Severn Trent Services has reached an agreement with UV manufacturer Hanovia Ltd. to develop and market UV disinfection systems for municipal drinking water and wastewater treatment.
Fort Washington, PA., Oct. 23, 2001 --To enhance disinfection solutions for customers throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico, Severn Trent Services has reached an agreement with UV manufacturer Hanovia Ltd. to develop and market UV disinfection systems for municipal drinking water and wastewater treatment.
The five-year agreement between the two companies provides Severn Trent Services with the latest UV technology available to target emerging markets for drinking water treatment. Hanovia's products will be marketed under the Severn Trent Services' FrontLine(tm) brand. The line also includes UV products for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment. FrontLine products are part of Severn Trent Services' overall disinfection solutions package, and may be integrated with other treatment technologies such as chemical and membrane disinfection, monitoring and advanced filtration.
Dr. Hu Fleming, vice president of Water Purification Solutions for Severn Trent Services stated, "Hanovia is the most recognized name in ultraviolet technology. We are very happy about working with them to further expand Severn Trent Services' capabilities to provide state-of-the-art solutions for drinking water and to enhance and maintain our position as the leading disinfection company in the world. Not only do we have an immediate product offering, but we will jointly work with Hanovia technologists to advance the development of UV solutions."
Severn Trent Services expects that the worldwide market for UV disinfection will grow dramatically over the next few years, with drinking water UV applications leading the way. The recent position taken by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the use of UV technologies in eliminating cryptosporidium from water helps in actualizing such market growth.
