Safe Water
on Board

As a vessel or rig owner or operator, you are responsible for the delivery of good (drinking) water quality at all tap points. In essence, the on-board water treatment systems form a small municipal water treatment plant with all the responsibilities and required knowledge to operate it.

At Hatenboer-Water, we understand that this is not your core business. It is, however, ours! Hatenboer-Water can deliver a complete water treatment and distribution plant on board of your ship, vessel, or rig. All individual treatment equipment is perfectly suitable for its intended use on board a vessel or rig. When combined with proper management and maintenance, regular testing, global assistance and advice, and supplemented with more than a century of knowledge, they form an integrated holistic approach to water safety on board. This concept we call Safe Water on Board.

Our decades of experience on board vessels have made us understand that maintaining safe water requires more than just technical equipment; it demands a comprehensive approach encompassing procedures, services, and knowledge.

At Hatenboer-Water, we believe that all treatment and distribution equipment should form an integrated system delivering water according to international rules and guidelines. Our scope of supply meets all the requirements stated in these guidelines, enabling us to create water on board that is safe to use and complies with the applicable regulations. While establishing this, we relieve you from the intensive research needed to not only match all separate components required but also maintain the entire system in such a condition that it supplies safe water during the lifespan of the vessel or rig. Hatenboer-Water provides you with the roadmap to safe water on board.
