A solar-powered, self-sustaining device producing safe water from non-drinkable water source

Designed to capture and concentrate solar rays using a sphere coupled with a mirror, HELIO cleans the water using the solar distillation process, which evaporates water molecules, re-condensate it, re-mineralize it and deliver safe, drinking water.

HELIO doesn’t require any other energy source than solar energy. Low maintenance, HELIO doesn't need any sort of chemicals to deliver clean water and generates no waste. 100% self-sufficient, it was conceived for places having access to a water source such as sea, rivers, wells or brackish ponds which may be unsafe for human consumption. Delivered in a box, easy to transport, install and operate, HELIO is a solution dedicated to populations living in remote locations : villages or Islands, where alternative solutions are not viable options because they are too costly or complex. The combination of multiple systems can allow isolated places to easily provide pure and safe water to its local population at minimal cost and with no environmental impact.
