Waterleau providing drinking water in Senegal

25 May 2023

Making our WATERMARK! in Senegal!

Waterleau is joining the economic mission to Senegal this week. We were invited to present the Salimento project, a joint Waterleau / Wasser Aram partnership made possible under the PEM-WECCO program, a European funded and Belgium government supported circular mobility scheme, implemented by flanderstrade, Enabel, AWECS and and aimed at connecting Senegalese entrepreneurs to their Belgian peers. ​​​​​​​

The Waterleau - Wasser Aram project encompasses the construction of a new drinking water plant in Senegal : Founder Niam Matar from Wasser Arame is commercializing safe drinking in a fast-growing Senegalese Market. With the help of Enabel, the Belgian development agency, Waterleau and Wasser Aram established a partnership for the construction of the new plant. In the Joint-Venture, Waterleau will provide the water treatment technology, while Wasser Arame will be responsible for plant construction, as well as the sales and marketing of the bottled water.

The new plant is to be built near the city of Thiès, with a capacity of 100 m³ per day, offering healthy, quality and refreshing water to the Senegalese population. This project is part of Waterleau's and Wasser Arame's commitment to contribute to the sustainable development of an expanding Senegalese economy. In addition to the equity to be provided by Wasser Arame and Waterleau, the project would call on banks and crowd-funding to raise the necessary capital.

If the project materializes, 100% biodegradable bottles will be used for packaging to reduce the ecological footprint.
