Potable Water Systems for Offshore Platforms and Rigs

Good and safe drinking water is essential on-board your offshore platform or rig.

Mercuriusweg 8,
3113 AR Schiedam Netherlands

Good and safe drinking water is essential on-board your offshore platform or rig. You can find an up-to-date and sophisticated range of products, engineered systems and services at Hatenboer-Water, specialist in providing potable water since 1906. You can rely on the company to provide safe and reliable potable water on-board, from production to consumption.

With its specialist expertise, the application of its own engineering and design and a modern operating environment, Hatenboer-Water supplies turnkey solutions for all your water-related challenges. It can supply a simple, standard product such as a pump or filter, or provide fully integrated custom-made systems, with all the necessary worldwide after-sales service.

Transportation modules for hot and cold potable water

Plug-and-play modules ensure a reliable and safe potable water supply. You save cost and time during installation on-board because our units are completely pre-assembled and fully skid built. These complete skids comprise all equipment you require for pressurizing, treatment and heating of potable water for use offshore.

Seawater desalination systems

For reliable potable water production offshore, Hatenboer-Water’s Demitec® RO reverse-osmosis seawater desalination systems are available in a wide range of capacities. Your maritime demands and conditions are met in a proven heavy-duty design for rough offshore applications. Your system is designed according to Hatenboer-Water’s standards, based on more than 100 years of experience.

Hundreds of Demitec RO seawater desalination systems are operational on offshore installations worldwide.

Water treatment and management training for platform personnel

Enhance your offshore platform’s crew knowledge of water, water treatment and water management with our professional two-day maritime and offshore potable water training course. This training is held several times throughout the year at our offices in Schiedam, the Netherlands. You can also request for a course to be held at your location. Please contact us for the training dates for this year.

Corrosion and bio-film prevention for potable water systems

All through your potable water system, corrosion and bio-film can occur, causing serious health risks and an unsafe environment on rigs or platforms. However, if you use Hatenboer-Water’s long expertise in potable water equipment technology and installation, you are able to prevent issues like corrosion and bacteriological growth during design and new building.

The aging of the ship’s systems can be prevented by applying our recommendations concerning used materials, installation instructions and required treatment equipment. Different challenges ask for different solutions. This is why you can find a wide range of disinfection products in our scope of supply. Hadex dosing, Demitec UV and copper-silver ionisation are only three of the possibilities we offer – in combination if required – to guarantee water is free from bacteria like Legionella or E-coli.

Potable water system risk management

Existing systems can be upgraded to a safe system by implementing our risk assessment and management plan. Risk management is an essential part of a responsible and modern way of running a business. It increases the safety of men and machines on-board and the reliability and efficiency of your potable water system.

Every risk assessment and management plan is tailor-made after a visit on board by one of our qualified drinking water experts. You can also entrust us with your water sampling, analysis, quality reports and on-board audits to assess the chemical, microbiological and physical condition of your water.
