The companies will embark on the so-called EPC business, which designs plants, procures materials and builds under a contract. Wellthy has an advantage of being able to freely adjust treatment processes and devices that will be incorporated into a system according to the quality of drinking water and water sources.

Myanmar is the third country for the Wellthy’s overseas water treatment-related business, followed by Kenya and Vietnam.

In Myanmar, the companies will use the Yangon River which runs near the city as the water source. The river water will be filtered through hollow fiber membranes for purification and then passed through reverse osmosis membranes for desalination.

As the city has rainy and dry periods, the water quality in the Yangon River, which flows into the Andaman Sea, varies with the season.
