Master’s student Januardy Djong (TPM) has reached the finals in the Shell Ideas360 competition, together with Dimas Priawan (University of Twente). They developed the concept and design for the Unipump: a double water pump driven by a set of pedals and a gear. As the Indonesian students are well aware, there is a great need for small-scale irrigation. Their design would allow one person to pump water up to 14 metres, while another person waters the plants. Ideas360 is a global competition for original ideas in the areas of energy, water and food.
