Trojan receives $2.4M order for UV systems at California wastewater re-use facility
LONDON, ONT-Trojan Technologies has received an order to supply $2.4 million worth of its UV3000Plus(tm) ultraviolet (UV) water treatment systems for a wastewater re-use facility in Lodi, California. The plant is currently being upgraded to meet stricter treatment regulations in California. The installation will be carried out during 2004. In Lodi, wastewater must be treated to a higher standard to achieve water quality standards required for the protection of the environmentally sensitive Sacramento-San Joaquin delta. Wastewater is treated and re-used for irrigation of crops not intended for human consumption. In recent years, the city has also supplied recycled water to produce steam for power generation. The UV3000Plus system has been validated through third-party bioassay testing and has received acceptance from the California Department of Health Services to meet the strict National Water Research Institute (NWRI) guidelines for wastewater re-use applications. Trojan's systems use a series of specialized lamps to produce UV energy which destroys water-borne pathogens such as E coli, giardia and cryptosporidium. The systems also use a patented lamp cleaning technology (ActiCleanTM), which ensures maximum lamp output reducing operating, maintenance and labour costs.
