Marc Parent came up with the idea of a wind turbine that produces drinking water when he lived in the Caribbean. He started by collecting water produced by an air conditioning unit for his own needs, then he moved on to the idea of designing a machine capable of producing water and he combined this process with a wind turbine. This led to a completely independent device for producing electricity and water.
In 2004, Marc Parent decided to found the company “Eole Tech." It was a design firm with a small workshop, which aimed to develop the very first prototypes of this new technology.
After four years of work, Marc Parent completed the development of his model WMS50 (Water Maker System). He then decided to create “Eole Water SAS “.
One year later, thanks to the French venture capital equity, a design for a new wind turbine, the WMS1000, was launched with the goal of producing 1000 liters of water per day. The cost of this development represented €2 million.
Based in Sainte Tulle (04) since the beginning, Eole Water continues to maintain its position as a world leader in the field of wind or solar-powered condensed water production.
After more than 18 months of development and testing in France, the WMS1000, the world's first wind turbine able to produce 1000 liters of water a day from air condensation, was shipped to Abu Dhabi for its first phase of tests in the extreme weather conditions of Middle East.
