The estimated cost of an irrigation & micro electricity system is $1,286,000 under normal circumstances in East Africa. The probable cost will be double or triple because no project like this has ever been accomplished:
The range of $1,286,000to $3,850,000 of Irrigation Costs will be borne by private investment. The cost of the electricity is $.033/Kwh. The market price of electricity in remote areas of Africa is well over $.15/Kwh.
Where does all this electricity come from? the Congo River near Inga.
The new patented pipeline, called HUG require little or no huge water pumps. This water pipeline, encourages a laminar flow with little or no friction. This means a water transfer system in Africa would go for hundreds of kilometers with fewer pumps
The traditional method is a straight pipeline, which develops a turbulent flow, caused by the friction on the inside lining of this pipeline.
This old pipeline system requires several expensive large dimension water pumps and water reservoirs along its pathway with a maximum length of less than 78 km.
HUG is a patented water transfer system that will literally change the face of our world as we know it. Imagine new fresh water delivered over 1000 km in a HUG ocean pipeline.
Objective: to build an ocean-going pipeline longer than 1000 km
With a pipeline built on the ocean floor, the cost would be close to $3.6 million/mile.
Large dimension pumps adds to the cost (every 70 km), which is only possible if a reservoir can be built on nearby land: the cost of $6.4 million/mile.
Now let us eliminate the large dimension pumps with a HUG: the cost is reduced to less than $1million/mile. What a bargain!
What we call violent conflict should be seen for what it is: poverty hunger, water scarcity & despair. Most of all we need to subdue our fears and cynicism and provide HOPE. We need science and technology.
