Publication Date January 13, 2021
From Belgium
Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 3-4 - Commercial Scale Up / Multiple commercial Applications

The solution aims at providing safe drinking water to rural communities of 200 to 2000 people in emerging countries. Its design makes it durable, sustainable and require little maintenance.. Thanks to 8 solar panels, the water is pumped from boreholes or wells and flows through a treatment line that eliminates the particles in the water and add a specific amount of chlorine to make the water potable. After this step, the water quality respects the WHO's bacteriological recommendations for drinking water. Then, a 8 m3; water tank at height allows water distribution in the absence of sunlight. A remote data management system sends water and energy production data to the cloud and gives information on the maintenance needs so that local technicians can respond immediately if needed.
