Bold Idea 

Provide access to clean water for remote communities across the globe using low-maintenance, solar-powered pipeline systems and rapid installation techniques.

Summary 
TOHL is increasing water access globally for the one billion people who lack access to a reliable water source. By providing practical, innovative, proprietary fluid logistics services, TOHL is able to lower the costs associated with water infrastructure. One of TOHL's solutions utilizes coiled tubing deployed via helicopter to rapidly connect remote water sources to their destinations. TOHL is also able to capture value in the commercial and industrial sectors. TOHL's first base of operations is in Santiago, Chile, and headquarters are in Atlanta, GA. The founders have a bold vision for global expansion into territories beyond Latin America.
