1B people suffer from water scarcity and the vast majority live in coastal areas in developing countries. Seawater desalination is an excellent potential solution, but it requires a connection to a strong and reliable electrical grid.
Because our target customers typically lack sufficient grid capacity and cannot afford the capital or time required to build and deploy grid-connected systems, Resolute Marine has devised a unique solution to this problem
the world’s first wave-driven desalination system (Wave2O™) that can be deployed quickly, operate completely “off-grid” and supply large quantities of clean fresh water at competitive cost. Wave2O provides access to low carbon energy to millions of people living in rural and isolated communities. Each plant will produce 4,000 m3/day of fresh water, enough to cover the needs of 40,000 people and reduce CO2 emission CO2 by 4,346 tons/year, the equivalent of taking 936 cars off the road. Wave2O provides access to low carbon energy to millions of people living in rural and isolated communities. In recognition of our work in this field, Wave2O has won many awards, including the MIT Solve award in 2018.
