Emergency Response Vessel (ERV)

Produces clean drinking water for populations in disaster areas.

  • Purpose

    Providing clean drinking water to populations in disaster areas.

  • Features

    Turns seawater or brackish water into clean drinking water.

  • Location

    Coastal areas where catastrophe or natural disaster hits (e.g. the Indian Ocean, Caribbean, South East Asia).

Suitable for:

  • Areas hit by catastrophe or natural disaster, with surrounding communities in immediate need of clean drinking water.

  • Typical users include: local communities, hospitals, farmers, industry, other relevant municipal users, and NGOs.

Value:

  • Gives local communities-in-need access to clean drinking water, saving and restoring lives, effecting multiple positive health benefits.

  • After the water infrastructure is restored in a disaster area, the Emergency Response Vessel (ERV) can move straight to a new strategic location and be ready for the next relief assignment.

Conditions:

  • An area hit by or immersed in catastrophe that has urgent need for clean drinking water.

  • Onshore water supply or infrastructure fail to provide the local community with sufficient drinking water.

Key benefits

  • Mobility

    Can be mobilized to a new location/assignment in a relatively short amount of time. When not deployed for emergency purposes, the ERV can be used to provide water in other areas, but the vessel remains on call for
    emergency use.

  • Deployment

    This ERV is capable of rapid deployment, and it remains in the disaster area until all necessary water infrastructure and/or supplies are restored.

  • Low Cost

    Usually no user investment necessary. Typically, a government organization or an NGO will pay an agreed rate for use of the vessel. Fee is based on fixed + variable costs.
