 Wastewater treatment plant in Vigo to get UV

Xylem has won a contract valued at approximately $2.75 million to supply Wedeco-brand ultraviolet (UV) technologies to a wastewater treatment facility in the Vigo region of southwest Spain.

With a treatment capacity of 147,000 m3/day, the facility will be the largest bio-filtration and UV wastewater treatment plant in Spain. With 1,100 UV lamps, it will also be one of the biggest in Europe when the two-phase development is completed in 2016, according to Xylem.

While construction work for the new biofiltration plant is being carried out, a bypass treatment system will be put in place. This consists of primary wastewater treatment followed by Xylem’s Wedeco Duron UV disinfection system.

Kirsten Meyer, product manager for Xylem, said: “Due to the innovative inclined lamp arrangement and its highly energy efficient 600 watt Wedeco Ecoray lamps, total UV lamp count can be significantly reduced and maintenance simplified.”
