The Schenker Watermakers company, known from the mandatory watermakers for rowing vessels competing in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, has developed the Aquatrek, a land-based solution for fresh water production. Aquatrek is an efficient, portable solution to produce fresh water basically from any source, lakes, rivers, ponds, sea.
Aquatrek is built into a tough military grade wheels case, that includes the watermaker itself, the pre-filter and the connection hoses to the water source (10 mt. long). Aquatrek is available in 2 versions:
- Aquatrek 30, that produces 30 lit/h (7.9 Gal/h) of fresh water with an electric consumption of 110 Watt only;
- Aquatrek 50, that produces 50 lit/h (13.2 Gal/h) with an electric consumption of 240 Watt.
Both units are powered 12 V and can be connected to any external battery.
Nonetheless, it is also available with the Aquatrek PowerBox. It is assembled in a strong suitcase as well and includes a special lithium battery, a charger that can accept all DC/AC standards to activate the recharging cycle of the battery, and a folding solar panel that allow to charge the battery, and power the watermakers, directly from the sun.
Powerbox is therefore an ideal complement of both the Aquatrek 30 and 50.
