White paper: Reverse Osmosis vs Evaporator
Traditionally an evaporator fresh water generator was the standard on board. Drivers for an alternative ask for a different technology and thus a different type of fresh water generator: the Reverse Osmosis (RO) fresh water generator.
Hatenboer-Water was an early adapter of Reverse Osmosis technology maritime fresh water generators. We started in 1985 with this technology, and curently have more than 3000 vessels sailing with our equipment supplying safe water on board.
