Light weight platform solutions

In recent years many regions around the world face shortage in sweet water reservoirs due to excessive extraction of water for food and bio raw material production needs.  Loss of water from lakes, dams and reservoirs resulted in an agricultural production loss and introduced water extraction restriction measures in urban regions. Reducing the amount of water lost to evaporation would improve water security. The only way to close the gap between natural supply and human needs of water is to improve the efficiency of water logistics and suitable water storage reservoirs for drinking water. Covering of, dams, lakes or reservoirs will minimized the rate of evaporation. This shadowing could be done by floating platforms equipped with photovoltaic panels. Such a technology will generate green and clean energy and save the water in arid and semiarid region.

Our concept:

  • high swimming stability of the platforms supported by several air chambers
  • low cost by using lightweight construction
  • easy transport and assembly
  • suitable for:
      • protecting water from evaporation out of hydropower barrier lakes, potable / agro / industrial water ponds
      • solar power generation: Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), Photovoltaics (PV)
      • large scale floating hydroculture / aquaculture, algae production
      • steady floating large scale land reclamation
      • desalination of extreme saline water lakes
