TAMPA BAY, FL / ACCESSWIRE / August 30, 2023 / Atlantic Power & Infrastructure Corp's (OTC PINK:AWSL) subsidiary, NGWP Inc (Next Generation Water Purification), is embarking on a remarkable journey to tackle a pressing health hazard caused by Algae and Red Tide. The subsidiary's groundbreaking technology is set to deploy an additional 10 Algae Removing Vessels to one of the largest lakes in the Southeastern United States.
The Global Challenge: Algae and Red Tide Infestation - a Serious Health Hazard
Algae infestation in water bodies worldwide poses a rapidly growing and critical health risk worldwide. Atlantic Power & Infrastructure Corp (AP&I) is at the forefront of combatting this crisis with an ingenious solution. Through proprietary Algae Vessels (AVs), these vessels are strategically placed within hazardous water bodies to target and eliminate harmful Algae Blooms that plague rivers, ponds, and lakes, as well as Red Tide Algae blooms in saltwater bodies. The AVs adeptly absorb the harmful Algae and Red Tide, processing them onboard before safely returning benign Algae to the water body. This transformed Algae then contributes as a natural and non-hazardous food source for aquatic life.
Innovative Benefits and Sustainable Practices
While battling this environmental menace, NGWP Algae Vessels operate with a zero-carbon footprint, harnessing wind, and solar power for their operation. This commitment aligns with AP&I's overarching corporate goal of benefiting the environment.
Converting Crisis into Opportunity
In collaboration with a leading Environmental agency in the State of Florida, NGWP has initiated a pivotal research endeavor. As a testament to their commitment, one AV has undergone extensive testing and assessment in Lake Okeechobee, a sprawling 467,000-acre lake. Now, NGWP is producing an additional 10 AVs to be strategically placed within various locations in the same lake. This ambitious project aims to complete comprehensive research within three months, setting the stage for a potential revolution in water safety.
Not only is this Algae and Red Tide becoming a serious health hazard for residents, but it is also affecting the state's tourism industry, tourism being major source of income for the state.
A Glimpse into the Future
The implications are astounding. Once the research phase concludes, projections indicate that hundreds of NGWP AVs will be leased indefinitely, solely for Lake Okeechobee. This signifies a mere fraction of the total number required to address this burgeoning health crisis across the state and globally.
Turning the Tide
With its pioneering proprietary technology, Atlantic Power and Infrastructure is not only safeguarding aquatic ecosystems but also promoting healthier water bodies. The subsidiary's efforts are set to alleviate what has rapidly become a critical health hazard worldwide. Until now, environmental authorities have been grappling with a solution to this swiftly escalating crisis. Through innovation and dedication, AP&I's subsidiary is rewriting the narrative and leading the charge toward a safer and more sustainable future.
