March 2021 – Colombo – As a pioneering sustainable infrastructure development conglomerate with a vision to become the leader in water stewardship and environmental engineering, Arinma Holdings introduces innovative water technologies to Sri Lanka, meeting the need for clean drinking water in the country. As an initial phase towards this goal, the company has introduced two products to the market targeted at industrial sector businesses and establishments in drought areas and areas with impoverished water quality, in Sri Lanka.
The Hans® Premium Water filter is one of the world’s best technologies available for water purification. Designed under the WHO guidelines for portable water, it removes up to 99.9% of contaminants in water by incorporating a 4-stage filtering system. Its mineralization process ensures pH balanced water with the right mineral water content with better taste. Furthermore, it provides an output of 11,300L per day within an average of a 10-12hr operation. Hans® Premium Water contains a self-cleaning technology and is a compact, plug and play water purification system with a low cost per litre. Moreover, a user can conveniently monitor the quality and status of the water through its bespoke Hans® Premium Water mobile app. The Hans® Premium Water filter is an ideal investment for industrial use in the hospitality and health sectors where there is a demand for large quantities of clean drinking water.
SOURCE™ Hydropanels is the world’s first renewable drinking water system and is a sustainable water technology that harnesses solar power to extract endless volumes of clean and safe drinking water from the air, developed entirely off-grid without an external source of water or power. The pure water generated is mineralized with magnesium and calcium to achieve the ideal taste profile and correct pH value for drinking. SOURCE™ Hydropanels optimizes and monitors the quality of the water through sensor technology and can generate an output of 2-5L per day, making it cost-effective in comparison to packaged mineral water.
“As a sustainable infrastructure development company, we envision developing a climate-resilient, future-ready Sri Lanka. In achieving this purpose, harnessing the power of Digital Technologies and Artificial Intelligence, we partner with global innovators and companies that bring the best technology to Sri Lanka, to meet the demands and needs to fulfil the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030, with a focus on the water, energy and medical sectors. We identified both The Hans® Premium Water and SOURCE™ Hydropanels as two innovative solutions that address the demand for clean water in our island.” Said Nuwan Gamage, Head of Corporate Affairs and Communications, Arinma Holdings.
As part of the Group’s CSR and sustainability initiatives, Arinma Holdings installed a Hans Premium Water purification system and two SOURCE™ Water hydro panels at the Ruhunu Maha Kataragama Devalaya recently. The Kataragama Maha Devalaya is one of the most visited religious sites in Sri Lanka, visited by thousands of devotees daily. The Hans® Premium Water purification system and the SOURCE™ Hydropanels will generate pure water which will be used in the daily venerations of the Kataragama temple and for drinking purposes for the multitudes of devotees and visitors.
