TEDxBinnenhof - Floris de Vos - A portable water drill for the remotest areas

Floris de Vos (Leiden) is the director of the Foundation Holland Water Goes Africa, established in 2008. He is also the inventor of this simple water drilling unit.After working as a tour guide on Borneo Malaysia, Floris started working in the offshore oil and gas industry. During a nine months stay in a hospital one of his doctors challenged him to find a cheap and durable solution for a water well for a project in Gambia and Kenya. Floris set up a foundation and came up with the idea of the FLOFLO. This method for drilling wells is very old but little used today. The foundation established two African companies which currently implement this simple but effective method of drilling with great success.@ TEDx Binnenhof 2012
