Our solar-powered circulation technology has the ability to significantly improve water quality while reducing the amount of energy and chemicals needed for water treatment.
Dickinson, ND (Vocus) June 9, 2010
SolarBee®, Inc., a manufacturer of solar-powered water circulation equipment for raw, potable and wastewater reservoirs, was named a winner of the 2010 Top 50 Water Companies Competition, sponsored by The Artemis Project™, San Francisco. The competition recognizes innovators who have excelled in key areas of the emerging advanced water technology sector.
SolarBee was selected based on four criteria: technology, intellectual property and know-how, team and market potential.
“SolarBee is extremely pleased to be named to the Top 50 water companies list for the second year in a row,” said Joel Bleth, president and CEO of SolarBee, Inc. “Even in this difficult economy, municipalities are faced with difficult water quality problems and regulatory compliance issues. Our solar-powered circulation technology has the ability to significantly improve water quality while reducing the amount of energy and chemicals needed for water treatment. And, we have funding options in place to help municipalities avoid the initial capital expense.”
The solar-powered, floating circulators operate day and night with a low-voltage motor and on-board battery system for continuous, energy-efficient water quality improvement in all types of reservoirs. In lakes and raw water reservoirs, SolarBee circulators prevent and control harmful blue-green algae blooms (cyanobacteria). By actively and completely mixing potable water storage tanks, SolarBee mixers help ensure uniform distribution of disinfectant, eliminate thermal stratification and prevent stagnation and short-circuiting. In wastewater lagoons, SolarBee mixers reduce high energy costs, supplying most of the mixing energy required and reducing the hours that the aeration system must operate.
If you are attending AWWA ACE ’10, please visit SolarBee at booth #1541. SolarBee circulators also will be featured at the AWWA New Product Technology Showcase.
SolarBee Inc., a division of Medora Environmental Inc., develops, installs and services solar-powered water circulation equipment to help solve water-quality problems in lakes and raw water reservoirs, potable and recycled water storage tanks, wastewater lagoons, storm-water ponds, estuaries, and other reservoirs. Introduced in 2001, the long-distance circulators can move up to 10,000 gallons per minute from depths of more than 100 feet and have been proven in thousands of installations worldwide.
