Bureau of Reclamation Installs Hydro-OpticTM UV System for Mussel Control at Parker Dam

Hydroelectric & Cooling Water

Parker Dam is a hydroelectric facility with a nameplate capacity of approximately 200 megawatts that is managed by the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) Lower Colorado Dam Office. Following the spread of quagga mussels to Lake Mead, Reclamation began a feasibility study in 2007 to identify control options that could protect their facilities (Hoover, Davis, and Parker Dams) while having little to no environmental or ecological impact. Following the evaluation of various chemical and non-chemical control methodologies, the Hydro-OpticTM (HOD) UV treatment system was selected as the preferred treatment to supplement operational and mechanical activities already in place at Parker Dam...Read More

Hydro Review: Experiences with Using HOD UV Technology to Control Mussel Fouling

Hydroelectric & Cooling Water

The Lower Colorado Dam Office of the U.S. Department of Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation is responsible for maintaining the Hoover, Davis, and Parker dams and their associated hydroelectric plants. Hoover has a generating capacity of 2,080 MW, Davis has a capacity of 250 MW and Parker 200MW. These hydroelectric facilities are essential to the coordinated operations of the Lower Colorado Dam Office, aiding in the reliable delivery of urban and agricultural water to the region...Read More

Ontario Power Generation DeCew II Generating Station Installs Hydro-OpticTM UV System to Mitigate Invasive Mussels

Hydroelectric & Cooling Water

The Ontario Power Generation (OPG) DeCew II Generating Station (NF23) is a hydroelectric facility with a nameplate capacity of 144 megawatts. Following the spread of zebra mussels to the Great Lakes in 1988, OPG installed chlorination systems in the early 1990s to mitigate their threat. However, new organizational environmental policies resulted in OPG’s evaluation of environmentally friendly methods of controlling invasive mussels that do not expose fish, plants and other aquatic life to hazardous chemicals. Additionally, OPG wanted to reduce the hazards of chemical exposure to its staff...Read More

Atlantium’s Patented Medium-Pressure UV Dose for IPN Inactivation

Fish Protection

Infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) is considered one of the most lethal and wide-spread viral diseases responsible for mortality in salmon production around the world. What makes IPN especially challenging is that the virus is known to be very resistant to UV light, requiring a low- pressure UV dose for inactivation ranging between 150-250 mJ/cm2...Read More

Canadian Fish Hatchery, Sam Livingston, Chooses Hydro-OpticTM UV for Water Biosecurity

Fish Protection

To eliminate the risk of potential diseases that can impact fish health, Sam Livingston, one of North America’s largest fish hatcheries located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, chose Atlantium Technologies’ Hydro-OpticTM (HOD) UV as the primary disinfection technology. With proven performance in delivering unparalleled water biosecurity in the aquaculture market and the ability to address 4-log inactivation of pathogens, the medium-pressure HOD UV provided the facility a proven solution for the protection of Myxobolus Cerebralis, Renibacterium Salmoninarum and Myxosporean...Read More
