KGDS Renewable Energy Private Ltd. has developed an indigenous method of concentrating solar energy by the Linear Fresnel Reflector (LFR). Total solar collector area of the system is 1404 m2. On a hot day, the steam produced by solar energy will be used for desalinating the sea water by Multi Effect Distillation (MED) system. This system produces 6000 liters/hour of desalinated water.

The total dissolved solid (TDS) in the desalinated water is less than 2 Parts Per Million (ppm).

For a small rural community of Narippaiyur in Tamil Nadu with a population of 7500 people this system can provide the vital potable water requirement. This project has been commissioned on February 12, 2013
