WorldWater & Solar Technologies

WorldWater wanted to create a water purification system to deliver reliable power and clean water where traditional sources are unavailable, compromised, too expensive or environmentally unfriendly. They designed a raw idea for the system, but needed a product that could be manufactured to meet both weight and size restrictions. That’s where The EF Precision Group came in.

Overview

According to Water.org, close to 1 billion people across the world lack access to safe drinking water – that’s approximately 1 in 9 people. Furthermore, more than 840,000 people die each year from a water related disease, which is more than the entire population of San Francisco. And experts predict that both population growth and global warming will likely boost these totals in future decades.

The EF Precision Group, a world-class, consultative manufacturer that was founded in 1977, and WorldWater, an international Project Developer that focuses on various engineering technology and products, believes one solution for this global issue could be found in combining solar power and filters.

 

Strategy

WorldWater wanted to create a water purification system to deliver reliable power and clean water where traditional sources are unavailable, compromised, too expensive or environmentally unfriendly. They designed a raw idea for the system, but needed a product that could be manufactured to meet both weight and size restrictions. That’s where The EF Precision Group came in.

 

Tactics

The EF Precision Group designed and built two versions of the desired product. The first version produced 30,000 gallons of fresh drinking water per day, whereas the second, which was half the size of the first, produced 10-12,000 gallons.

The EF Precision Group provided all of the engineering design, including the software, electrical, and mechanical hardware. It provided, built, machined, procured and fabricated the entire product to the desired specifications of WorldWater.

 

Results

The product that resulted was The Mobile MaxPure® (MMP), a fully integrated, turnkey solar solution designed to pump, purify and desalinate water. The MMP provides auxiliary power and communications. It is a mobile, self-powered, off-grid system that does not require a connection to the electric grid nor a constant supply of diesel fuel.
