers have been in broad agreement that the major next-gen PV technology innovations won’t happen straight away. But there’s also little doubt that the search is now on in earnest for the breakthroughs that will come to define the state of the art in the industry in the years to come.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
