We are now set to work with the military to ensure the trials will be successful and that the machine will perform to expectations and more. So far, we are ecstatic with the machine's performance and are excited about the future possibilities.

In just the first few hours of switching it on at the premises of the World Trade Center in Mumbai, India we achieved water production levels previously unheard of. From just 7pm the night before to 11am on Tuesday in normal Indian weather conditions, the machine produced over 900 liters of water. The machine's unique and high tech design was to make about 1,000 per 24-hour period. Indications are that if the trials are successful, the military could be looking to order such machines in large numbers. We stand ready to meet this challenge."

The World's Most Versatile Air to Water Machine
Tuesday 13 Sept, 2005

WaterMaker (India) Pvt. Ltd. / Atmospheric Water Technologies, Inc. USA will be participating at the 6th Water Asia 2005 Conference and Exhibition in Asian Water Industry from Sept 13 -15, 2005 at Pragati Maidan, Delhi.

On display will be unique air to water machines that provide high quality drinking water by extracting water from natural air. This innovative technology is now available in India for the first time and units of varying outputs are now being manufactured in India. WaterMaker (India) Pvt. Ltd. is the exclusive licensee to sell, market, manufacture and distribute the complete range of machines, systems and appertaining technologies.

Mr. Michael Zwebner, President & CEO, Atmospheric Water Technology Inc., USA will be a guest speaker on the session on 13th Sept.

He said, "Water, which is already a scarce resource will become even more scarce, and it is important to develop non-conventional methods of sourcing water. India is a very important market for us and one in which we continue to invest heavily. Having our machines manufactured here puts us in a dominant position and WaterMaker India are already executing export orders for global markets. Orders are also under process for the Indian market.

The WaterMaker machines are patented products and all equipment for extracting water from air has UN classification under UN Code 181100. The machines complete nature's distillation process by capturing water vapor before it touches the earth. They provide a localized source of pure drinking water and do not require an external water source, pipes or catch basins. All they require is electricity or alternate power sources to condense, collect, filter and dispense crystal clear potable water. The system includes the water plant, filtration panel, holding tank and dispenser.

The WaterMaker is ideal for homes, hotels, schools, hospitals, residential / commercial buildings, farmhouses, bottling plants, off shore drilling companies, defense forces, campuses, airports and industries that require pure water generation. Some machines are also portable and are ideal for use in emergencies.

WaterMaker / Air Water machines are being utilized in Israel, India, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Australia already.

Cost of the WaterMaker depends on several factors based on water generation requirements per day, energy source, dispensing requirements, daily temperature and humidity levels. Maintenance costs are not heavy. There is no cost of raw material since the air we breathe is free!

Mr. Pallan Katgara, Director, WaterMaker (India) Pvt. Ltd. is very excited about the immense potential for these unique machines. He says "In a country like ours, where villagers have to walk miles to get water, and people have to rely on water tankers and other sources of water, our WaterMaker machines provide a solution to immediate needs of drinking water."

By manufacturing the air - water machines in India, WaterMaker (India) Pvt. Ltd. is able to achieve huge cost savings which will be passed on to customers. Their goal of providing clean potable water is now one step closer. WaterMaker (India) Pvt. Ltd. is in the process of appointing distributors all over India. WaterMaker (India) Pvt. Ltd. can be contacted at stall no. C 1, hall no. 7, where a range of air - water machines will be on display.
