Grundfos Lifelink wins United Nations award

Grundfos Pumps

Grundfos Pumps has received a United Nations’ ‘Momentum for change’ award for its Lifelink automated pump system to provide remote villages and communities with guaranteed and continuous access to clean water. The system received one of six awards in the category ‘Information and communications technologies’ for integrating technology into its approach to supply a sustainable water supply in Kenya and Uganda.

Villages and communities can purchase the scheme and finance it through a local micro-financing partner. Repayments are made by users paying for their water via mobile phones, with some of the money received being used to pay for servicing and repair work.

Systems are generally paid for within five years, after which a small amount can be paid for on-going service and repair work.

Systems are linked to the Internet, and faults are automatically reported to Lifelink’s local service department.
