i-FWC installed at El Pinillo, Gran Canaria
This week the installation of our innovative Fog Water Collectors has begun. These innovative collectors (i-FWC) will compare to their traditional counterpart models in:
- higher fog water collection capacity
- lighter total structural weight (around 25kg)
- easier anchoring system without the need to build underground foundations
- cheaper to produce and maintain
After lab tests in our own wind tunnel, field trials seek to collect some insightful data about i-FWC under real atmosphere conditions.
Additionally, a new mesh has been installed in one of our traditional FWC in order to test different materials and their collection capacity.
