The WinkBall Project Screens Subsea Bringing Clean Water to the World

New video messaging system will enable Subsea Infrastructure to keep stakeholders updated with desalination projects worldwide.

The work conducted by Subsea has already made a huge difference to the lives of people in Cyprus and it is vital that they are able to share this with interested parties. With a project of this magnitude it would be difficult to truly share the achievements through text and even photography - only through video does the scale of the project really come across.

Online video communication service, the Winkball Project, has today announced the launch of a project with desalination infrastructure provider, Subsea, to build an online video communication service to keep stakeholders up to date on the progress of desalination projects it is setting up worldwide.

The WinkBall Project have created a version of their WinkBall Base internal video communications system which enables Subsea Infrastructure to send project stakeholders video messages outlining key milestones in the construction of desalination projects the company is undertaking worldwide to bring clean water to areas affected by drought. The WinkBall Project's system has also provided Subsea with a vital marketing tool - demonstrating to existing and prospective customers the strength of their construction techniques as part of their global Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.

The first use of the service has been during the construction of Subsea's flagship desalination plant in Moni, Cyprus, which has already delivered over 3 billion litres of drinking water since December. The system works by pumping approximately 45,000 cubic metres of seawater to pre-treatment and ultra-filtration units. The seawater is progressively filtered before entering reverse osmosis membranes at high pressure. 20,000 cubic metres of drinking water are then treated and ready for delivery.

The Moni desalination equipment is designed with mobility in mind: it will be placed on a ship and moved to another destination at the end of the current contract in 2011, leaving the current site totally clear.

The WinkBall Project's Managing Director, Dr. James Ohene-Djan, says, "The work conducted by Subsea has already made a huge difference to the lives of people in Cyprus and it is vital that they are able to share this with interested parties. With a project of this magnitude it would be difficult to truly share the achievements through text and even photography - only through video does the scale of the project really come across."

David Dwek, Director of Subsea Infrastructure says, "While working on a project of this unprecedented scale it is vital that we can communicate effectively with organisations from both the private and public sector, to keep them updated with the progress of the programme. Working with the WinkBall Project has enabled us to use video to move to a much more engaging form of collaborative working, where all parties involved can see at first hand the development of the project. Not only has the system been a helpful marketing tool, but it is with this innovative means of working together that we were able to execute the project in record time, providing a priceless resource for the people of Cyprus."
