“With our smartTAP Water Dispenser Solution we provide a way to meter, control and collect payment for water where water is shared within a community. By simply holding a tag in front of the dispenser people have easy access to water whenever they want if credits are available. That way we allow for sustainable water provision that enables revenue collection and fair water entitlement. LORENTZ pump systems can be monitored locally with the application PumpScanner and/or remotely, e.g. from a computer, with the service pumpMANAGER/Global which allows for controlling and monitoring any installed system,” explains Claudia Adler Global Marketing and Events Manager.

Africa is an important market for LORENTZ solar water pumps as water supply is a big challenge in many African countries. LORENTZ products work with energy from the sun. As solar irradiation in Africa is consistently high throughout the year this continent is a perfect place to install their systems that work with solar energy. Their products are built for off-grid, rural and often hostile environments. This means they design and build products that are efficient, reliable and simple to service if anything should ever go wrong.

“Through our hundreds of sales partners across Africa our products and solutions are represented at many local and national exhibitions. In February 2020, LORENTZ participated in the Global Off-Grid Solar Forum and Expo that took place in Nairobi, Kenya. The Global Off-Grid Solar Forum and Expo is the premier meeting of the off-grid solar sector providing a unique platform for knowledge exchange, networking and showcasing off-grid solar products and services. We sell our products through a professional network of accredited local sales Partners. LORENTZ Partners are represented in nearly all African countries.

We are constantly working on projects with governments, NGOs and commercial customers across all countries in Africa. Individual projects could be bringing sustainable water solutions to hundreds of thousands of people,” she concludes.

The company designs, develops and manufactures the widest range of solar pumps of any company. Mechanical, electronic and software design is all in-house with a specialized team that have been working in solar pumping for decades. Their design activities are focused in LORENTZ Global Headquarters and Technology Center just outside of Hamburg, Germany.
