Gamesa and WorldWater & Solar Technologies of Princeton will donate two solar-driven water purification systems to Japan to serve people near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

WorldWater manufacturers the Mobile MaxPure systems. Gamesa, a wind turbine manufacturer with operations in Falls Township and Middletown, will help cover the costs of the donation, said WorldWater CEO Quentin Kelly.

The purification systems will run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on solar-charged battery packs. One unit will screen radiation, desalinate and purify up to 3,000 gallons of seawater a day. The other will pump and purify 30,000 gallons of biologically polluted freshwater daily. The systems also can be used to generate electricity for lights, tools and other needs.

Kelly said WorldWater has purification systems in Iraq, Afghanistan, Darfur, Haiti and other parts of the world.
