THE award winning Cornish inventor of the zero energy PAPA pump has announced the launch of a new business that offers total water resource solutions for agriculture and industry which use no electricity or fuel.

Water Powered Technologies Ltd, based in Bude, Cornwall, aims to build on Phil Selwyn’s success with the PAPA Pump and has developed a range of bespoke services from rainwater harvesting to drought alleviation and systems for Water Utilities that combine his patented PAPA pump with other technologies.

“We know that every industry has specific needs so we are offering our expertise and technology to help find solutions that will ultimately save energy and money. With virtually no running costs and only simple maintenance our installations can work for years, for free.” Says Phil.

Phil has revolutionised the old Victorian RAM pump technology, which was widely used in farming and made the technology finally fit for the 21st Century. With the birth of Water Powered Technologies Ltd he says he’s now able to offer much more to businesses wanting to save money and reduce their carbon footprint.

“It is now possible to present all the energy and cost saving uses of our technology and our expert advice under one roof,” says Hugh Swire, Commercial Director at Water Powered Technologies Ltd.

“In a world where energy and water security are such key issues we can help businesses use less mains water and be less dependent on electricity or diesel. We are looking for technology and business partners to trial, test and share the benefit from our new range of solutions.

“As ever we are thankful to colleagues, partners and customers around the world who continue to find new ways for our patented technology to help cut costs and mitigate problems now so common with climate change.”
