H2O ECO watermaker

Southampton International Boat Show, 10th to 19th September, Display Trailer on Stand E020

Fischer Panda UK will introduce a revolutionary new watermaker for power conscious sailboat owners at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show.

The next generation Parker Hannifin H20 ECO Series of reverse osmosis water desalination systems will be showcased to visitors for the first time, alongside the full range of Fischer Panda UK’s latest technology and equipment on its demonstration and display trailer on Stand E020.

Answering significant demand for a low power, high output watermaker, the Fischer Panda UK H20 ECO units are engineered for small to mid-size sailboats and catamarans that have limited power options. The automatic watermakers are available in two models, providing reliable production of 400 or 600 gallons per day (GPD) of safe water for drinking and cooking.

Incorporating patent pending energy recovery technology, the automatic H2O ECO provides up to 14.2% more power efficiency compared to other leading watermaker brands, drawing just 1 Amp for approximately 3 litres of water production.

The robust units are also extremely quiet and smooth running, requiring minimal maintenance. With fully automated operation, boat owners can install the compact Energy Recovery watermaker into tight spaces because daily access to the unit is not necessary.

Chris Fower, Sales and Marketing Director, Fischer Panda UK, said: “We are really looking forward to offering the revolutionary H2O ECO system, developed by the experts at Parker, to visitors at this year’s Southampton Boat Show. We anticipate huge interest from anyone with limited onboard power looking for the most efficient unit capable of producing potable water from any ocean around the world.

“Our demo-trailer has been a regular feature at this key UK event for almost 20 years now and the show is always an important date on our calendar. This year, however, the show takes on even greater significance as a much-needed chance to reconnect with regular and new customers, liaise with business colleagues and feel part of the industry once again after the disruptions and event cancellations we have seen over the past 18 months. Thankfully, with the popularity of boating on the increase, demand for our products has been high over the spring and summer and we are excited to show customers our full-system capabilities, including our range of generators, electric propulsion, air-conditioning, and power monitoring and control.”

The H20 ECO is specifically designed for leisure marine applications and works with AC or DC power, ensuring the watermaker is ideal for boat owners who do not have a generator onboard.

Both the H2O ECO models have leading levels of low power consumption. The 12V/24V 400 GPD unit produces 17 gallons / 63 litres per hour (LPH) of potable water at 240 Watts, while, for boaters requiring higher capacity, the 600 GPD version produces 25 gallons / 95 litres per hour at 437 Watts, which equates to about 1 Amp for every 3 litres of water.

The H2O ECO units, measuring 283mm (h) x 487mm (l) x 627mm (w) and weighing 54 to 57kg, feature a completely enclosed, compact unit in a powder coated aluminium frame.

The new series strengthens the range of Sea Recovery, Village Marine and HRO watermakers already offered by complete marine systems specialist Fischer Panda UK, supplied to customers with the back-up of Parker Group’s global support network.

The display trailer at Southampton Boat Show will also feature Fischer Panda’s line of diesel gensets, which are the quietest and most compact marine generators available, suitable for vessels ranging from RIBs to superyachts. The variable speed iSeries ‘Perfect Power’ range incorporates next generation technology that improves fuel efficiency and benefits the environment. The Verwood-based supplier can supply its compatible Mastervolt power solutions and CZone control and monitoring functionality for customised system integration around a Fischer Panda generator purchase.
