We recently used these or similar machines to deliver clean water to 40,000 residents of a Sri Lanka displacement camp, and before that to 50,000 people in Honduras after extensive flooding in 2008.
The assistance is part of ITT's three-year, $1 million commitment to help provide safe water during emergencies created by natural catastrophes such as floods, droughts and earthquakes.
The standalone, portable, self-contained devices are on the move to Port-au-Prince from where they've been stored - waiting for an emergency like this - in Norway and Honduras.
We're also anticipating delivery of three desalinization devices, which would provide the option of making nearby seawater fit for drinking. These are coming from Texas.
