Lifesaver launches new emergency response product

Posted 6 June 2013 · Add Comment

Colchester-based Lifesaver Systems have launched the latest addition to the Lifesaver family, the Lifesaver cube, which has been developed for humanitarian crises and natural disasters.

The Lifesaver cube is a compact and robust product optimised for the humanitarian sector because of its simplicity of manufacture, transportability, and ease of use. Each cube is able to produce five tonnes of sterile drinking water, where and when you need it.



The Lifesaver cube incorporates the patented and proven Lifesaver technology – being the only portable water filtration technology to remove all microbiological waterborne pathogens including bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites and fungi from water without the need for any chemicals or the need for power or UV light.

The Lifesaver cube will transform the disaster response toolkit for government and non-government agencies. Easily palletized for rapid deployment, the cube provides communities at risk with the ability to produce sterile drinking water for themselves, freeing up the response teams to address food, health and shelter requirements. The Lifesaver cube is a compact, lightweight and cost effective addition for NGO's and global relief organisations looking for a proven solution to deliver instant relief to those in need.

Managing director, Ashton Hunt said: "The development of the Lifesaver cube demonstrates our commitment to the humanitarian sector. We took feedback from OXFAM and DFID, and in less than 12 months of design and testing, now have a unique and world class product in manufacture."

ISO 9001 certified, Lifesaver systems has been manufacturing products based on their unique technology for over six years, serving four main global markets: humanitarian, emergency preparedness, military and retail.

With many global military customers, the Lifesaver bottle and jerrycan are in-service across Europe, South Asia and the Middle East.

In the Humanitarian market, Lifesaver works closely with Oxfam, The Red Cross, Shelternow and Medicine Sans Frontiers, as well as being part of the UK Rapid Response Facility for short notice deployment with the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
