edotco launches Clean Water initiative in Cambodia with first of its kind solar pump

Phnom Penh, 31 December 2020 – edotco (Cambodia) Co., Ltd. (“edotco Cambodia”), an integrated telecommunications infrastructure services company in Cambodia has launched its “Tower To Community Clean Water” project in Kampong Speu province as part of wider green initiatives under its corporate social responsibility programme.

The innovative solar power water pump will extract underground water and transfer it to a large storage tank to ensure the community of Raong Masin Village in Oral district’s Tasal Commune – home to more than 300 families – has an eco-friendly source of clean water.

“At edotco we are committed to improving quality of living and to environmental responsibility. We have provided this innovative solar power water pump in this community where people live with limited access to water. “Where electricity is scarce, solar can be a part of the answer, providing an easy solution to water shortage problems to supply potable drinking water, as well as for irrigating crops and watering livestock,” said Phillip Wong, chief regional officer, ASEAN North, at edotco Group.

The system uses four solar panels to power the unit for up to six hours per day, pumping 3sqm of water per hour, which equates to 15-18sqm per day. The storage tank has a capacity of 5,000 litres.

A main advantage of a solar water pump is that it uses sunlight, minimising dependency on electricity or diesel, and brings zero cost to the community.

The Tower to Community Clean Water project is part of edotco’s core sustainability initiatives, which comprise two main pillars – community enrichment and environmental responsibility. These are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDGs), and along with Cambodia have also been successfully implemented in other environmental programmes in Bangladesh and Malaysia. The company believes that a sustainable future relies on a healthy environment and an enriched community that realises its potential.

This green clean water initiative is part of edotco’s continued commitment to improving the quality of life of the communities living near its tower sites. The self-sustaining eco-friendly clean water system signifies meaningful efforts to enrich the quality of the environment and the lives of community members in Kampong Speu province.

In building shared connectivity for a sustainable future, edotco is championing the way by providing world-class telecoms infrastructure services and solutions that work in harmony with communities and the wider environment.
