Mobile water drinking solutions that is sustainable and cost effective

The Bluewater Trailer is a mobile water station dispensing purified, non-potable chilled water that is either still and sparkling. Bluewater’s flagship product, the pioneering and industry-leading Bluewater Pro 400, harnesses a patented second-generation reverse osmosis purification process called SuperiorOsmosis™ that can generate up to 7,000 litres of pure water every day including from normally tough-to-purify brackish water or borehole water.

The trailer enables crew to refill a multi-use water bottle with still or sparkling chilled water dispensed from Bluewater Trailers located in multiple positions around set.

By using the trailer, sets are eliminating the use of a massive amount of single-use plastic that they otherwise have to transport to and from site at significant cost. Film sets save a huge amount of money by replacing all those bottles with the Bluewater Trailer water.

For some time now, key role players in the South African film industry have acknowledged the critical need for a unified front adopting measures to mitigate the environmental impact of film productions and the Bluewater trailers are enabling sets to do this.

Bluewater launched their trailer service in September last year and has been assisting some of South Africa’s large-scale events, like the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon and Rocking the Daisies, to become more sustainable by reducing their use of single-use plastic while simultaneously lessening their impact by not using municipal water sources.

“Sustainability and innovation are at the heart of Bluewater’s business mission ” said James Steere, Executive Director for Bluewater’s operations in Africa.

“Our work with film sets are demonstrating what a true commitment to single-use plastic waste reduction can achieve. It is inspiring for all of us in the Bluewater team and we hope that the film and television industry will take note that reducing environmental impact makes good business sense with a superior product offering that also boosts the bottom line.”

Bluewater Trailers are an ideal solution to the on-set drinking water needs for large groups of people involved in short- and long-term productions that are indoors and outdoors Bluewater, a global water purification technology and products manufacturing company with international head offices in Sweden, is now bringing the Bluewater Pro technology to South Africa, as well as serving the events industry with the Bluewater Mobile Trailer.
