TenCate, Pentair and Wavin supply innovative drinking water system GreenSource to South Africa
The Sustainable Water Fund of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs has commissioned Pentair, TenCate and Wavin jointly to install twenty sustainable drinking water systems in South Africa, called GreenSource.Sports for Water. The water treatment part of this integrated system will be produced by Pentair, the water buffering and pipe systems will be manufactured by Wavin and the high-grade synthetic turf and geotextiles by TenCate. The integration of the system will be carried out in South Africa by the firm Landscape Solutions with its local partner, Royal Turf South Africa. This innovative drinking water system will be installed in the South African province of North West with selected, local contractors. Saxion University of Applied Sciences, as a knowledge institute in both water and textile technology, will provide an important substantive contribution. Training and supervision of the proper use of the drinking water systems will be provided by Mmapula Community Development, with which company Saxion has been working for several years. The Advanced Materials Manufacturing Oost-Nederland (AMMON) foundation will monitor this innovation.
