The Aberdeenshire-based company’s entry aims to recognise its revolutionary new technology, the AWG1500 Vacuum Vapour Compression water purifier, which has the capability of producing up to 1,500 litres of clean water per 24 hours from sea, swamp, river or bore hole with no filters or chemicals required, producing clean water at £0.002 p/litre.
The generator is simply connected, powered up and the user can then enjoy an uninterrupted supply of clean drinking water with minimal human intervention required. It can be operated and monitored remotely and can operate in temperatures between -10 C to 60C. The robust and flexible nature of the generator means it can be trailer mounted individually or in banks and powered by mains, generator or fuel cells.
Peter McCann, director at Atlantic Water Company comments, “We are immensely proud to be shortlisted in these awards, and even more so for the fantastic achievement that is our Vacuum Vapour Compression water purifier.
“Our company goal is to provide clean water for everyone, everywhere no matter what the natural quality of water may be. We have recently been approved by the DWI (Department of Water Inspectorate), and are also currently undergoing the approval process with UNICEF and the UN to allow us to be registered as a vendor internationally.
“Wider recognition through the VIBES Awards could aid in our ambition of providing fresh drinking water for water stressed communities, emergency relief and humanitarian aid on a large scale.
“We are very grateful for the chance to be involved in the awards alongside many other high achieving businesses that have a positive impact on the environment.”
The winners will be announced at a high profile ceremony on the 27th November at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow where if they win, they will also qualify to be considered for the biennial European Business Awards for the Environment (EBEA).
