The Changemaker

Primarily recycles wastewater into clean water for irrigation and industrial uses, but can also provide clean, drinking water.

The Changemaker

Purpose:

Brings value back to society by recycling wastewater into clean water.

Features:

The Changemaker treats wastewater from onshore facilities and delivers disinfected water back to shore. It also produces fertilizer that can be used for agriculture. The vessel features a primary and secondary treatment component that produces water for irrigation and industrial uses, but more notably, it also features a tertiary treatment facility which enables water production for drinking purposes.

Who It Is For:

  • An area in need of clean water for irrigation.
  • An area in need of clean water for industry (e.g. cooling water for power plants).

Value:

  • Enables efficient utilization of an area’s available water resources by recycling wastewater into valuable—and useable—clean water.
  • Reduces negative impact on marine environment by avoiding discharge of polluted wastewater.

Conditions:

  • Need for onshore irrigation water and/or industrial water must be present.
  • Land area for construction of shore-based treatment plants is limited or not available.

Location:

Countries and areas with a demand for water reuse related to irrigation and/or industrial purposes. Normally, these water users also have dry climates without rain for large parts of the year. They may also have limited facilities for wastewater treatment.

Key Benefits:

  • Mobility: The ship can operate independent of an onshore property cost and can be used as a supplemental “facility” where land space is limited or expensive.
  • Construction Flexibility: Ship can be deployed and operable at a location in a short period of time.
  • Relatively Low Cost: Compared to an onshore plant, a lower investment is required to mobilize a “floating” offshore plant. Again, the ship can be utilized for shorter or longer periods of time, resulting in cost savings and/or cost flexibility.
