Rendering of desalination plant

Rendering of desalination plant

Pegasos Electra developed “Pegasus desalination device” which uses
solar heat by a new method, as we mentioned in the article “A new

of Pegasus desalination devices.
desalination_plant_02_enThe plant draws water from the sea or a lake and warms up to 80-90 °C,
and makes it to distillated water. (We have to add some mineral to it
for agricultural water or drinkable water.)
Pegasus desalination plant works with solar-heat and consumes no electricity.
