Unique cooperation between Qatar and Sweden provides Gulf States new Swedish environmental technology.

“SolarWave AB, a world leader in sustainable water treatment solutions for remote rural areas and emergencies, is part of a unique agreement between Midroc New Technology and GORD – the Gulf Organisation for Research and Development.

New and revolutionary environmental technology from four Swedish companies will be displayed in a special full-scale facility in Qatars capital Doha. This opportunity may lead to a number of Gulf States choosing Swedish technology in a major investment in sustainable development, and is the outcome of an agreement between Midroc New Technology and GORD, the Gulf Organisation for Research and Development for the six Gulf States of the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council).

– With resources from Qatar and technology from Midrocs portfolio companies, we will be able to showcase new solutions that are sustainable in the long term for our planet and that are possible already today, says Göran Linder, CEO of Midroc New Technology.

The full-scale demonstration facility will be placed in Qatar Science & Technology Park and will contain a number of functions, from living quarters and workplaces to greenhouses. The idea is that one will be able to see all these different technologies together in one place, from the late summer of 2015 onwards.

The GORD Research Organisation is responsible for developing sustainable solutions for the whole of the GCC (Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain). This means that the innovations that will be presented could in time become the standard for all the member states. In an effort to accelerate the introduction of technologies for world improvement, four of Midrocs portfolio companies achieve a unique position.

Solarwave
offers solutions driven by solar energy for water purification and desalination, making it possible to use water that would otherwise be undrinkable. Their compact plants can be as small as a backpack, or big enough to supply thousands of litres per hour.

Heliospectra
offers intelligent lighting systems for greenhouse cultivation that can also be used in extreme environments. In comparison with conventional solutions, less energy and water is consumed, there is no wastage, crop yield is increased – and the crops taste better.

Powercell
has developed fuel cell technology which converts diesel and hydrogen into electricity highly efficiently. This allows energy consumption to be reduced by 50 percent while completely eliminating exhaust gases and toxic emissions.

Air to Air
has technology for both heat and moisture exchange, giving the best possible control of indoor climate with the least possible energy consumption.

The two parties to the agreement are:
– Gulf Organisation for Research and Development (GORD), a non-profit governmental organisation whose purpose is to promote environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions in Qatar and the countries included in the GCC, Gulf Cooperation Council.
– Midroc New Technology, a member of the Midroc Europe Group, is a venture capital company that invests in groundbreaking technologies with global relevance in the environmental and renewable energy fields.

Rain water harvesting system installed in Morogoro, Tanzania.

SolarWave and Midroc collaborated to install a rain water harvesting system as part of  a Good Water CSR project at Vikenge Primary School in Morogoro.

The installation of such a system mitigates the problem of water shortage by collecting rain water during the rain seasons to fill the water storage tanks from which the water will be pumped to fill the an overhead tank at times when supply form the main source is failing.

Christer Olsson and Rikard Sjöqvist who participated in and won an internal competition at Midroc,  with the prize being installation of the system, were in charge of seeing the project through. The village council were very pleased with the successful installation of the rain water harvesting system and made Christer and Rikard honorary citizens of the village. “An experience of a lifetime” say Christer and Rikard.
