WE MOVE 4 BILLION LITRES OF DRINKING WATER IN 33 DAYS – WITH ONE SHIPMENT.
Too slow? We are working towards 16 days.
For us, transportation means pulling and hauling ice to other regions. To successfully implement this process, we not only use state-of-the-art and high-performance deep-sea tugs, but this also requires an almost perfect connection between the ship and the iceberg. Similar to a snow chain, in our case it is a towing harness. It is lighter than water to minimise transportation costs. It is harder than steel and as flexible as rubber to carry everything we can offshore – today it is icebergs. It is modular, so it can be repaired during transport – if necessary. It is scalable, because we want to adapt it to any size of iceberg. It is reusable and inexpensive because our CFO does not allow it to be otherwise. Having been tried and tested for many years, it is extremely resilient and completely safe. Otherwise, our insurance contract would have been terminated. In addition, it is environmentally friendly because we care more about the environment than any iceberg in the world and we are not keen on receiving a red card from Greenpeace.
