Special Field Water

Water - a challenging and comprehensive field of work. Dealing with water in Africa is a responsible task. Water construction requires competence and expertise. We speak fluent water! Through our many years of work in our specialised field in various countries in Africa, we have a wealth of experience.

Water Supply

Water supply includes water extraction, water pumping, water storage and pipeline construction.

At the beginning of the water supply is the water extraction. The water can come from groundwater, from surface waters such as rivers and lakes or from springs. Another method is the collection of rainwater.

During an on-site inspection, we will decide with you what the best solution is.

Water Treatment

The water pumped, be it groundwater or surface water, usually has to be treated in some way so that it can be used as drinking water. The so-called raw water often contains undesirable substances such as suspended solids, bacteria, viruses, fertilizer residues or heavy metals.

Depending on the substances that have to be removed, the water treatment process also changes.

Workshops

Our seminars are mainly aimed at people who are responsible for water projects on site.

Contents are basics of water supply, WASH and others.

Good knowledge of mathematics, physics and chemistry is an absolute prerequisite.

For seminars outside Africa please contact directly Eng. Jürgen Baisch.

Irrigation

Irrigation makes sense wherever agriculture is not profitable or not possible due to insufficient water. This is often the case in semi-arid and arid areas.

Irrigation offers the chance to increase crop yields and thus become less dependent on food aid. With sufficient irrigation, soil salination can also be avoided. Soil that has already been salinated can become salt-free again.

We want to stay mobile

Get it rolling!

The pick-up, which we often borrowed free of charge for our projects, is now 20 years old and clearly getting on in years. It can no longer cover long distances far from asphalted roads. Therefore, we now need a reliable off-road vehicle. It is to be stationed centrally in Uganda. Help us to stay mobile!
