TEXEP Aquaviva: The solar-powered seawater desalination station
The worldwide burning of oil, gas and coal for energy production causes an immeasurable climate problem. Although inexhaustible energy resources such as the sun are available, freshwater production from seawater is mainly done by burning fossil fuels, which causes high CO2 emissions and, as a result of rising costs, drives up water prices. The TEXEP Aquaviva seawater desalination station, powered entirely by solar energy, makes it possible to produce electricity and freshwater in a sustainable, climate-neutral and cost-effective way. The self-sufficient and elegant TEXEP Aquaviva station combines the latest technologies from the fields of solar energy and water desalination to produce electricity and drinking water every day throughout the year.
