On Kuryanovskoy treatment plant began commissioning the world’s largest block of disinfection of treated waste water by UV irradiation. Unique equipment on May 29 praised the mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin.
The design capacity of a UV disinfection — 3 million cubic meters per day. The installation consists of 160 workers and 10 reserve UV modules and their total capacity exceeding 3.6 MW. 6120 is used for disinfection of UV lamps.
This technology ensures that sanitary requirements for purified wastewater prior to discharge into natural water bodies. At the same time destroyed the bacteria, viruses and parasites that are harmful to humans and animals (including cholera, typhoid, dysentery, hepatitis A, and others).
