Since 2008 MENA Water installed five container plants in different villages. Two more followed in 2011. The technology has proven itself in the difficult circumstances of very remote locations and now 5 additional container plants will be built.

Lamella settler, sand filters and disinfection ensure consistently high quality of cleaning performance. Since the systems use the principle of gravity, they can be operated many years free of trouble – even under the difficult conditions in Sudan.
