The second INDIA-H2O consortium meeting was held in Delft, in September 2019, and was hosted by our partner IHE Delft. The consortium discussed each work package in details and great progress was made. Many thanks to IHE Delft for excellent organisation of the meeting, and their fantastic set up and facilities.

OASEN kindly took the time to speak to the consortium and provided us with a guided tour of their water treatment plant in Gouda.

Our next consortium meeting will be in Pantnagar, India and this will be hosted by our partner Govind Ballabh Pant University, in March 2020.

Next up is our partner Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA). PSA is formally considered by the European Commission as a European Large Scientific Installation and it is also the largest and most complete R+D centre in the World devoted to solar thermal concentrating systems.

PSA’s location has been used for many movies and TV series, from Spaghetti Western Movies, Sergio Leone’s Trilogy to more recently Game of Thrones (Season 6).

John Lennon also wrote the song “Strawberry Fields Forever while filming “How I won the war” in the nearby Tabernas desert.
