This remote British Overseas territory in the South Atlantic is 1,100km from Ascension Island and some 2,000km from the coast of Angola, the nearest mainland. We checked, it is also just over 7,750km from our manufacturing base in Accrington!
With strict shipping regulations in place, it is difficult to get commercial chemicals to the island, so dosing water with chlorine or other chemicals has been a major challenge.
So how do the residents of Jamestown ensure they have a constant supply of clean drinking water? The answer is Gaffey Hyprolyser® electrochlorination technology.
Using just harmless salt and electricity to generate hypochlorite in-situ, Hyprolyser® precisely doses drinking water to keep it safe from legionella, biofilms and other waterborne bacteria.
Using five Hyprolyser® 280 units with external 500L tanks, the systems deliver assured, clean drinking water to the 700+ Jamestown residents 24/7, at a combined capacity of over 26 million litres a day.
