The Namibian Government has commissioned the University of Namibia and the University of Turku in Finland in a joint initiative to implement the desalination system, MyProperty reported.

The inauguration took place earlier this month at the University of Namibia by H.E. Dr Sam S Nujoma, the founding President of the Republic of Namibia. UNAM Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kenneth Matengu, commented: "The impact we hope to receive through this plant is to contribute to food security and increase energy supply while simultaneously combatting and mitigating the effects of climate change. We can make Namibia green." According to the media statement, the system is among the first desalination plants in the world to operate on 100% renewable energy. It was designed and delivered by a Finnish water tech company called Solar Water Solutions.
