So, from now onwards the people in these regions will be able to drink pure safe drinking water. Even access to solar power charging and Wi-Fi technology are provided to them at the same time.

The prototype of this water filtration containercentre hub Ekocenter has undergone several phases of testing in Heidelberg, South Africa. It equips a bright red long shipping container of 20 feet (6 m) with covered solar panels

Also a device of Slingshot water purifier container is installed in it for utilizing the vapor compression distillation so that pure and distilled drinking water can be produced and served to the people of different regions

Slingshot was also invented by the President of Deka R&D Dean Kamen. Even he is the guy who has founded Segway as well. Typically, sea container conversion system will be operated with the help of the cow dung for purifying any source of unclean water (sea and river water).
