PWN Technologies sending its Perfectors-E to Haiti.

PWN Technologies, the technology subsidiary of the water utility of Noord-Holland (PWN) is exploring the possibilities to help Haiti, after the country has been hit by massive earthquakes, with their mobile water water treatment installations: the Perfector-E (E stands for emergency). The Perfector-E has been perfectly equiped to produce clear drinking water with almost no maintenance. The installation is very easy to operate.

SHORTAGE OF DRINKING WATER

The earthquake, centered near the impoverished Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, measured 7.0 on the Richter scale and at least 1.8 million people live within the area where the earthquake had its highest intensity. Many people are covered under the rubble of collapsed buildings. Houses have been damaged, the public water supply has been destroyed, as a result of which there is a serious shortage of drinking water. The area is hard to reach because of the devastations, also for trucks with bottled water. Contaminated drinking water can cause cholera and typhoid fever.

MORE THAN 2000 LITRES PER HOUR

The Perfector- E is a compact and mobile purification installation that determines drinking water from surface water. One unit can filter 2000 litres surface water per hour to reliable drinking water.The Perfector has been originally developed directly after the tsunami by PWN, in association with Norit.The Perfectors were used before in the Indonesian Aceh to bridge the time to repair the regular water supply system. PWN Technologies will send 8 installations to Haiti including technicians.
