In a world grappling with the growing challenges of water scarcity and emergency situations, North Water Greenland emerges as a steadfast guardian, delivering a strategic water reserve through bulk tanker vessels for acute or emergency deployment. With exclusive extraction licenses granting access to pristine water sources in Greenland and the US, we stand as a beacon of hope, capable of supplying more than 1,000,000 m3 of clean water daily. This abundance equates to providing clean drinking water for 10 million citizens in the developed world every day and offers a crucial lifeline in emergency relief during disaster situations.

Our Mission and UN Sustainable Development Goal:
North Water Greenland is not just a company; it is a commitment to addressing global water challenges. Rooted in the UN Sustainable Development Goal 6—Clean Water and Sanitation, our mission is to contribute to a sustainable future by ensuring the availability of clean drinking water, especially in times of crisis. With our dedicated team and advanced technologies, we undertake the responsibility of delivering pristine Arctic water to regions and large cities in need.

Our Process:
Our strategic water reserve is the result of a meticulous process designed for efficiency, safety, and reliability. The journey begins with the capture of water from pristine arctic rivers in Greenland, ensuring the highest quality at the source. Alternatively, a source of drinking water in Florida, US. This water is then transported in clean bulk tanker vessels to destinations worldwide. Onboard these vessels, our commitment to quality assurance is unwavering. State-of-the-art lab equipment and UV disinfection measures are employed to guarantee the safety and purity of the water throughout its journey.

Upon arrival at the designated harbour, our bulk tanker vessels transfer the water to local water reservoirs or water distribution systems, facilitating easy access for the communities in need. Consumers receive not just water but clean, high-quality drinking water that meets the highest standards.

Shipment Sizes and Engagement Types:
Our shipments, ranging from 30,000 m3 to 150,000 m3, are meticulously planned and executed. We employ tanker vessels of various classes, from medium-range (MR) to SuezMax, ensuring the flexibility to meet diverse needs and challenges. North Water Greenland offers engagement options tailored to the requirements of our partners and clients:

Buy Water and Bring Your Own Pickup Bulk Tanker Vessel:
For those who prefer a hands-on approach, this engagement type allows clients to purchase water directly from the source and use their own pickup bulk tanker vessel for transportation.

Buy Water for Delivery with Charter Vessel Option:
Clients can opt to purchase water with the convenience of having it delivered to their destination. This engagement type includes a down payment for chartering a vessel, ensuring low client involvement and relying on North Waters team of experts.

Emergency Insurance with a subscription:
Acknowledging the urgency of emergency situations, North Water Greenland offers an insurance-backed subscription service. In the event of a crisis, clients with this subscription can have water delivered promptly to address acute water shortages.

Addressing Emergency Water Shortages:
Emergency water shortages demand swift and decisive action. North Water Greenland recognises the critical nature of such situations, whether triggered by natural disasters or human-made crises. Our strategic water reserve is a key component in the arsenal of tools available to respond to these emergencies effectively.

By collaborating with local authorities, organisations, and communities, we aim to fortify preparedness and resilience against water crises. Our approach goes beyond delivering water; it involves building a network of support, knowledge-sharing, and proactive measures to safeguard public health during emergencies.

In conclusion, North Water Greenland's strategic water reserve is more than a product; it's a lifeline for communities facing water challenges. We invite governments, defence organisations, emergency relief agencies, and humanitarian organisations to join hands with us in creating a more water-secure and sustainable world. Together, we can turn the tide against water scarcity and ensure that clean, safe water is a right accessible to all, even in the most challenging times.
