Mr. Breno Horsth, Logistics Coordinator for Norwegian Red Cross (l.) and Mr. Lars Christensson, CEO of A-Aqua during the signing
The Norwegian Red Cross and A-Aqua AS have signed a five-year agreement for the supply of the VacuSan™ system. The system consists of sanitation units and uses vacuum technology similar to that found in airplanes or on boats suitable for tented camps and hospitals in an emergency setting.
“To ensure that our products address the ever-changing needs of the humanitarian community, we maintain a close dialogue with our clients,” says Mathias Anderson, Sales and Business Development Manager for A-Aqua, who himself has worked in humanitarian aid and development for many years. “We are extremely grateful to the Norwegian Red Cross for their feedback which has helped us in making a great product even better. This agreement shows that our products are state-of-the-art and at the same time competitive on the international humanitarian market.”
As part of the agreement, A-Aqua will also be providing training to Delegates from the Norwegian Red Cross to prepare them for using the equipment on their next deployment.
A-Aqua, a Norwegian company based near Oslo, has more than thirty years’ experience in delivering water-treatment and sanitation equipment to humanitarian actors.
The Norwegian Red Cross was founded as early as 1865 and is a humanitarian organisation whose work is driven by a desire to help others. It is committed to, and bound by, the fundamental principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and acts as a guardian of the Geneva Conventions.
