Clean water is of vital importance in Yemen, one of the world’s most water-scarce countries. Long distances to reach the water supply, the polluting and expensive operation of pumps and the risk of infections such as cholera caused by contaminated drinking water are part of the daily routine for the people of Yemen. The Yemeni government has now started a program for a sustainable water supply.
Fish, sea, salt, diesel – and cowshed. Along with the typical port smells, there is an odor that wafts through the air of Europe’s largest deep-sea port that you wouldn’t expect to find here. Away from the huge container ships just a few meters from Rotterdam’s port wall is the world’s first-ever floating farm. This one-of-a-kind sustainable project has 32 resident cows, and also a floating PV system that provides a low-cost energy supply.
If PV systems are connected to the Internet via mobile data using SMA Data Manager M and the Sunny Tripower CORE1, the data consumption may exceed the booked data tariff under certain circumstances. An update and an Internet flat rate will help.
