Paul Mendieta, CEO of Deploy (Water Storage Tanks | Deploy (, will be presenting the company’s innovative range of air-deployed water tanks, made with concrete-filled fabric, at The World Economic Forum in Davos on 25 May 2022.

The Deploy project was born in 2020 after a team, including Paul, interacted with over 170 communities in Ecuador and analysed their water-related issues.  The product is now being launched in the UK – with specific focus, at present, on the agricultural sector.

The Deploy Range

Designated ‘R’ for Rural, there are three separate sizes in the range, all two metres in height but varying in diameter.  The entry level 14R is three metres in diameter and has a capacity of 14,000 litres.  The 25R is four metres across and has a capacity of 25,000 litres while the largest, 40R is five metres in diameter and will hold 40,000 litres.

The key to their ‘deploy-ability’ is the Concrete Canvas. A cement-filled geotextile used for their construction means they can be folded up for shipment and delivered to site in a timber crate, measuring just 2.5m by 1.2m.  The two-man installation team then simply connects a compressor to one of the PVC-U taps to inflate the structure before the outer surface is hydrated and left to cure.  Ready for use at the end of the second day, the versatile tanks will give robust, weather resistant service for 25+ years in applications including drinking water supply, farming, rainwater harvesting and emergency situations including firefighting.

Paul explains, “It is a great honour to have been invited to speak at the Green Accelerator Programme at The World Economic Forum. Water is essential to sustaining life: and trying to maintain its availability has therefore preoccupied humankind since the earliest civilisations.”

Paul and Beren Kayali (co-founders) are passionate about environmental issues as well as public health and other life challenges faced by people across the globe.  This includes the fact that an estimated 2.2 billion people lack access to safe drinking water and that, in just a few years from now, half the world’s population will be living in water-stressed regions.  This fact also impacts on the difficulty in dealing with the growing number of wildfires which break out every year in countries from Australia to the northern parts of Europe.

Paul confirmed: “Our intermediate and long-term goals are to develop the product so it can be used for rural water systems in developed and developing countries.  We want to help vulnerable populations around the world that do not have access to safely managed drinking water.  We have calculated that a single Deploy water tank could help communities of up to 2,000 people.”
