Severn Trent Services to supply Chinese nuclear plant

Water and wastewater service provider Severn Trent Services (STS) has won a contract to supply a chlorine dioxide generator to a nuclear plant in China.

STS, which operates in the UK and Ireland, US and Italy, will provide the Taishan nuclear plant in the Guangdong province of China with its Capital Controls chlorine dioxide generator.

It is anticipated that the generator, which uses an all-liquid and vacuum system to eject concentrated chlorine dioxide and pump it into the treatment process, will support phase one of the nuclear plant’s water purification project, which aims to treat 22c um per day by removing algae growth in cooling towers in a bid to reduce the number of tower clean-up cycles.
