PRINCETON, NJ, Apr. 14, 2011 -- Two solar-powered water purification systems will be air-shipped to Japan this week to help the people in villages near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant. The donations were made by WorldWater & Solar Technologies and multinational wind manufacturer Gamesa of Spain.
The Mobile MaxPure® (MMP) units, made by WorldWater & Solar, operate 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, enabled by solar-charged battery banks embedded in the 7-foot cubed structures. One of the donated units will screen radiation from the pure drinking water it pumps, desalinates and purifies. The other unit will pump and purify 30,000 gallons of biologically polluted water per day.
WorldWater is also donating custom trailers for each system to enable ready mobility.
