• Morrell Foundation orders 12 of the WorldWater Portable Units for $900,000 to donate to the U.S. Military for distribution to families in the Euphrates Valley; Each unit can supply 30,000 gallons daily of purified or irrigation water plus electrical power for lights, motors and tools
EWING, NJ, Dec. 10, 2007 -- WorldWater & Solar Technologies Corp. (WWAT), developer and marketer of proprietary high-power solar systems, today announced that the company will ship 12 of its Mobile MaxPure™ solar water and power-supply units for use by farmers and families in the Euphrates Valley of Iraq. The systems have been purchased for $900,000 and are being donated by the Morrell Foundation, an international charitable foundation that provides clean water to people in need. The portable Mobile MaxPure™ systems can each supply 30,000 gallons per day of clean drinking water or irrigation, plus electric power for Iraqi farmers and their families along the Euphrates River.
At the request of the U.S. Marines at Camp Fallujah, WorldWater and Morrell will supply the systems to the Military for assistance to the farmers. Mobile MaxPure™ is a stand-alone, sturdy and robust 7-foot cube that opens with the press of a button, unfolding a solar array which can deliver 3.2 kilowatts of electrical power and, with the Company's patented AquaMax™ controls, can pump and purify up to 30,000 gallons of water daily. The unit can also desalinate brackish or sea water. It will operate from sunshine alone or in combination with a power grid. Mobile MaxPure™ is also equipped with a back-up generator and a battery bank for 24-hour use. Delivery of the Morrell donation of the 12 WorldWater units to the U.S. Military for Iraqi placement was organized and managed by Millennium KI, LLC, a military supply contractor for civil action and humanitarian products and works.
The units are scheduled for pick-up and delivery from WorldWater Headquarters in Ewing, NJ by the U.S. Army on Dec. 15 for immediate air shipment to Baghdad and Marine distribution into the Euphrates Valley.
"The Iraqi farmers do not have reliable power from the electric grid to operate their irrigation pumps or treat their water for drinking," said Quentin T. Kelly, Chairman & CEO of WorldWater & Solar Technologies Corp. "When we received an e-mail from the Marines at Camp Fallujah requesting water purification units, we moved immediately. Morrell and Millennium responded equally. I understand families are drinking directly from the river, which of course is seriously polluted. Within 30 minutes of Max's arrival on site, the people will be able to drink purified water from the river and able to start irrigating crops."
Paul Jeffries, CFO of the Morrell Foundation said, "Dedicated to providing hope and assistance to people across the world, we are so pleased to work with WorldWater & Solar Technologies Corp. and the U.S. Military to provide this equipment, which we believe will be essential in helping to improve the quality of life to residents along the Euphrates River, as well as enabling them to provide basic needs for themselves. Passionate about humanity and helping others, this is an excellent example of the wide variety of programs that Morrell offers to assist people around the world that have been affected by natural disasters, armed conflict or poverty."
