Trojan Technologies has won a US $800 000 contract from Sharjah Municipality for a sewage disinfection plant, the company announced in Dubai. When finished the plant will use untraviolet technologies to clean the water. “We have secured the order under the Municipality’s Phase 6 Sewage Treatment Facility for tertiary treated sewage disinfection using state-of-art ultraviolet disinfection technology,” says S Sudeep, group general manager for Asia and Africa for Hydromagx Technology Group, which represents the Canadian principal. The overall project’s main contractor is CCC/Acwa. “The plant that we will set up will treat 130 000 m3/day of sewage. We won the order in May and we expect to commission the plant by May next year,” Sudeep says. He adds Sharjah will be the first municipality in the UAE to use the ultraviolet disinfection method. “All other municipalities are looking at how this works out.” Ultraviolet disinfection is better than chlorination in several respects. First, chlorine is difficult to handle and is hazardous. It is carcinogenic and harmful. Trojan Technologies is a Canadian firm that has developed the ultraviolet disinfection technology. It has over 3000 installations worldwide and controls 75% of the UV disinfection market. Hydormagx has also won a Dhs 150 000 contract for the disinfection of drinking water at Dubai Central Prison. The contract was awarded in October this year.
