Xantrex Technology supports relief missions

Xantrex Technology, a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, is actively supporting two outreach programs - the Floating Doctors and the Planetary Coral Reef Foundation - both of which are using its recently launched Freedom SW products to power their missions.

The Floating Doctors is a non-profit medical relief team dedicated to reducing the present and future burden of disease in the developing world, and promoting improvements in health care delivery.

The Floating Doctors is using the recently refitted expedition sailboat Southern Wind to deliver medical relief to thousands in the most remote coastal areas of the world.

"The Xantrex Freedom SW is allowing us to keep all of our systems aboard operating at peak efficiency throughout our transport from clinic to clinic," said Floating Doctors vice president Ryan McCormick, in a statement. "As we travel from port to port, providing free quality health care and health education to the most impoverished and isolated populations throughout Haiti, Central America and the Eastern Pacific, the Freedom SW 2000 provides peace of mind and the reliable ability to keep our vessel operating and on the move."

A second effort supported by Xantrex involves offshore marine conservation launched by the Planetary Coral Reef Foundation. Xantrex has supported this effort with the donation of its Freedom SW inverter/charger system for use during a scientific journey aboard Mir, a recently restored and specially equipped 113-foot ketch that set sail for work in South Asia.

"Xantrex's valuable contribution provides us the necessary support for our programs at sea," Planetary Coral Reef Foundation president Abigail Alling said in a statement.
