WorldWater Winning Bidder for Project Philippines

WorldWater Corp. has signed a contract after winning a bid to supply solar power in the Philippines.

PENNINGTON, New Jersey – May 21, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] The company will power a battery charging station as an experiment for the Philippine Department of Energy, supplying power for a community of 1000 in the Southern island of Mindanao, according to Quentin T. Kelly, Chairman and CEO of the solar engineering and water management engineering company. “We will demonstrate our capability to charge this one station,” said John Herrman, President of WorldWater (Phils.) “Then expect to follow up with many more battery stations among the islands which the DOE is planning on funding for provinces.” Misamis Oriental, the province to be serviced first, is an agricultural area in central Mindanao, Herrman said. WorldWater is already working on three projects in the Philippines, Kelly said, performing a hydrogeological study on several islands as first phase of a US$52 million signed agreement to irrigate sections of all the main islands, using the company’s powerful new AquaMax(TM) hybrid solar pumping systems, supplying water to communities in the island province of Cebu and supplying solar electricity to rural communities in the northern island of Luzon.
