1. An equipment for disposal of cyanobacteria in stagnant waters comprising:
a hollow floating device having a top float connected to a low float;
photovoltaic cells connected to the top float;
bipolar electrodes distributed around a perimeter of the top float, the bipolar electrodes being located between the top float and the low float, the bipolar electrodes being connected to the photovoltaic cells and including metallic plates situated in the low float;
a rib positioned inside the hollow floating device and placed perpendicularly between the low float and the top float;
an alternator located on the upper side of the top float;
a wind generation device mounted on the upper float, the wind generation device being operatively connected to the alternator;
a water pump having a first end connected directly to the wind generation device;
a perforated pipe having a first end and an outlet end, the first end of the perforated pipe connected to a second end of the water pump;
a suspended bipolar electrode located outside the hollow floating device and connected to an outer side of the low float, the suspended bipolar electrode being connected to the photovoltaic cells and the alternator; and
wherein the outlet end of the perforated pipe is positioned directly above the suspended bipolar electrode;
wherein the bipolar electrodes are located above the suspended bipolar electrode;
wherein the bipolar electrodes and the suspended bipolar electrode rotate alternately to the left and to the right creating distinct circles of electrical charge;
the water pump circulating water through the bipolar electrodes inside the hollow floating device.
