Installing short-term (off-grid) solar-hybrid water treat­ment sys­tems to solve the prob­lem with drink­ing water in Myko­laiv

Bore­al Light GmbH is a young Berlin based com­pa­ny spe­cial­ized on renew­able ener­gy solu­tion for water treat­ment facil­i­ties. The ompa­ny designs and man­u­fac­tures afford­able solar water desali­na­tion sys­tems for off-grid com­mu­ni­ties around the globe. Sys­tems man­u­fac­tured by Bore­al Light are capa­ble of deliv­er­ing high qual­i­ty hygiene drink­ing, irri­ga­tion, fish farm and san­i­ta­tion water from any kind of high saline and pol­lut­ed water resources. Pow­ered ful­ly by solar, sim­plic­i­ty of the design and afford­abil­i­ty of the cost of the sys­tems man­u­fac­tured by Bore­al Light are the three great com­pe­tences the com­pa­ny is proud of.

SDG 6: “Ensure the avail­abil­i­ty and sus­tain­able man­age­ment of water and san­i­ta­tion for all” and SDG 7: “Ensure access to afford­able, reli­able, sus­tain­able and mod­ern ener­gy for all”


Install 5 solar water desali­na­tion sys­tems in Myko­laiv and cov­er a large part of the city’s water demand with no addi­tion­al bur­den falling on the pow­er grid, which was heav­i­ly dam­aged by the war and is there­fore in dan­ger of col­laps­ing


Short-term off-grid solar-hybrid water treat­ment sys­tems pow­ered ful­ly by solar with a recov­ery rate of up to 90% (from 100l of pol­lut­ed water the sys­tem can get up to 90l of clean drink­ing water, which is unprece­dent­ed rate for reverse osmo­sis sys­tems)
