Electrolytic Disinfection in Waterworks
In 2006, a new factory in a Russian water works was handed over ready for on-site production of 0.8% sodium hypochlorite. Newtec was in charge of planning of the factory including its building up to system delivery and commissioning (EPC). Since then, the plant operates around the clock; with a total generation capacity of 320 kg of active chlorine per hour, for the disinfection of 1,3 Mio. m3 of drinking water per day.
The application of newtec technology and thus the avoidance of dangerous chlorine gas in one of the largest water plants in Europe demonstrates for the first time its feasibility and superiority for the disinfection in large waterworks
