Xylem Wins Contract To Supply Sweden’s Largest UV Disinfection Facility For Drinking Water

Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, announced today that it has won a contract to provide ultraviolet (UV) drinking water treatment solutions to the largest UV disinfection project ever undertaken in Sweden. The Xylem solutions will help deliver clean, treated drinking water to 900,000 people across 16 municipalities. The facility will have the capacity to handle a potential 25 percent increase in water volume to support future population growth.

Xylem will provide four WEDECO K- Series UV disinfection systems to upgrade the Sydvatten AB Waterworks in the Scania (Skåne) region in southern Sweden. Xylem’s UV systems were chosen for their flexible and innovative design, low lifecycle costs, negligible environmental impact and ability to handle large volumes of water in the most efficient manner possible, while catering to potential future plant expansion.

“Being involved in the development of the largest UV disinfection facility in Sweden is further evidence of our world-leading expertise in UV and ozone water treatment,” said Ron Port, vice president for Xylem’s treatment business unit. “Our advanced, sustainable technologies will help to address challenges at Sydvatten AB Waterworks and will deliver chemical-free, clean and safe water for southern Sweden.”

The Sydvatten AB Waterworks drinking water treatment plant has been in operation since 1966. Xylem’s UV systems will complement existing traditional treatment methods to eliminate bacteria, viruses and parasites.
