Stockholm, Sweden, January 4, 2017 – Bluewater, a global leader in next generation water purification technologies, announced today it has partnered with the Swedish challenger for the 2017 America’s Cup Artemis Racing. Under the agreement, Bluewater has supplied, installed and will maintain a bespoke purified water delivery system harnessing three of the company’s high-performance, yet compact direct-flow Pro water purifiers to help ensure cleaner, safer tap water is available on demand to the athletes and support staff at the Artemis Racing team base in Bermuda.
“The America’s Cup is one of the world’s toughest competitions that stretches sailors to the very limit of their physical abilities and puts huge demands on optimizing hydration to sustain performance,” said Bengt Rittri, Bluewater founder and chairman.“We are extremely excited about partnering with Artemis Racing’s amazing team who are competing against the elite of the elite in the competitive yachting world.”

A Bluewater Pro range water purifier easily generates 52 gallons of purified tap drinking water every hour, 24/7, efficiently removing toxic metals such as lead as well as chemicals, microorganisms and pharmaceutical by-products. Using 82% less water than a traditional reverse osmosis water purifier, a Bluewater Pro unit will deliver 1,248 gallons of purified water per day, which equals 4,726 one-liter (33.8 fl.oz) bottle of water over 24 hours.
Bengt Rittri said that the Artemis Racing team live and breathe the vision of being the most sustainable and environmentally responsible team competing in the America’s Cup, the world’s oldest sporting trophy. A unique feature of the Bluewater installation is that all three Bluewater Pro units are plumbed to return the wastewater or concentrate water generated by all reverse osmosis systems back to the storage tanks to be re-used – creating a virtual zero waste and fully reclaimable RO system.
“The America’s Cup and Artemis Racing give Bluewater a truly dynamic, real-world platform to showcase our innovative, advanced residential water purification technologies and show just how fantastic our solutions are at giving people the chance to generate their own amazing water at home or in the workplace rather than buying costly bottled water,” Bengt Rittri said.
