Su-Nav Rolls Out Sustainable Clean Water Technology to its Fleet
New technology from the Su-Nav Aeronero Innovation Centre will produce clean water from humidity and stop the use of 6,000 plastic bottles per year per vessel.
Chennai, August 19
Su-Nav, the integrated ship management company, has rolled out the latest sustainable, green product from its Su-Nav Aeronero Innovation Centre which will provide thousands of seafarers with pure drinking water, free from harmful bacteria and eliminating the use of plastic bottles.
The machine, which has been installed on three vessels, is especially designed for marine applications by considering the adverse conditions, internal operations in the vessel & inability for servicing/maintaining. It can generate 150 to 1000 litres of pure drinking water per day. Since it uses the humidity to produce water, the marine environment provides optimum conditions for its use. The stainless-steel body also ensures longevity for use at sea.
“The seafarers are forced to consume water from tanks or plastic bottles received from different countries which results in various potentially harmful microbes in the gut. There is also the possibility of water contamination from fresh water being loaded into our tanks,” said Sachit Sahoonja, CEO of Su-Nav.
“The use of plastic is extremely harmful to the environment, so our Innovation Centre has produced a machine that is plastic free, sustainable and produces unlimited clean drinking water. We estimate that we can save of tens of thousands of plastic water bottles per year across our growing fleet,” he added.
