With water being the most precious of all our sources, we must look at the bigger picture and protect our oceans from plastic pollution. At Hatenboer-Water we realised we had to come with the alternative. Based on our extensive track-record in water management throughout the Maritime & Offshore industry, we are now offering our Plastic Free @Sea solution.
Not only does the Plastic Free @Sea solution significantly reduce a shipowners’ ecological footprint, it is providing cost savings too! By eliminating global supply and storage issue, cost savings go well beyond the price of just water and include increased efficiency as well. Bottom line: it entails a contact-free robust bottle filling station, with an additional filtration step.

What customers often ask us about sailing bottle-free
At Hatenboer-Water we like to refer to our customers as partners. We will show you exactly what is required in your situation to safely get rid of plastic bottles for good. We also determine a timeline, together. Often, eliminating plastic bottles is achievable well before 2025. Several large and smaller shipowners have already implemented our solution successfully and are now sailing ‘plastic-free!
What makes your ‘Plastic-Free @ Sea’ solution stand out?
Not only do we offer a contact-free bottle filling station, but we also combine it with drinking water training for your crew. Our solution saves the environment and is providing significant cost savings for ship managers/operators on water and related expenses by also eliminating an often complicated supply chain and storage issue.
The crew is questioning the water quality on board and does not want to drink it. Now what?
Based on many years of experience, we advise on suitable pre-filtration and disinfection before any water entering the bottle filling station. Besides that, our drinking water experts can train your crew to increase drinking water knowledge which will create awareness and trust in the safety of the provided solution.
How do we get rid of single-use plastic water bottles on board, before 2025?

What is the cost of your solution? And what is the ROI time?
This varies for each vessel, but an installation is possible from EUR 1800,- and ROI could thus be as short as one (1) month!
Many of our customers want to eliminate single-use plastics onboard their vessels, often driven by CSR programs. Don’t underestimate the challenge of implementing this concept though. It requires convincing of the crew as well.
At Hatenboer-Water we learned that a set of small tools will help mitigate reluctance amongst crew. Next to dedicated drinking water training for the crew, we will provide you with infographics and we explained the entire concept in a digital magazine. Technicians often want to know all details and so we gladly provide them!
