• New company's first project -- Supplying 25 mobile MaxPure® systems for use by the US Army in Iraq -- is completed and shipped
PENNINGTON, NJ, Apr. 27, 2009 -- Quentin T. Kelly has acquired the name of "WorldWater & Solar Technologies" (WWST) plus the technology, inventory, equipment and patents relating to Mobile MaxPure®, the proprietary solar water pumping and purification system.
With the purchase, Mr. Kelly assumes the titles of CEO and Chairman of WWST as a new private company, incorporated in Delaware. The new company is headquartered in its predecessor company offices in Pennington, NJ.
Its initial contract of supplying 25 Mobile MaxPure® solar pumping and purification units for use by a US Army combat team aiding Iraqi civilians along the Tigris River has been completed and shipped as scheduled the week of Apr. 20, 2009. Each Mobile Max unit generates up to 3.5 kW of solar electric power and can pump and purify 30,000 gallons of water per day, thus enabling some 150,000 persons to drink clean water from the heavily polluted and contaminated Tigris. The units have battery banks and are operational 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, delivering water for approximately one cent ($0.01) per gallon.
"Mobile MaxPure® represents a vital change in health and life for potential millions," Mr. Kelly said. "It is currently already operating in Iraq's Euphrates River Valley under the auspices of the US Marines, in Darfur, Sudan and in Ethiopian refugee camps, and there are pending contracts with other governments in Africa and Asia.
"Additionally, these units are ideal for combating disaster situations following hurricanes, earthquakes, floods etc. for First Responders who will have immediate access to electric power, water pumping and purification and satellite communications. The Mobile MaxPure® units are 7 foot cubes, robust and portable, able to be transported to site by pickup truck, boat or helicopter and operational in minutes after arrival on site."
"We now have a field-proven product which means every village and hamlet in the world can have clean water and power. Clean water means better health, better health means more productivity and productivity leads to self-sustaining lives and economies. That's the life- transforming impact of Mobile MaxPure®," Mr. Kelly stated.
WorldWater & Solar Technologies is a private company specializing in proprietary solar-driven water pumping and purification systems, mainly through its Mobile MaxPure® technology and product lines, which can produce an average of 30,000 gallons of potable water daily from freshwater sources, using solar power backed by an embedded battery bank.
