Toelichting The article descibes a modern version of a floating pumping plant that is driven by the current in which it rests. The design is an improvement compared to already known pumps working on the same principle and could help developing countries to increase their food production. Most of the construction is made of wood and can be built locally in the developing countries. Another advantage of the design is its utilisation of the flow of the river itself to provide the necessary energy to drive the machinery, thus making it independent of expensive fuels or electricity
