Zap Water Technology, Inc. purchased the Diamond Shoals Light Station on October 2, 2012. Dave Schneider, the President of Zap, made the purchase to restore the Light Station, with long-term plans to establish an '"on ocean" technology center. Zap Water Technology, Inc. will be the founding technology partner, with plans to use current products, and to develop new ones in the ElectroChemical Activation (ECA) product line. (Visit zapwatertechnology.com for more info). The facility, upon renovation, will be available to other technology, research, testing, academic, and corporate organizations. Since Zap's principals are based in sustainable, non-toxic, and low impact technology, we will have a emphasis on partners with the same goals, such as clean water, wind power, ocean power, solar, and other related fields of research. We also see interest from biologists, marine biologists, climatologists, and those developing products that need to be tested in an actual marine setting, such as metallurgists, desalination technologists, coating manufacturers, and those testing recreational equipment, and fishing, diving, or boating products. This will be a unique, one-of-a-kind place to do some very important work in a very inspiring setting!
