09 Feb WorldWater & Solar Technologies Provides Solar Powered Water Unit to U.S. State Department
(PRINCETON, NJ – February 5, 2018) – The U.S. State Department has purchased a Mobile MaxPure™ Reverse Osmosis (RO) unit from WorldWater® & Solar Technologies, Inc. (WWST), America’s longest continuing solar technology company. The Mobile MaxPure™ RO unit, a solar-powered water purification system designed to pump, purify, and desalinate water as well as provide clean, renewable power, has been shipped to the island of Curaçao in the Caribbean to promote preparedness and resilience and for immediate use providing energy and power.
WWST’s Mobile MaxPure™ (MMP) units, which are available on the US General Services Administration (GSA), are capable of pumping and purifying freshwater, brackish water, and seawater, providing solar power for running lights, tools, equipment or recharging electronics, and in some cases provide satellite communications, making them ideal for use in emergency situations.
“We are pleased that the US State Department will use our technology for a humanitarian cause,” said Quentin T. Kelly, Chair and CEO of WWST. “Providing solar technology that helps people cope with natural disasters is a key to the work we do here.”
WWST has a longstanding experience in providing disaster relief and to promoting preparedness and resilience in countries around the world, including most recently in Puerto Rico and Haiti.
