Millennium Desalination Device

Quick facts

Company: IngesonWater

Test site: Sweden

Products: Water-in-a-Box; MDD 2K Titan

Millennium Technology of Sweden– IngesonWater performs product development and test beds in Eskilstuna and Sösdala, Sweden, and tests validation software for design requirements in the face of humanitarian crises and off-grid.

The goal of the project Water-in-a-Box step 2 is to test and verify technical solutions for a mobile, flexible and solar-powered production concept that can clean water from bacteria and salt. It has also been included in the project to demonstrate and test a prototype of the ‘Water-in-a-Box’ (Product Demonstration – TRL 5) in a real environment at Ekeby wetland, adjacent to a water treatment plant in Eskilstuna as a step towards utilizing the concept.

The container will be delivered by air, train, boat or suitable means of transport to be installed on site within 8 hours.

There is a broad interest in the concept, among others from the UN, which sees opportunities to offer this to crisis and disaster relief around the world via their central warehouse.

Central Process Unit – MDD 2K Titan

Millennium Desalination Device (MDD) has the possibility to purify water from bacteria and/or salt. 
The watermaker MDD 2K Titan is an updated version of the prototype of Water-in-a-Box.

It has the following advantages that make it unique:

  • Uses no filter, membrane or chemicals in the process of making drinking water. 
  • Can be powered by several renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and hydro power.
  • Service friendly
  • Compact
  • Mobile
  • Long durability – Titan
  • Serial- or parallel connectivity
  • Scalable
  • No wastewater in the process

MDD 2K Titan purifies from 2000 liters of water and more per day depending on configuration.
