Don’t just take our word for it, though. In cooperation with Statens Serum Institut (National Danish Central Laboratory), it has been proven by documented studies that our technology eliminates Legionella to below the limit of detection. Together, we can contribute to saving lives by reducing the number of cases of Legionnaires´ disease, an illness that most often affects the elderly and those with compromised immune systems, and is considered to be deadly for around 10% of people who contract it.

Private Sector Solutions

Businesses in the private sector are obliged under national and European law to provide safe water and are liable for harm caused to consumers where they have failed to maintain the correct water safety standards. As such, it’s vital that all businesses in the public sector are pro-active when it comes to preventing bacteria build up in their place of work. Danish Clean Water provides sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective solutions for businesses in the private sector including sports venues, the housing association, agriculture farms, and the industrial sector.

Sports Venues

Protect athletes, employees, and the environment against toxic chemicals in your piping systems.

Industry

Remove biofilm and enjoy a higher efficiency rate and lower energy consumption.

Agriculture

Improve animal wellbeing, reduce self-contamination, and increase your income.

Housing Association

Protect families and provide residents with clean, safe, water.

Sports Venues

Swimming halls and sports facilities are particularly susceptible to outbreaks of Legionella as water temperatures here tend to be between 20-40 °C, the preferred temperature for bacteria growth. As these facilities are used by multiple people daily, it’s vitally important that the water is managed effectively to fight off harmful bacteria and preventative water quality assurance is an absolute must.
Danish Clean Water’s disinfection system, can help protect athletes, employees, and the environment against toxic chemicals by implementing our NEUTHOX® product into the water piping systems of sports venues. After doing so, the successful reduction of Legionella in the water can be accurately measured after just a few weeks.

Industry

When it comes to the industrial sector, biofilm found in cooling towers causes a two-fold problem. Not only is biofilm the breeding ground for germs and bacteria, but it also reduces the cooling performance and effects efficiency rates on-site. Therefore both direct and indirect cooling requires bacteriological control. Biofilm found in heat exchangers has its own problems. The bacterial breeding ground causes the reduction of heat transfer which results in increased power consumption.

With our DCW systems, biofilm is removed within a few weeks and without any business interruptions. In addition to that, it is a proven fact that existing biofilm is not only removed, but that continuous application of our NEUTHOX® disinfecting solution prevents biofilm from ever emerging.

DCW’s technological solutions have a wide range of benefits for the industrial sector:

  • Permanent removal of biofilm in cooling towers and industrial heat exchangers will lead to a higher efficiency rate and lower energy consumption
  • Due to the improved bacteriological control of the applied production water, the condensing temperature in the cooling circuit can be lowered, which results in improved performance (Coefficient of Performance, COP)

Agriculture

Self-contamination in drinking water is a common known problem within agriculture. Animals are continuously exposed to infections which have a negative impact on well-being, growth, and productivity. Typically this requires significant use of antibiotics, for example in the cattle fattening business and animal husbandry, which results in costly treatments and negative impacts on the environment. In addition, organic farming is subject to various strict regulations, which limit the possibilities to fight diseases amongst the animals and adds extra pressure when it comes to ensuring animal health.

Danish Clean Water’s technological solutions allow the agricultural industry to successfully and efficiently fight off germs and bacteria. Our solutions are greatly contributing to animal welfare and animal housing hygiene, lowering the mortality rate, and are substantially reducing the use of antibiotics. In short, DCW’s solutions are increasing the income of farmers across the country.

Agricultural benefits of using DCW’s solutions:

  • Reduce the consequences of self-contamination
  • Reduce the purchasing of antibiotics
  • Improve overall animal health and wellbeing
  • Increase income (due to healthier animals and lower medicinal costs)

Housing Association

In multi-family homes, inhabitants will get their drinking water and hot water from the same water supply system. Property owners, administrators, and landlords are obliged to grant tenants access to safe water. Residential buildings and apartment buildings have extensive piping systems with considerable pipe lengths. The water must be hygienically safe throughout the whole system at any time and it must fulfil the legal requirements. Vacant apartments and holiday periods can potentially represent additional risks.

Therefore, it is extremely important to destroy the breeding ground for Legionella which thrive in biofilm in hot water tanks and water pipes. Until now, it was difficult to fight Legionella and other germs and bacteria found in biofilm and therefore there is a potential risk that many residents are infected from the same source.

Hotels

The very first outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in 1976, which infected 130 people and killed 40, occurred in a hotel in Philadelphia. To this day, hotels and resorts remain the number one industry for outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease.  Records show that such outbreaks have a huge impact on a hotel’s reputation and can lead to considerable financial damage that can be hard to recover from.

DCW’s technology is a popular preventative measure used by hotels to ensure guests have access to safe and clean water. Not only do our Generator Systems and NEUTHOX® products protect hotel guests from waterborne diseases including Legionella, but DCW’s solutions are also cost-effective. Whether you’re an independent hotel with a small property and looking to safely manage one water system, or you’re a chain hotel with multiple water systems spread across the globe, DCW can help ensure your hotel meets the legal requirements for consistently providing hygienically safe water to guests.

Public Sector Solutions

Like the private sector, public institutions are also obliged under the law to provide safe water and must be pro-active when it comes to preventing bacteria build up in their place of work. A disinfection system that successfully eliminates germs and bacteria is, therefore, an extremely sensible preventive measure. Danish Clean Water provides sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective solutions for public buildings such as hospitals, nursing homes, schools, daycare centres, and municipal and state buildings. Fighting Legionella, bacteria, and germs in the water is crucial for human health, especially in public buildings where many people draw drinking and shower water from the same source.

Hospitals

Keep the vulnerable protected in hospitals by supplying clean water.

Nursing Homes

Remove biofilm and protect those with weakend immune systems.

Schools

Keep children safe and ensure old water systems are cleared of biofilm. 

Hospitals

In hospitals and the healthcare industry, the risk of developing Legionnaires’ disease is particularly high as hospital patients are often already operating on a weakened immune system. On top of this, hospital water systems cover a vast expanse of territory, which means Legionella can proliferate rapidly and spread across a wide area. If left uncontrolled, a Legionella-infected hospital water system will cause lethal damage and bring with it great financial disruption.

Reducing bacteria growth, controlling infection rates, and careful regulation of a building’s water supply should be high on the priority list of facility management companies and contractors working in the healthcare industry. Danish Clean Water’s solutions are in line with national guidelines for the prevention of Legionellosis in healthcare premises and offer a stress-free solution to the safe management of hospital water systems.

Nursing Homes

Much like in hospitals, the risk of developing Legionnaires’ disease in a nursing home is particularly high because once again care home residents fall into a category of vulnerable people who suffer from a weakened immune system. The chances of such a resident recovering from Legionnaires’ disease are slim, and the ramifications on the nursing home should the disease spread are huge. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 1 in 4 people who get the Legionella infection from facilities such as nursing homes and hospitals will likely die.

Due to the high-risk nature of nursing homes, duty managers in the care home sector are urged to take extra precautions in the battle against Legionella. Here at DCW, we offer the perfect preventative solution. Without the use of environmentally harmful chemicals, our DCW units ensure the fast and reliable removal of biofilm and with it, the destruction of the breeding ground for Legionella in nursing homes.

Schools

While Legionnaires’ disease is uncommon in younger people and very rarely affects those under the age of 20 (research shows the elderly, those with underlying health conditions, and those who are heavy drinkers are more susceptible to the disease), it’s still mandatory for schools to manage their water systems safely and reliably.

Fixtures such as drinking fountains, showers, and spa baths are all commonly found in schools and all give rise to biofilm breeding grounds and the growth of Legionella in such areas must be prevented. What’s more, most school water systems are dated and archaic, a factor that poses an additional risk and increases the likelihood of bacterial growth.

With our DCW systems, biofilm in school water pipes can be removed within a few weeks and without any disruption to studies. In addition to that, it is a proven fact that existing biofilm is not only removed, but that continuous application of our NEUTHOX® disinfecting solution prevents biofilm from ever emerging.
