DGE will be the first company to build and operate a seawater desalination ship exclusively for the purpose of providing fresh water for commercial and public use. The principle advantage of the vessel based system is that it can operate in international waters and be in operation within 14 months. Each ship will be capable of supplying upwards of 20 million gallons of fresh water per day immediately suitable for potable treatment by local water authorities. DGE will use this water in its commercial manufacturing operations and sell excess supplies to water restricted communities near fuel production sites.
