Profitability of a solar powered desalination station

23.06.2023 - An investment for a sustainable future

Discover how Aquaviva, a solar-powered seawater desalination station, offers not only reliable access to freshwater supply, but also provides an autonomous source of green energy, generated with photovoltaic technology. The state-of-the-art desalination station provides on top a lucrative investment opportunity.

Taking as example the Aquaviva AQV-WD22000 station, its freshwater production capacity it up to 22’000 liters per day. If we look at a time window of 20 years and assume an availability of 95% (during which the station is actively producing water), we end up with a total freshwater production of over 150’000 m³.

Calculating the profitability of the investment, by taking the initial cost of 139’900 EUR, assuming an inflation rate of 2% and a water price of 2 EUR per m3, the break-even point would be reached after 10 years and an internal rate of return (IRR) of over 7% could be achieved within that calculation period, paving the way for significant returns in the years that follow. If the rentability of the investment is not a priority, the water price can be significantly below 2 EUR, still allowing a payback of the initial investment over the lifespan.

The Aquaviva water station is a revolutionary solution, helping the water industry and our global society in the challenges of climate change and water scarcity.
