The North Wind Group, who has been awarded a contract by the Bureau of Reclamation to provide UV lights and associated piping at Hoover Dam, has selected Atlantium Technologies Ltd. to provide their Hydro-Optic (HOD) UV technology for non-chemical macro and micro biofouling control.
The presence of the quagga mussel in Lake Mead is a primary concern because of the threat to water delivery and power reliability. North Wind selected the HOD UV technology as the preferred treatment to supplement operational and mechanical activities already in place at Hoover Dam.
The HOD UV technology will help to minimize the risk of mussel fouling by preventing invasion and infestation at Hoover Dam. Delivery of 16 HOD UV systems will take place in October 2017, the installation will be handled by North Wind.
Atlantium Technologies Ltd. is a global leader in UV treatment solutions for municipal and industrial applications. Atlantium's Hydro-Optic (HOD) UV system is a proven and effective alternative to chemically based treatment technologies. Atlantium’s patented “Total Internal Reflection” Technology, which is similar to fiber optic science, recycles UV light energy within the HOD UV chamber. The HOD UV system is unique in its ability to automatically and efficiently maintain a UV dose to meet application specific needs. Facilities looking to achieve non-chemical disinfection, dechlorination, or oxidation will benefit from the use of the HOD UV technology.
