Dutch water technology company Hatenboer-Water has completed delivery of a customised fresh water system for a recently installed unmanned offshore platform on one of the wind farms in the German North Sea.
The project included the design and engineering work, construction, and installation of a complete water treatment package. With this commission, Hatenboer-Water installed its first water treatment system in the unmanned platforms market, the company said.
Hatenboer-Waters’ fresh water system distributes water on site using a two-step disinfection process from its tank to end users or industrial application.
The company’s sales engineer Bart Friso said: “It is an interesting project since the platform is unmanned and therefore our clients have specific requirements in terms of fresh water. We managed to complete this project within an impressive time frame. The system was engineered, constructed, supplied and made operational within an eight week period. This was all the more challenging considering its robust yet unusually compact frame.”
Unmanned offshore platforms operate independently and require water supply for technical applications such as oil and water separation, deck cleaning and sanitary facilities including the required emergency shower, the company said.
