Abstract

Water is an integral need for the survival of human life on Earth. Pakistan needs to fulfil requirements of a population of over 200 million along with the added demand of agricultural processes, need to develop unconventional resources of water production for areas that face issues of water shortage. Most of them being rural areas along the southern shoreline of Pakistan despite the presence of Arabian Sea in their vicinity. Southern regions of Pakistan that are along the Makran coastline areas are known to have high humidity (around 70-80%). Also, the coastal areas get a considerable amount of sea breeze for which a turbine can be made to use to harness wind energy required for the operation of this research. Incoming wind enters through the nose cone of the proposed turbine and is then heated by a Peltier device to produce water vapours which trickle down and are collected in the designated collectors. Thus, water for drinking and household purposes can be obtained in this way using renewable energy.
