An Environmentally Friendly Hydropower Solution
Biofouling from aquatic invasive species (AIS) has profound operational impacts. Mussels and other AIS attach to or clog submerged surfaces including water intakes, trashracks, cooling water piping, fire control systems and more – resulting in flow restrictions and blockages that threaten water delivery and power reliability. The associated costs from lost power production can be significant.
For more than a decade, Atlantium has been working to apply our environmentally sustainable HOD UV disinfection technology to help hydroelectric facilities prevent biofouling from invasive mussel species and their profound operational effects.
The HOD UV treatment solution is proven effective at controlling biofouling from mussels and other AIS, enabling cleaner and more efficient heat transfer in cooling water exchangers. HOD UV is a cost-effective non-chemical solution that eliminates the need for corrosive chemicals when treating AIS.
