Development of FreshWaterMill

For St. Eustatius water supply is of eminent importance and as the island is striving to become 100% sustainable for energy and water production they are looking for a water supply system of about 200 m3/day.

SolteQ Energy has developed FreshWaterMill, a hydraulic windmill that efficiently converts wind energy into high pressure. This high pressure is used to drive a reverse osmosis desalination installation. Excess energy, that the reverse osmosis cannot use, is converted into electricity. So there is no grid connection necessary, but the system can, if applicable, connected to the grid system. The Energy and Water Company Stuco likes to receive a feasibility report of installing the FreshWaterMill in order for them to have an overall grasp of what such a project would mean.
