  • 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.

    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. Still reluctant to drink tap water? Hatenboer-Water invested in a tool kit to inform and convince your crew this is the best alternative. See www.safewateronboard.com/crew.

    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 specially configured by Hatenboer-Water to stand up to onboard 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.

    Plastic Free @Sea: the economical solution to stop using single use plastics on board.

  • When stored on board, water is prone to fouling and bacterial growth.
