For over 30 years, Parker Village Marine (VMT) has developed innovative water desalination and purification systems for some of the most challenging environments. VMT received the prestigious Aegis Excellence Award as the only RO supplier to excel in quality and delivery, surpassing U.S. Navy expectations.
The waternaker that has been supplied to the Rib of our mission is a continuous and inexhaustible source of fresh water from the sea, with much better quality than the one provided by the water supply system of a city. Thus, we will be completely autonomous in drinking water as well as in fresh water for the cleaning needs of the multi-member crew of our mission, which means that we will not need to carry large water containers on board, saving much more free space which is absolutely necessary mainly for the hundreds of liters of fuel we will carry. In addition, the presence of the waternaker will free us from the constant transport of fresh water containers from the very small and infrastructureless communities of the Inuit of the Arctic Circle.
