Komodo Water produces and sells water and ice blocks for fishermen, fish sellers, and tourist boats. They use efficient reverse osmosis machines and icemakers powered by solar technology. The company purifies brackish water of TDS 9000 ppm into water with drinking quality of TDS 11-13 ppm certified by National Health Department.

Their ice blocks last longer than normal ice packs, allowing fishermen to go fishing further from areas where they reside.
