Troll research station - conserving water in the Antarctic
In the driest, coldest and most uninhabited continent on earth, there is plenty of water - frozen water. But in a desert of ice, all water supplies must be produced by thawing that very ice: a perfect Jets™ scenario. Using a recently installed Jets™ vacuum system, water use for toilets at the Troll research station has been reduced to one tenth of that needed by gravity water toilets.
And with a sewage treatment plant on-site, treated water recovered from that plant can be used for flushing the Jets™ toilets.
Jets™ was the supplier of choice for the Troll Antarctic research station, which we think is a great testimony to both the build quality and water saving properties of our products. In extreme polar conditions you don't want to thaw any more ice than you have to.
