Pentair joined The Coca-Cola Company and partners Ericsson, Medshare, Phillips, Solarkiosk and TIGO Rwanda to open the flagship EKOCENTER in Ruhunda, Rwanda. Located outside of the capital of Kigali, the solar-powered site stands to benefit up to 25,000 local residents with access to services that have not been readily available, including improved medical services and purified water. Equipped with two Pentair water purification systems, the site has the capacity to provide up to 20,000 liters (5,283 gallons) of drinking water daily to area residents. Pentair has provided water purification systems for 22 EKOCENTER sites in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and Vietnam, including the site in Rwanda. The units installed to date can deliver up to 50 million liters (13 million gallons) of clean drinking water annually in EKOCENTER communities.
