Pall Corp. Freshwater Generators Selected by BAE for UK Royal Navy Ships


Pall Corporation (NYSE: PLL) announced that it has been selected by BAE Systems to supply freshwater generator systems for the UK Royal Navy's Type 45 Destroyer. The Type 45 ships are designed and built by BAE Systems and are the most advanced warships ever produced in the UK. The Pall Integrated Membrane System (IMS)/ freshwater generator is designed to transform any type of sea water into drinkable water. Sea trials have demonstrated that it works efficiently with the high contamination levels found in some coastal waters. The fully automatic, cleanable IMS helps reduce maintenance tasks and has a lower cost of ownership compared to conventional water treatment systems.

It is a versatile platform capable of contributing to worldwide maritime and joint operations in multi threat environments. It is essential that these ships can produce fresh water wherever they are operating; we were very pleased with the performance of Pall's IMS for delivering fresh water supplies during the ship's deployment.”
