For nearly 15 years, Eole Water team has been mobilized around the development of the WMS1000 wind turbine. This technology was designed around three major pillars:
Giving a sustainable access to safe drinking water
Unlike wells or boreholes, water will always be present in the air. The constraint was to design a reliable technology that can create and collect the water. Thanks to its technical expertise and its high quality components, the WMS1000 wind turbine allows anyone installed in remote areas to get to access to safe water for a period of twenty years. The device is capable of producing up to 1200 liters of water per day.
Operating in a full autonomy
The WMS1000 Wind Turbine was designed to produce water without any external power source. Wind is the only engine. With an installed capacity of 30kW and using air as a source of water, the WMS1000 Wind Turbine is perfectly adapted to supply remote areas completely devoid of existing infrastructures.
Eole Water had to offer an innovative technology in line with current requirements related to sustainable development. Wind power is the only source of energy needed to run the water production turbines. There are no CO2 rejections, not pumping in groundwater or surface water sources. The environmental impact is practically nil.
How it works
Wind enters through intake vents around the nose cone of the
mid-sized turbine and is then heated by a generator to become steam. The
steam is compressed, which causes moisture to collect. It’s then
condensed and the water is sent through pipes inside the turbine tower
and into stainless steel tanks for filtration and purification. The hot
air is blown out of the nacelle by a heat exchanger and air extractor.
