Arihant Water Park Equipment recently won the 2020 CII Award, the 10th edition of these
awards organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry.
The event was themed on “Atmanirbhar Bharat (Self Reliant India),” the government initiative of
a self-sufficient India. Designs, products, and other cutting-edge solutions exhibited at the event
were primarily based on this theme.

It is a theme that uses design, research, and development to encourage business continuity, industrial growth, and economic viability with long-term scope .A grand jury, comprising 16 eminent personalities from the international design community,
including from Japan, South Korea, and Kenya, picked Arihant’s “Treasure Ship” product as the
winning design over 20+ other shortlisted products in its category.


The “Treasure Ship Attraction” was conceptualized as a move away from conventional “Water
Play Systems.” The idea was to create an unconventional product that engaged consumers with
an immersive experience themed on storytelling. After deep customer research and global
competitor analysis, a highly-engaging modular pirate ship was seen as an appropriate theme
that could increase investors’ ROI, such as real estate developers, park owners, and hotels.
Apart from its primary function as a water play structure, the Treasure Ship has multi-user
capabilities and could host Private parties and themed events.

Due to its larger-than-life concept, boasting four levels, nine slides, and over 50 water features, the
product can function as a “mini water park” in itself and produce a unique branding opportunity
for the park owner, which could also be monetized through merchandising.
Commenting on the award, Kalpesh Mistry, the Head of Innovation at Arihant, emphasized its
innovation and self-sufficiency.
“We are extremely humbled to win this award. Traditionally, water play structures are designed
with an ‘Engineering first, Theme second’ approach. We designed this product with a ‘Theme
first, Engineering second’ approach. We wanted to develop a revolutionary concept that was
highly immersive, retaining consumers even outside normal play activities, to increase ROI. So,
we created this “mini water park” that can do so much more for the park owners. This is the
future of water play structures in India and the world.”
