Water Above Ground

Ndandini Water Projects

The company’s product range goes beyond just water storage tanks and extends into school furniture, transport pallets, material handling products & road barriers among many others.

Our patented well liner, Permawell, is used to line hand-dug shallow wells of one meter diameter and depths of up to ten meters. Traditionally, rural communities have relied on hand-dug shallow wells for their water needs. Materials used to line these wells rust and erode in a short time, leading to water contamination and well collapse.

In addition, concrete wells can take up to forty weeks to construct, using materials that are difficult to source and requiring a skilled mason.

Our Permawell solution came about through a request by a major UN agency working in South Sudan to develop a specialized well that will withstand loose soils and is easy to construct. Permawell resolves these issues with a simple construction of two semi-circular wells which are bolted together to make an open cylinder.

A Permawell can be installed in a few days by unskilled labor and is long-lasting, sturdy and safe.
