ITT Awarded UV Water Disinfection Contract


ITT Industries, a leading provider of water treatment technology, announced that it has been awarded a sole source Ultraviolet (UV) Water Framework contract by United Utilities Plc. of the United Kingdom. This is the first major framework contact award for UV potable water disinfection by a U.K. utility.

The contract calls for the design, supply, installation, testing, commission and maintenance of ITT's WEDECO Enclosed Ultraviolet Reactor Systems for potable water disinfection. The United Utilities contract covers a period of two years with an option to extend. The contract award was based on ITT WEDECO designing and supplying seven water treatment plants throughout Northwest England. Each UV treatment system is designed to fit local needs, but initial designs may treat flows up to 72 million liters of water per day. Over the contract period, the installed base may be valued in excess of $2.5 million.

"As a leader in water treatment, ITT is pleased to bring our focus on life-cycle costs, maintenance, technical support, and global reach to help United Utilities meet their customers' need for clean water," said Andre Dhawan, president of ITT's WEDECO business. "We hope to build on this award and develop further our strong relationship with United Utilities to include their other facilities as they expand worldwide."
