Swedish ozone generator supplier Primozone has been selected to provide complete ozone packages, including a number of new high capacity and energy efficient ozone generators, for the £16 million state-of-the-art water treatment works being built in York, UK. The Acomb Landing project will provide water to the residents of York from early 2013. Primozone is a Swedish supplier of ‘new generation’ efficient and energy efficient ozone generators for water treatment.
The new £16 million new water treatment works presently being built at Acomb Landing in York will replace the ageing current water treatment works which has provided drinking water to residents of York since 1846. The new treatment works will not only be able to treat more water - around 35,000,000 litres per day - but it will also boast state-of-the-art treatment facilities which will ensure it exceeds stringent water quality standards, with residents of York receiving better quality drinking water than ever before.
Primozone has been chosen over much larger rivals to supply the complete ozone package needed to remove pesticides from the water at the new works. The package includes not only Primozone’s new patented super-efficient and energy efficient ozone generators, but also control systems, measuring tools, dissolution mixing systems, static mixers, ozone destructors et al.
Primozone’s ozone treatment solutions were specifically requested by both Yorkshire Water and AECOM, the design/builder of Acomb Landing, as the best of all available options. The project commenced in May this year and is expected to take around 20 months to complete. Primozone will deliver its ozone package in January 2012.
“We are very happy to have been chosen for this prestigious and groundbreaking project”, said Anders Schening, CEO, Primozone. “The Acomb Landing water treatment works has been designed to be as modern, safe and efficient as possible, and Primozone’s new efficient and energy efficient ozone generators are perfectly matched to contribute to give York’s residents some of the best quality drinking water in the world.”
“The fact that highly knowledgeable professional industry professionals like Yorkshire Water and AECOM prefer Primozone’s solutions, is a clear evidence of our success in developing ozone generators that are technically superior and, in my opinion, truly game-changing.”
Primozone’s new products use up to 70 per cent less energy
Primozone recently launched its series of new innovative ozone generators that generate far more ozone while using far less energy than other ozone generators on the market. The new ozone generators are based on a patented new method to generate ozone in high concentrations through a very efficient cold plasma process.
Water treatment with ozone is highly effective and harmless to the environment, as opposed to treatment with chemicals like chlorine. Oxidation by ozone kills microorganisms and cleans, treats, and disinfects water. It can also be used to control the taste, odor and colour of water.
Primozone’s new range of patented ozone generators produces between 100 and 900 grams of ozone per hour, with an ozone concentration of up to or more than 300 g 03/Nm³O2, or 20 per cent by weight, which is many times higher than competing products. The high ozone concentration results in greatly improved efficiency in dissolving the ozone gas in the water, and a sharply reduced oxygen and energy consumption – with Primozone’s new products using up to 70 per cent less energy.
In addition to being very efficient and energy efficient, Primozone’s new product range of ozone generators are highly reliable, compact in size, easy to install and maintain, and with a built-in flexible modern monitoring and control system – all distinguishing them from today’s ozone generators that are infamous for being unreliable and with very high long term operating and maintenance costs.
