SCOPE ASIA Timor supports Water purification Systems from Switzerland in developing innovative clean drinking water solutions that fit with the Timorese cultural, economic and technological environment.Timor-Leste has abundant water reserves, but it is currently dependent on bottled drinking water imported by 90% mainly from neighboring countries. Timor-Leste has weak industrial capacity in the water sector; the demand of safe drinking water is expected to increase dramatically due to the fast growth rate of the population.
Trunz Water Systems has converted the vision of a simple self-sufficient water treatment system into practice.
The water purification system from Switzerland, the unit TWM001 is complete with a diaphragm feed pump, automatic back flushing of the ultra-filtration membrane and controls. It is a perfect solution mainly for camps, schools, clinics, hotels, little villages etc. The system is very compact, easy to install and to maintain. A first pilot water project was realized in Canossa Comoro , Dili Timor Leste. The funds from Timor Foundation brought this unique solution into reality: for the school of Canossa Comoro and its 4'500 students.
