Providing access to safe and secure drinking water to people everywhere is integral to the Bluewater vision to innovate clean water and hydration solutions that deliver a sustainable water future.
As the Official Water Provider to the Volvo Ocean Race, Bluewater hydration solutions deliver contaminant-free drinking water on demand to Volvo Ocean Race sailors, crew, stopover visitors and the host cities globally that slashes the need for single-use bottles and avoids creating an ocean polluting plastic waste stream.
Water is essential to our existence and how we live our lives, regardless of whether you are a competitive sailor racing around the world, putting together a five-star event or someone who just enjoys being a spectator. That is why Bluewater’s mission is to innovate world-class solutions such as unique second-generation reverse osmosis technology that ensures the water we serve within each race village is both safe to drink and contributes to Ocean Health.
One of the most serious global environmental issues today is what’s in the water we consume and the way we buy it. Over 80 percent of the world’s tap water contains harmful contaminants like lead, bacteria, carcinogens or micro-plastics.
Fearful about water quality, people have turned to buying water in single-use plastic bottles, with unfathomable quantities ending up in landfill or polluting our oceans. Bluewater addresses such unsustainable practices by enabling people, businesses, organisations and municipalities to create, use and distribute safe drinking water cleaned at source, with no need for throwaway bottles, at home, work or in public places.
Bluewater is proud to provide Volvo Ocean Race’s stopovers and host cities with water stations and other hydration solutions that ensure not only pristine potable water, but also provide a solution that slashes the need for wasteful, single-use plastic bottles.
