For a number of years SOLAq has been active in the field of development of smart applications of solar driven systems. Its main objective has been to develop alternative solutions for the generation of high quality (drinking) water.
Based on its research and experience in the field of solar driven seawater desalination, SOLAq has designed and developed a cost-effective system that generates clean water from the atmosphere around us. This innovative "WaterWin" system will be able to tap into the market potential of many vast, remote areas that have neither access to usable water reservoirs nor are anywhere near to retrievable seawater. In addition, WaterWin may be of benefit to locations that are encountering environmental problems as a result of excessive disposal of brine (by-product of desalination).
Our current project is a solar powered Atmospheric Water Generation (AWG) device developed in the Netherlands. The system uses solar (thermal) energy and the atmosphere around us to produce clean drinking water. Prototype testing and model validation has been performed and SOLAq is currently seeking partners and financing for a full-scale demonstration project at a location with a relevant climate.
SOLAq at Texel
Previous project which ran from 2010 until 2014. Comprised of a floating parabolic trough concentrated photovoltaic / thermal (CPV/T) system that provided heating for a nearby hotel and swimming pool. Our current clean water production technology is derived partly from knowlegde and experience obtained from the Texel project.
