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.

Touchless tapping of reusable water bottles

Apart from the fact that the crew will be thrilled that they won’t have to handle the numerous plastic bottles, we offer them contact free, heavy duty water dispensers. Attractive looking, stainless steel units that allow your crew to consume water from your vessel in a responsible, safe and effective manner. 

Everpure Reverse Osmosis

MRS Plate/Wall Mount System

Depending on your drinking water lay-out, you install the compact Everpure MRS-225 CC reverse osmosis unit just before the water dispenser. The unit has been especially configured by Hatenboer-Water to stand up to on board water lay-outs. The 3-step MRS-225 concept guards against taste and odour causing contaminants while removing dirt, particulates and dissolved minerals that can adversely affect taste of water and beverages.

How to deal with crew concerns

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 smart 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!
