Watergen, an Israel-based company which has successfully developed technology that generates drinking water from the air, today announced its strategic joint venture with SMV Jaipuria Group–a multifaceted business conglomerate, to bring its global patented technology to India. Through this partnership, the entities will introduce its Atmospheric Water Generators (AWG) product categories in India--that creates high quality, mineralized, safe-drinking water out of ambient air, everywhere. Additionally, to support the Government’s ‘Make in India’ vision by proliferating job opportunities, the companies shared their plans to launch a manufacturing unit in India within a year of starting operations.
The company showcased its wide range of Watergen products, consisting of: GENNY, GEN-M1, GEN-M PRO, and GEN-L. With their capacities ranging from 30 to up to 6,000 liters per day, the pricing of these products is estimated to start from INR 2.5 lakhs. These products will be ideal for schools, hospitals, parks, resorts, construction sites, temporary localities, villages, residential buildings, homes, offices and any other place where drinking water is required. Its plug and play technology can be easily installed using a standard electricity connection or any alternative energy sources. With devices deployed in more than 90+ countries around the world, Watergen eliminates the need for infrastructure, transporting water and its commuting traffic, which eventually reduces plastic waste and eradicates carbon-intensive water supply systems.
