Precision landing: As planned, the container was loaded with 14 CloudFisher fog collectors with the help of the VRPE team on 19 December 2019 in Hohenbrunn. These collectors were specially configured by Peter Trautwein for the WasserStiftung for use in the Bolivian highlands. The container is now starting its long journey across the Atlantic and is expected to land in Chile in early February 2020. The CloudFishers will then be transported on to Bolivia. Starting in April, Peter Trautwein will start the construction work with the support of the Bolivian NGO Instituto de Capacitación del Oriente (ICO) and local craftsmen on site.
