Eole Water, a French company specialising in the design of water production systems, is presenting its new product called the WMS1000 Wind Turbine at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) in Abu Dhabi this week.
Eole Water technology is capable of producing potable water from humidity contained in the air, with a wind turbine or photovoltaic panels. This equipment can produce up to 1,500 litres per day of pure drinking water in normal conditions and 250 litres per day in remote desert conditions such as those found in the Sahara or the UAE. Eole Water says that it is the only technology able to produce 1000 litres of drinking water per day and up to 30 Kw of electricity.
The company claims that the equipment can produce its own electricity, which is used to transform the humidity into liquid and give fresh drinking water in remote or isolated areas onshore or offshore, for workers and staff, or even clients for instance in eco hotels or green buildings. Eole said that the equipment can be removed easily.
“The WMS1000, an innovative technology for the future, offers great opportunities for economic and sustainable developments of dry or isolated areas, with no water or electricity,” according to a company statement.
Eole Water is said to be a complementary solution to existing sources of drinking water supplies in Gulf Countries.
SPIE Oil & Gas Services, a company established in 22 countries, is committed to a partnership with Eole Water in order to promote and implement the WMS1000.
Access to drinking water has become a major challenge for economic development policies worldwide, especially in Gulf countries. It is estimated that by 2050, three quarters of water resources of the region will be depleted.
