Proteus / Jerrycan


The typical jerrycan used in disaster zones fulfils its function as a container to carry water, however there are several aspects that can be significantly improved and optimised.

The Proteus intend to be an inclusive jerrycan optimized for humanitarian logistics that can firstly respond to the daily challenges of deprived populations in areas with scarce water resources or populations that due to some catastrophe undergo an equal period of scarcity.
Moreover, this project intends to offer solutions that will enhance the affectivity and efficiency on the panorama of humanitarian aid operations.
