Export Deep Ocean Water

deepoceanwater.jpgHonolulu firm joins rush to export deep-ocean water
A new Oahu company soon will start tapping into one of Hawaii’s biggest exports — water.

Deep Ocean Hawaii early this week will launch its first vessel, the Spirit of the North, to harvest deep-ocean water 3.4 miles off the Waianae coast.

Honolulu-based Deep Ocean says it is the first company to use a mobile system to pump deep seawater, instead of piping it from shore.

This article talks about how a company is about to start exporting deep ocean water for commericial use. The enticing usage of this water is that nothing man-made should have contaminated the water.

Sooo at first I was thinking they were just pulling up deep ocean water for I dunno…water change purposes? HAHA! But what they do is desalinate the ocean water and sell them for a variety of product purposes.

I think this is a good idea. The ocean is so huge that before technology, we couldn’t harvest drinking water from it but now that we can, it’ll put less stress on where we normally get our water (no..not the faucet). Eventually I hope this technology cost is lowered to a point where most countries can take advantage of this. First place that comes to mind are drought-ridden countries like Africa. Everyone is surrounded by ocean and that would be one step forward.
