XXL-REFRESH aims to develop an innovative ecological system for the transportation of fresh water by sea that can fully address the growing water needs of a large number of European coastal communities.
XXL-REFRESH consists of transporting fresh water by sea using a group of flexible plastic tankers assembled using watertight, highly resistant zippers. A real-time monitoring system, powered by solar energy, measures and transmits via wireless to the tugboat crew the tensile conditions of the container. XXL-REFRESH is modular and is more environmentally friendly than current techniques based on tankers and desalination plants.
