WGS commences initial development of residential units

Water Generating Systems has authorized product development partner, Trident Maritime Systems – IMECO Division, to commence initial development of the WGS 100 residential units.

Trident Maritime Systems will concentrate initial efforts on the development of the Stand Alone AWH Unit.

It will include a water purification and storage system that can be integrated into the home plumbing system. At ambient air temperature of 80°F and 60% relative humidity, the WGS-100 will generate 50 gallons of pure potable water daily.

WGS expects to begin production of the unit later this year.
