Water from the sun and air

The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) is to offer bottled water made purely from sunlight and air.

In collaboration with the manufacturer SOURCE the first renewable, sustainable bottled water brand will be launched to serve the tourism sector in the local resorts.

The water is produced using solar technology that draws pure water vapour out of the air and converts it to drinking water. Water created from these ‘hydropanels’ will be bottled at a plant that also runs on solar energy, creating the largest solar-powered facility of its kind.

Located on site at The Red Sea Project, the SOURCE facility will have a capacity of 2 million 330ml bottles annually and will initially produce 300,000 bottles a year. The reusable glass bottles will be refilled on site as part of a fully circular sustainable distribution model.

As the official bottled water of The Red Sea Project, SOURCE will initially serve the Coastal Village, a residential and commercial area that will house the 600 employees and operators working at the site.

The Red Sea Project will welcome its first guests by the end of 2022. The first phase of the development will include 16 luxury hotels offering 3,000 keys across five islands and two inland locations. It will also include entertainment facilities, an airport, and the necessary supporting logistics and utilities infrastructure.
