In line with this endeavour, the company launched new products in categories such as packaged RO water purifiers, skid-mounted water treatment systems and packaged sewage treatment plants.

VWS is a 50:50 Joint Venture between Voltas Ltd. and Dow Chemical Pacific (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (a member of the Dow Group of Companies), bringing together Voltas' 'smart' engineering, brand and marketing strengths, and the Dow Group's advanced water science. VWS works towards providing clean drinking water to people, safe water for process use in industries, and promoting recycling of wastewater.

The company is especially excited about its Voltas Water ATMoffering. The Water ATM is a conveniently located coin or smart card-operated dispenser that can serve pure and safe drinking water, at a mere 10-20p per litre. It aims to relieve men and women from spending hours daily in fetching water, often from ground-water sources that are often contaminated and the origin of water-borne diseases. The Water ATM can be put in place by a local entrepreneur or through a sponsorship model, and the low operating cost makes it a self-sustainable model.With its distinctive features – 8 stages of filtration including reverse osmosis, and reduction of bacteria and virus by 99.99% – Voltas Water ATM is a safe, durable and secure source of purified drinking water for communities and public places.

Commenting on the launch, VWS Spokesperson said, “At Voltas Water, we aim to offer high-performance products that are reliable and of the highest standards. We want to make the process of water purification more economical and environmentally-friendly, by providing point of entry systems to mass treat water before it is distributed to individual lines. Our products have been inspired by the culture of innovation and trust within the Tata and Dow Group."

The new VWS products have been engineered to provide maximum output and performance, along with the lowest-in-class footprint that make them space and cost-efficient. They are distinguished by a 'SmartMonitoring’ feature that helps users to stay connected with the product. Users can monitor the system from any location, using the Voltas Water Smart Monitoring App, and through web access from PCs or tablets. VWS products thus provide real-time data of daily operations, and make servicing much easier. A further edge is the use of FILMTEC™ RO elements, that provide 20% higher flow rate and have lower lifetime costs than many competing products.

Sharad Gollerkeri, Regional Commercial Manager, Water & Process Solutions, Dow India, said, “We are proud to associate with Voltas Water Solutions in the endeavor to provide purified water in a cost-effective proposition. With our joint technical and business expertise we look forward to realising this commitment."
