SHEPS™ is a solar-powered, stand-alone, user friendly system designed to pump, filter, purify and desalinate water, all from renewable power. The system utilizes proprietary and patented technologies.

Key features include:

  • Man-portable, rolling configuration able to be carried by 1-2 people and transported in a standard SUV or Humvee vehicle
  • Options include one container of direct solar to water purification, with an optional additional container providing solar-charged battery backup, hybrid-power inputs, inverter and power outlets.
  • Total package comes with (4) 120w foldable solar panels and 1.25 kWh of integrated battery storage providing*:
    • 100 watts power for 10+ hours; 1500w peak power; 3kW surge enabled
    • Reverse osmosis water purification producing 18-20 gph of drinking water per hour. Operation from solar provides 6 hours of operation, extended operation kit charged by solar provides 13 hours of run time, and 24 hours of operation is enabled by external power input, or
    • Combination of water and power output
  • Accepts power from integrated solar and / or external sources such as generator, wind or vehicle power to extend the hours of operation
  • No gasoline, diesel or external power source (other than the sun) required
  • AC / DC power available for use with purchase of the extended operation kit
  • Ruggedized – military approved
  • RO system treats water up to 45,000 PPM TDS (seawater)
  • Easy to set up and use; fully operational in under 15 minutes after arrival onsite
  • Case size suitable for carry-on baggage
  • Environmentally friendly, producing low noise and no pollution during operation

*Assumes 5 peak-equivalent solar hours; fewer solar hours will result in decreased operating time and output. Auxiliary generator and vehicle power input is built in to extend operation as needed.
