Abstract: front page image
(EN)There is disclosed a structure (300) comprising a buoyant member (305) . There is a global need for renewable energy sources. There is also a global shortage of fresh water. The present invention provides structure (300) comprising buoyant member (305) , and at least one pump means (310) , wherein, in use, the at least one pump means (310) is driven by rise and/or fall of the buoyant member (305) with rise and/or fall with the level of fluid, such as the level of tide or varying water level from a source such as from a flowing river. The invention also provides a water purification and/or electrical generation apparatus (A) including a pump device (B) including the structure (300) .
(FR)La présente invention, destinée à répondre au besoin mondial en sources d'énergie renouvelables ainsi qu'à la pénurie mondiale d'eau douce, concerne une structure (300) comportant un élément flottant (305) et au moins un moyen (310) de pompe qui, pendant l'utilisation, est entraîné par l'élévation et / ou la descente de l'élément flottant (305) avec l'élévation et / ou la descente du niveau de fluide, comme le niveau de la marée ou un niveau d'eau variable issu d'une source comme le cours d'une rivière.
