Canada Helps Address Hong Kong’s Waste-water Challenges

May 24, 2014 - Hong Kong, China - The Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade, visits the Hong Kong Pillar Point Sewage Treatment Works, where Ontario-based Trojan Technologies has recently completed installation of an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system. The project represents the largest contract for Trojan Technologies in China in a single order to date.

Trojan Technologies specializes in the design, manufacture and sale of UV disinfection systems for municipal waste water; drinking water systems for residential, municipal and commercial use; and industrial systems for food and beverage, pharmaceutical and semiconductor applications. Trojan Technologies has employees in 10 offices around the world, and there are 8,500 Trojan UV installations in 102 countries.

The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service has worked with Trojan Technologies on an ongoing basis to provide the company with support in pursuing projects outside Canada. For example, Trojan Technologies has participated in several sustainable technologies trade missions organized by the Trade Commissioner Service in Hong Kong. The company has now completed a number of projects in Hong Kong, with over 20 installations to date in local waste-water treatment facilities.

Minister Fast is leading a trade mission to Shanghai, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong from May 18 to 24, 2014, to deepen Canada’s commercial relationships with China.
