Flow Water to help with COVID-19 fight
(Posted on 20/03/20)
A Ballast water management manufacturer is increasing production of sodium hypochlorite to help combat Covid-19 spread.
Water Technologies has offered to supply the Cyprus Government with disinfectant free of charge to help combat the national spread of Covid-19.
The Cyprus-based engineering company has ramped up its production of disinfectant compound sodium hypochlorite and is now capable of generating five cubic metres of high concentrate per day, the equivalent of 60 cubic meters of sanitiser.
“We have taken the joint decision to put aside our immediate commercial objectives and help assist with the national fight against Covid-19 infection escalation,” said Mark Hadfield, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Flow Water Technologies.
“Cyprus imports chemicals but it will soon run out. As Flow Water Technologies BWMS solution holds a Cyprus biocide licence for the emergency services the moral obligation was clear.”
Last year, Flow Water Technologies launched the FlowSafe DCD 2000 unit which produces a safe-to-use sodium hydrochlorus solution that can be installed within a matter of hours on-board vessels ranging from private yachts, tankers, container ships to cruise liners.
“FlowSafe DCD 2000 ensures endless amounts of cleaning and disinfection control to clean and sanitise all the drinking water units along with endless amounts of liquid to clean the whole crew quarters of the vessel including the galley,” said Hadfield.
FlowSafe DCD 2000 is part of Flow Water’s ongoing corporate mission to engineer equipment that helps in the reduction of plastics on-board vessels while ensuring the well-being of crew.
