NEW YORK, USA: SwissINSO Holding Inc. announced the completion of the installation of its first solar water purification unit. The unit will be redeployed in the field in the next six to eight months after it has served as a showcase for interested parties, customers, and potential distributors.
These units, named KRYSTALL, combine exclusive membrane technology with state of the art photovoltaic panels to achieve the first truly green solution to significant drinking water shortages. Fully powered by solar energy, each unit is capable of converting 100,000 liters of brackish water and 50,000 liters of seawater per day into high-quality drinking water.
This breakthrough is possible thanks to the use of a patented membrane technology that relies on a series of circular membrane plates. This proprietary method effectively minimizes pressure on the pumps and membranes, thus requiring less energy than other systems and allowing the unit to operate solely using solar power.
In conjunction with the installation of the KRYSTALL unit, SwissINSO is hosting a product launch event for members of the press as well as customers on April 22nd in Lausanne, Switzerland. The solar purification unit will be fully functional at the event and guests will have the opportunity to receive a detailed explanation on the process.
SwissINSO President Michel Gruering said: “We’re very pleased to have our unit up and running here so its capabilities can be witnessed first-hand. We have developed a mobile, self-sufficient, renewable-energy solution to one of the world’s most pressing problems – access to clean drinking water. We’re excited to be bringing this solution to market and are looking forward to the launch event on April 22nd.”
