After the completion of an extensive evaluation process, TrojanUV has been selected as the UV supplier for the disinfection conversion and upgrade project at the Ashbridges Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant in Toronto, Ontario. It is the largest secondary treatment plant in Canada, with a rated flow capacity of 216 million gallons per day and peak flow of 528 million gallons per day.

UV will become the plant’s main method of disinfection (replacing chlorine) and will provide broad spectrum disinfection of a wide range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses and protozoa. The design will consist of 12 channels, each containing two TrojanUVSigna banks of UV lamps. It is slated to be the largest TrojanUVSigna installation to date.

“We pride ourselves on helping municipalities build and provide water confidence, and are looking forward to working on this exciting project,” says Marv DeVries, president of Trojan Technologies. “At Trojan, we are continuously engineering and innovating for our customers, and our TrojanUVSigna is a prime example. It provides municipalities and treatment plant superintendents and operators with an environmentally responsible disinfection alternative that is compact, energy efficient, and easy to maintain.”

Project design, equipment manufacturing and UV building construction will be completed in late 2019.
