DPM water technologies limited is a known name in the field of water treatment equipment. The company is based in Scotland, UK and works for providing treatment equipment for conditions like emergency relief, disaster situations and potable water. The company has come up with new containerized water treatment equipment meant for developing countries and has named it Aquacube. The container will help in transforming unusable water into potable water.
The product has been invented by the team of Hugh OâDonnell and Dr. Keith Gavin at DPM, Scotland. This water treatment plant will be housed in shipping containers and will be a self sufficient one with all the necessary equipment and power supply. The containers will come with huge tanks for water storage. Besides, different types of water will be treated through a method best suitable for the particular water type. This treated water will be available for drinking as well as for irrigation and other industrial purposes.
The product is intended to operate with minimum of infrastructure and can work in most hostile climatic conditions. The product comes with easy installation features and easy operations, and hence can be easily managed by the community groups in developing countries like India, Africa and many more, where potable water is still a precious item and the womenfolk have to walk miles to fetch a pot of it. The shipping container can be installed near the villages to establish a regular and clean supply of water.
