When looking at how to keep drinking water safe and clean, a water tank seems an obvious solution. Useful for potable water storage for drinking, washing and sanitation purposes, a water tank can protect this vital resource. Nevertheless, in a rural setting, the delivery of large water tanks can be an insurmountable logistical and financial challenge. GreenCo Water saw this challenge, and provided a creative solution: the PakFlat Tank. 

The Pak Flat tank is a 1000 Litre water tank that comes in a box, assembles in minutes, and weights only 23kg when assembled. Compared to a standard roto-mould tank, which is pre-built, bulky, and therefore logistically challenging to move, this unique tank solution can be distributed to remote destinations anywhere in the world. From Vanuatu to Sudan, this product has successfully delivered a water storage solution in humanitarian and early water recovery needs, as well as long term storage for households, community facilities, medical centres and schools.

A recent example of its successful distribution is the Itokama project. Access to the Itokama region in Papua New Guinea is difficult, with goods needing to be flown in due to the lack of other transport infrastructure, making other water tank storage impossible. Now, the Itokama region has PakFlat tanks installed in 3 different villages, now provide safe water storage for communities containing 4,000 people.
