Calgon Carbon Corporation (Calgon Carbon) has received a contract of worth $5 million from PCL Civil Constructors, Inc. (PCL) to deliver Sentinel UV disinfection systems (UV systems) at the City of San Francisco's Tesla Portal drinking water plant. The company has scheduled to install twelve Sentinel Chevron 48 reactors at the plant in early 2010. These reactors will treat up to 320 million gallons of drinking water per day.

The Chevron 48 is the company’s new Sentinel product line. It can treat up to 45 million gallons of water per day. The company’s ongoing product advancements support San Francisco’s goal to provide safe drinking water to its customers and to comply with federal regulations for the control of Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and other waterborne organisms.

In earlier 2008, the company had received contracts to supply a total of 14 Sentinel UV disinfection systems for Singapore’s Johor River Water Treatment Works and Indianapolis’ White River Facility. When installation of those systems is complete, they will have the capability of treating more than 350 million gallons of drinking water per day.

Jim Sullivan, Calgon Carbon’s vice president of UV Technologies said, ‘We are pleased that the City of San Francisco selected our newest Sentinel(R) design to meet their disinfection needs. The commercialization of the Chevron 48 exemplifies our successful product development efforts in UV technology as well as our strong position in the growing, drinking water disinfection market worldwide.’
