ARuba Reverse Osmosis Wind

Publieke samenvatting

Aruba does not possess any natural fresh water resources and produces all of its fresh water through Reverse Osmosis of sea water. Aruba has initiated a Clean Energy Strategy to increase the island's use of renewable energy and decease its dependency on (imported) fossil fuels.

Doelstelling
Contribution to the sustainable development of Aruba, by introducing and investigating an intergrated setup fot the production of both drinking water and electricity.


Korte omschrijving
DOT BV aims to contribute to the sustainable development of Aruba, by introducing and investigating an intergrated setup fot the production of both drinking water and electricity. The setup is based on a direct extraction of sea water which is pressurized by one or multiple on- or offshore wind turbines and directly inserted into a RO facility in combination with the already identified storage possibilities at the Butucu mountain.

Resultaat
A contribution to the sustainable development of Aruba and de Kingdom of the Netherlands. On local level, DOT integrates the drinking water and electricity production of WEB Aruba to a sustainable extend, independent of finite resources.The individual contribution of CO2 emission of the residents of Aruba will therefore be significantly reduced.
