The newly procured funds will be used to expand and strengthen the business of the next generation of decentralized water infrastructure and WOTA BOX (AI water circulation system launched in February 2019 as a pioneer of the next generation of decentralized water infrastructure). In the future, WOTA aims to create a new global infrastructure business by combining its advanced water treatment technologies with J-POWER’s power generation technology and know-how.
WOTA has declared “Water freedom for everyone, everywhere.” as a mission, and has provided the AI water circulation system “WOTA BOX” as a proposal for a new water infrastructure.
In particular, existing water infrastructures have issues of vulnerability during disasters. At the time of disaster, there is a problem that water breakage occurs due to the breakage of the pipeline. Therefore, WOTA has been providing AI water circulation system prototypes at shelters in Japan when natural disasters have occurred since 2016. More than 300 people have used the WOTA-provided showers so far.
In response to this, in February 2019, WOTA began selling the AI water circulation system “WOTA BOX” to realize Japan in which all people can enjoy abundant water in the event of a disaster, while also working with partner companies to develop a business model that is easy to introduce in various situations.
WOTA will further strengthen R&D and business development for the realization of “Water freedom for everyone, everywhere.”.
