FlowSafe DCD Drinking and Disinfection System
(Flow Water Technologies Ltd.)
Flow Water Technologies Ltd., based in Limassol, is set in the heart of the Cypriot shipping community. The company’s heritage comes from several highly qualified engineers with years of experiences in R&D, electrochlorination, water filtration and innovative treatment methods, coming together to form a company focused on environmental solutions to legislation imposed on the shipping industry related to water.
Flow Water Technologies Ltd., led by its founder Mark Hadfield, have developed the world’s first Offset Carbon Neutral Ballast Water Management System that is in its final stages of IMO and USCG approval. Not just thinking of the Ballast Water Convention, the company had the foresight to consider that Ballast Systems use massive amounts of energy and at a time legislation insisted emissions are reduced. Therefore, designing a system that would meet the Low Sulphur cap and eventually offer a return on the initial capex. Following the theme of environmentally friendly solutions, the company is developing an anti-fouling system to further enhance their work with BWMS. They are also working on the final stages of a product that helps with catalytic fines in fuel and reducing the damage caused. All these products are designed with low cost and ease of operation.
This brings us to the FlowSafe DCD drinking and Disinfection system. With a passion to help reduce plastics going to sea, Flow Water developed a drinking water system that is suited to the marine environment giving the crew healthy, tasty and safe drinking water stopping the need for plastic drinking water bottles. Taking it one stage further, the DCD system also produces a cleaning and disinfection system that provides the vessel with 95% of all its cleaning and disinfection needs. This is a massive contribution to reducing plastics at sea.
