The world is facing an increasing water scarcity challenge. Clean fresh water for private, industrial and agricultural purposes is a pre-requisite for life and is in high demand at more and more locations globally.

The two Oslo based companies will integrate their technologies to produce fresh water through desalination based on renewable solar power from entirely ocean floating systems. The floating PV solution is based on Ocean Sun’s unique FPV system of using a proprietary floating hydro-elastic membrane. The FPV solution is scalable, competitive and requires no land area and will be ideal for many locations around the world. The plant is a hybrid and will be supplemented by other power sources and produce between 50 to 100 million liters per day of fresh water delivered through a piping system to shore.

Projects in the Middle East may be the first applications within 24 months.
