It is getting warmer and drier on the earth. This means that the shortage of clean drinking water in the world is only growing. A Rotterdam company has come up with the solution to this problem: the Rainmaker. A device that has been specially developed to deliver clean water in areas where it is needed.

The rainmaker attracts air. This air is drawn through a kind of refrigerator. The device then cools the air, bringing the temperature below the dew point. Then water is created immediately. This is collected and stored in a storage tank. In this way more than 5,000 liters of water can be produced every day. 

Jack Kips, project manager at Rainmaker Worldwide, explains that the system can be powered by various energy sources; wind energy, solar energy or from a generator. It is important that the air has a certain humidity. Also read: Innovation from Rotterdam makes water from wind

In recent years, we have worked hard to resolve all teething problems. The Rainmaker has now become a solid device that is ready for production. Kips says that Morocco is the first country to place a large order. ‚ÄúThis is going to be a big customer. They have placed an order for hundreds of Rainmakers. Next month the first machines will go there. "Also read: Innovation from Rotterdam makes water from wind

According to Frans Ringeling, Euro Safety Group, the device is a solution for Morocco. "There is little rain, so the water problem is huge." The World Bank has appointed Morocco as the center for water issues. This means that the country serves as an example for many other African countries. "Morocco is a springboard to sell the Rainmaker in more African countries," said Ringeling.
