Water and energy-related equipment supplier Davis & Shirtliff has introduced a battery-free water treatment plant, a move pointing towards environmental sustainability and cost-effectiveness in the water treatment process.
Dubbed ‘Dayliff Battery-less Solar RO plant’, the firm says it is also a move to tap into the fast-growing off-grid zero-emission desalination market.
The system eliminates the need for additional enePlantrgy storage equipment by harnessing power from solar PV panels.
According to the firm’s technical director Philip Holi, the plant is poised to revolutionise solarised water treatment applications.
“With its unique combination of reliability, versatility and cost-effectiveness, this solution paves the way for a new era in the industry, especially for industrial and commercial uses including in industries, education centres, health facilities and residential areas,” Holi said.
“Its capability also empowers users to harness solar power, generator input, or mains power, granting unparalleled versatility and adaptability across diverse environmental conditions.”
He added that the facility minimises downtime in the event of loss of an available power source, ensuring continuous operation and uninterrupted water treatment processes that ensure, especially a commercial water treatment vendor, can maximise the plant’s uptime.
The system also allows an optional inclusion of a monitoring system that adds a layer of intelligence to the plant, to offers critical solutions for adapting to climate change and improving water security.
“Such advanced monitoring system provides real-time oversight of critical parameters such as energy consumption, run hours, water production and even enables remote control functionality,” Holi said.
The company says the prevailing global transition towards renewable energy sources has spurred a pressing need for innovative solutions in water treatment applications.
Research firm, Research And Markets in its ‘Desalination: Off Grid Zero Emission 2018-2028’ report, projects the green desalination market will rapidly grow to $35 billion (Sh4.8 trillion) by 2028
