Nuvonic's inline UV units for recirculating aquaculture systems have been approved by the NVI.

Bright future for UV company after it passes  Veterinary Institute tests


Nuvonic, a global ultraviolet (UV) light technology solutions provider owned by UK company Halma Group, has received approval from the Norwegian Veterinary Institute (NVI) for its range of inline water disinfection units.

Nuvonic provides six “RASline” models specially designed for efficient water treatment. Using medium-pressure UVC lamps, the compact, energy-efficient systems can be customised to target specific microorganisms and deliver precise dosages.

Owre Johnsen, an industrial equipment provider based in Norway, is partnering with Slough-headquartered Nuvonic and believes the NVI-approved UV systems will give further confidence in meeting the aquaculture industry’s biosecurity measures.

Precise control

Danny van Kuringen, Nuvonic’s regional sales manager for Central Europe, said: “We’re honoured to receive endorsement from the Norwegian Veterinary Institute. Nuvonic's NVI-approved UV systems empower aquaculture businesses by providing US Environmental Protection Agency-validated UV equipment to prevent fish diseases.

“This means our systems offer precise UV treatment control, enhanced effectiveness thanks to multi-wavelength lamp tech, space-saving designs, energy efficiency, and efficient management of high water flows. It translates to healthier aquatic life, sustainable processes and a more successful aquacultural venture.”

Nuvonic said the NVI’s endorsement process encompassed a rigorous evaluation comprising theoretical and practical assessments. Nuvonic had provided comprehensive validation results, technical data, and capacity tables. It culminated in a live field test of the UV systems at a fish farm to confirm that Nuvonic’s UV solutions consistently delivered their promised performance and biosecurity enhancements.
