ShipEco Marine has identified
a niche market for a marine development to use an existing vessel in the form
of a Tanker that will modified to create clean
fresh potable drinking water using an environmentally conscious offshore
floating desalination plant known as the “WaterShip”.
The WaterShip is capable of producing fresh potable water from a number of cleaner fuel sources including, but not limited to:
In addition ShipEco Marine has developed and designed a Managed Brine Dilution System which is capable of cleaning the low concentrate brine to enable the overboard discharge to be the same concentration as the surrounding sea water. Creating an environmentally conscious solution.
It is considered
that the WaterShip could, with advantage,
be positioned in inshore waters on a jetty, berth or quayside or be moored further offshore on a single point mooring system close to the available gas fuel source.
The WaterShip uses the renewable gas produced from household waste or Refused Derived Fuel pellets (RDF). This pellets are crumbed into a smaller mote and entered into an advanced conversion technology system which breaks down the solid into Renewable Gas. The renewable gas onboard is used for power generation for the vessel and the deck machinery for the conversion to freshwater from sea water in a technical vapour compression process.
