Trojan Technologies Awarded First Contract For UVSwift Municipal Drinking Water Disinfection System
Trojan Technologies Inc. has been awarded its first contract to supply the Trojan UVSwift(TM) Municipal Drinking Water Disinfection System.
The contract, for two ultraviolet (UV) disinfection units, was awarded by the Town of Ontario, New York.
The systems will disinfect drinking water supplied to a service area of approximately 30,000 people. The two Trojan UVSwift(TM) units have been designed to be installed in an existing drinking water facility in order to implement a multi-barrier disinfection strategy, combining UV technology with traditional chemical disinfection.
Bob Wykle, Water Utilities Superintendent for the Town of Ontario, New York said: "We've had a very successful working relationship with Trojan for a number of years. We selected the Trojan UVSwift(TM) technology because we believe that Trojan has developed the most advanced and reliable system available in the market today."
"We're very pleased to have received the award for this drinking water system because it demonstrates the role of Trojan's UVSwift(TM) product line in supporting smaller communities' implementation of a multi-barrier disinfection strategy. Through the addition of UV disinfection, they can protect their residents from a complete range of pathogens for less than US$100,000." said Marvin DeVries, Chief Operating Officer. "The flexibility of the Trojan UVSwift(TM) system enables it to be designed to effectively treat drinking water for large municipalities as well."
Since the product launch in June 2000, Trojan has submitted initial quotations on more than $100 million worth of projects for the disinfection of municipal drinking water supplies globally. Municipal demonstration systems have been installed at treatment sites in both North America, (including a trial in the community of North Bay, Ontario) and in Europe.
