Solar Water Plc is helping solve the planet’s water crisis, with a zero-environmental impact and affordable system.

HOW IT WORKS

Concentrated Solar Power Desalination plants combine technologies that provide a sustainable approach to seawater desalination using only the sun as the energy source.

THE PROCESS

1

Seawater Intake

Seawater is piped from the sea into the stainless steel solar dome, via a
natural pre-treatment intake system, to create freshwater from
seawater.

2

Solar Energy Concentration

In order to generate the necessary levels of thermal energy required,
solar power is concentrated using an arrangement of heliostat mirrors
and pioneering 5th Gen Solar Concentrators.

3

From Seawater to Freshwater

The dome acts as a receiver; inside the saline seawater is heated and processed, to produce saturated steam. This is then cooled and condensed into fresh solar water.

4

Fresh Solar Water

The fresh solar water can then be used urban development, agriculture, industry and tourism and can undergo secondary treatment as necessary for drinking water.

5

Brine Processing

The brine can be processed into valuable mineral product streams, which can be commercialised, sustainably protecting surrounding marine environments.

Output Levels of Fresh Solar Water and Salt & Minerals

The output of fresh water from the Solar Water domes will provide many thousands of cubic metres (millions of litres) of fresh water per day, which is millions of Cubic metres per year (billions of litres).

The brine bi-product can be processed to produce high purity salt and other minerals such as high purity Potassium Sulphate, Magnesium Hydroxide and Calcium Carbonate.

Many factors affect the final model such as (but not exclusively) levels of solar irradiation, salinity of the sea water, local labour costs and skills, cost of steel, concrete, shipping, taxes and accessibility of site.

Volumes, costings and output prices will be determined on a case by case basis, following a feasibility and environmental study.
