Endress+Hauser supports Mozambique water project to celebrate production of the millionth Promag flowmeter

Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG in Reinach, Switzerland, is one of the world's biggest providers of modern industrial flowmeters for liquid, gas and steam. In May this year, the number of magmeters sold passed the million mark!

From as long ago as the 1960s, Endress+Hauser has been active in flow measurement. However, the real breakthrough came in the mid 1970s when Endress+Hauser geared its business strategy towards environmental technology, entering the water & wastewater market.
Water of life

One of the main areas of use for electromagnetic flowmeters is water management, so it seems fitting that to celebrate its success, Endress+Hauser is supporting a water project in Mozambique. Today, there are more than a billion people in the world, who still have no access to clean drinking water. The Swiss development organisation Helvetas describes the fair distribution of ever-dwindling water reserves without endangering the Earth's ecological balance as “one of the biggest challenges facing the 21st century”.

The primary aim of the project is the lasting improvement of the rural drinking water supply and sanitation in an area with about 300,000 inhabitants. The activities tie in with Helvetas’ 25 years of experience in Mozambique. Working together with villagers and the authorities, disintegrated wells are rebuilt, silted-up boreholes cleared and faulty pumps replaced. To ensure the provision of drinking water in the long-term, the population has been involved from the outset in all stages of the project.

The millionth Promag flowmeter has been placed in Endress+Hauser’s production centre in Cernay, France.
