Solar water purification systems donated to Japan

WorldWater & Solar Technologies Inc and Gamesa are donating two solar driven water purification systems, Mobile MaxPure®(MMP), to Japan.

By Renewable Energy Focus staff

The solar water purification systems will aid villages near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant.

One of the MMP solar Units will screen radiation from the pure drinking water it pumps, desalinates and purifies and the other Unit will pump and purify 30,000 gallons of biologically polluted water per day.

The systems are powered by solar charged battery banks embedded in the 7 ft3 structures. Each system opens automatically into a 3.3 kW array for pumping and purifying and/or decontaminating the drinking water plus generating electricity for lights, tools, mobile phone charging etc.
