Validated and Certified UV Disinfection Solutions
Proud to be supporting UK municipal water companies
Ensuring a safe & clean water supply and protecting our waterways from the wastewater we generate is the essential work of our water companies in the UK. We understand water companies are facing a range of pressing and interlinked challenges:
- Climate change
- Environmental protection
- Population growth
- Risk of drought
- Water resilience
Daro and Daro Aquafides alliance see it as our responsibility to work collaboratively and deliver a water supply system that is reliable, sustainable and affordable.
Daro-Aquafides series of validated UV reactors are designed for maximum performance and operational resilience. Our systems embrace the latest and very best technology to deliver new, compact, low energy, durable and reliable UV solutions that are easy and cost-effective to maintain; and include extended lamp-life warranties.
We understand the water industry is under pressure to make best use of available & developing technologies and may need to look to additional resources such as water reuse (UV-AOP/desalination) and winter storage, as just two examples.
Understanding these drivers and including UV technology as part of this resilience mapping, is key to water companies and their Water Resource Management Planning. UV is a cost-effective option to maintaining a safe supply of water and wastewater discharge.
The Daro Aquafides Alliance
British UV manufacturer Daro UV, part of Daro Group, and international Austrian based Aquafides, in 2020 formed a strategic alliance to deliver certified ultraviolet disinfection solutions to the UK municipal and industrial water treatment markets.
As a result of a management buyout (MBO) Daro UV Systems was founded in 2007 and is now an integral part of Daro Group. For over 40 years the East Anglian based UV experts have been designing, manufacturing and successfully delivering UV disinfection systems nationwide. During this time, Daro UV has created a name that is synonymous with quality solutions.
Founded in 2008, the highly specialist team at Aquafides is made up exclusively of employees with decades of experience in water treatment and a comprehensive range of UV disinfection solutions. The company also manufacturers its own range of UV disinfection products that are compact, low energy, durable, reliable and easy to maintain.
The alliance’s mission is to provide collaborative consultation alongside certified UV solutions to support custodians of consumer health and the environment in their delivery of safe water; without the use of chemicals and production of harmful by-products.
The alliance reflects the dovetail fit of the strategies of both companies that focuses on quality, sustainability and flexibility for customers.
