HELIO is a system for producing drinking water from sea water or any type of non-drinking water, which is only used with renewable energies available on site. Economical, quick to install and adapts to your needs, HELIO can be one of the best drinking water production solutions that combines simplicity and accessibility for all.
HELIO, drinking water for everyone.
Currently, 2.1 billion people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water in their homes (UNICEF). A serious health hazard and the leading cause of death in the world. To solve this problem, Thierry Carlin, CEO of Marine Tech, invented Helio, a pragmatic and sustainable system that produces drinking water from all types of water considered unfit for human consumption, anywhere in the world. and at minimal cost.
Transparent glass spheres, naturally heated by the sun to temperatures above 100 ° C, separate bacteria from drinking water. Its only source of energy is a solar panel that powers the pump that fills the sphere. The system adapts to all types of watercourses consisting of non-potable water (seas, lakes, rivers, ponds). Each sphere can produce up to 10 liters of water per day, which is equivalent to the drinking water needs of a family of five. Has a minimum useful life of 30 years.
Helium is a autonomous, decentralized and inexpensive system It can be easily installed in areas without potable water infrastructure and also in areas affected by natural disasters.
A pilot farm in Saint-Raphaël.
It took three years of research and development to design the system, which was tested in Saint-Raphaël from September to December 2017, on a pilot farm. A large-scale experience that can meet the needs of 25-35 people on its own, guaranteeing a cost less than a liter of mineral water.
