Over 1 billion people suffer from the effects of water scarcity with the vast majority being poor residents of developing countries. Desalting seawater is an excellent potential solution but traditional reverse osmosis (R/O) desalination systems require a connection to a strong electrical grid. However, because developing countries typically lack sufficient electrical grid capacity and cannot afford the capital or time required to build and deploy traditional R/O systems, RML is proposing an innovative solution to this problem - the world’s first wave-driven desalination system (called Wave2O™) that can be deployed quickly, operate completely “off-grid” and supply large quantities of fresh water at competitive cost. As a medium-scale, grid-independent, renewable energy driven water production system, we believe Wave2O™ will have wide-ranging utility in developing countries and island nations outside Europe. Inside Europe, potential markets include the overseas Departments and Territories linked to EU member states (e.g. Canary Islands, New Caledonia, etc.). RML has already been active in several countries and has obtained commitments for pilot-scale Wave2O™ plants in Cape Verde, South Africa and Mauritius. We believe Cape Verde represents the shortest path to commercialization. The pilot location has been already secured and the site assessment studies are expected to start in Q3 2017 financed by the African Development Bank through a $1.0M SEFA (Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa) grant. The purpose of the W2O project will be to build upon the SEFA-funded site assessment studies to determine the economic feasibility of Wave2O™ in Cape Verde and to pave the way for the commercial pilot in 2019. The eventual global deployment of Wave2O™ plants will help create a very competitive European export industry.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "W2O" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
