Hunter Shelters is pleased announce the current Press Release in conjunction with our
strategic partners below:
Following a successful pilot of
the Hunter Shelter and the STAR Solar
Power Generator for Superstorm Sandy
relief, both the Modular Hunter Shelter
and STAR Solar Power Generator is now
being evaluated for use in the battle
against Ebola in West Africa
Deer Park, NY, Monday 20 October 2014 - After serving as temporary home for Superstorm Sandy Gulf War Veteran Bruce Babbington and his two children thanks to a United Way $15,000 Grant, the Hunter Shelter On-Demand System and the STAR Solar Power Generator is now being evaluated for use in Africa in the fight against Ebola.
Shelter, now installed on the site of
the United Way LI in Deer Park as
demonstration and research center for
sustainable On-demand shelters, is being
reconfigured by Hunter and DSA in
collaboration with Stony Brook
University’s Contagious Disease Center.
Several configurations have been
developed for remote medical clinics,
containment and treatment centers and
cold chain storage facilities for
critical serums and vaccines and will be
powered by the STAR Solar Power
Solar Power System has also been used to
provide critical back-up power to people
at home during power outages and whose
lives depend upon Home Life Support
Equipment such as ventilators.
Key to the
Hunter Shelter is its portability and
sustainable advantage. The
Hunter Shelter, which was originally
designed and deployed in Haiti for post
earthquake relief, is constructed with
structurally insulated panels (SIP)
filled with 1.5 inches of two pound
density closed cell foam (the same
material used in refrigerators and
coolers). The panels are coated with 30
mills of polyuria, making the inside and
outside of the shelter easily sanitized
using the harshest of chemicals and
antibacterial products including bleach
and steam. The typical shelter can be
erected in less than three (3) hours and
shipped as a flat pack.
The combination of the STAR Solar Power Generator with its onboard water disinfecting system along with the Hunter Shelter is a complete standardized package providing electrical power, clean water and shelter to meet the critical energy and infrastructure needs of the Ebola eradication efforts in off-grid, rural areas of West Africa.
