REFRESH aims at realising an innovative green system for the transportation of fresh water by sea able to fully address the growing water’s needs of a large number of European coastal communities.
REFRESH is based on fresh-water transportation by sea using a group of plastic flexible tankers assembled using watertight and high-strength resistant zippers. A strain real-time monitoring system, powered by solar energy, measures and transmits via wireless to the tugboat crew the tensile conditions of the container. REFRESH is modular, more environmental friendly than current techniques based in vessel tankers and desalination plants.
