DOE Waves to Water Concept Stage Winners

Sea Power Ltd in collaboration with lead company MarkZero Prototypes LLC are CONCEPT Stage winners in the USA DOE funded Wave-to-Water challenge!

Our team proposed a concept of a desalination system that uses wave energy alone and a new transportable version of the Seapower Platform to provide clean drinking water for disaster recovery and coastal communities.  The modular system, known as the  MZSP Freshwater Production System, uses a series of high pressure, direct acting pumps to feed into a Reverse Osmosis plant on board the device.

The next stage will involve refining the idea using further numerical modelling, detailed design, and laboratory/field testing.
