Aug. 5, 2015 -- Primozone, a Swedish ozone generator supplier, has won a public tender to supply an ozone installation -- worth approximately 3 million euros ($3.26 million) -- for the expansion of the Langevatn drinking water treatment plant, located outside the city of Stavanger, Norway.
Primozone was invited to bid for the public tender in competition with a variety of major global ozone technology manufacturers. The evaluation criteria for the public tender focused on cost, particularly on total cost of ownership for the installation -- criteria that fit well with the features of the Primozone ozone technology.
The designed ozone volume is 960 kg/day. Langevatn drinking water treatment plant is expanded due to increased population and a goal to remove color, taste and odor in the water. This is done by adding ozone and biofiltration as treatment steps. These will also serve as an extra barrier (i.e., an extra added treatment step that will prevent bacteria and other pathogens from entering the drinking water).
Ozone is an environmentally friendly water treatment technology that has been used for more than 100 years. Ozone is very oxidative and contains powerful gas that is used for disinfection, conditioning and reduction of hard-to-remove substances such as pharmaceutical residue.
Traditionally, ozone generation has been associated with being a complicated technology with high maintenance and high energy consumption. Primozone provides energy-efficient ozone generators that are easy to operate, as well as produce ozone with a very high ozone concentration. This concentration enables for energy saving throughout the entire ozone water treatment system.
