ABOUT THE CLIENT

AQUARIUM IN BAHRAIN

Located within the Mall of Dilmunia, the largest cylindrical aquarium in Bahrain is found. The unique aquarium is over 17 meters tall and 7 meters wide, filled with over 700 cubic metres of saltwater and over 2500 tropical fish, rays, and sharks.

Implementing a project at such a large scale involved huge quality demands for the different Life Support System (LSS) components, processes, as well as applied technologies.

WHAT THE CLIENT NEEDED

SUSTAINABLE AND EFFICIENT WATER DISINFECTION

To properly protect the marine life in the aquarium, it was evident that proper disinfection protocols were required. To accommodate these needs, UV disinfection was included as a vital part of the entire installation, to keep organisms such as viruses, bacteria, and unicellular algae under full control.

Furthermore, the project involved a large emphasis on improving operational efficiency and sustainability, which was a perfect match for UV technology.

THE SOLUTION

DURABLE POLYPROPYLENE UV SYSTEMS

Implementing thorough water treatment management protocols was a must, to create excellent conditions for all 85 different aquatic species to thrive under full control.

In cooperation with ELSS Group, 2x MR4-350PP UV systems were installed to ensure microorganism control, enabling excellent water treatment conditions.

The two installed UV systems are made from Polypropylene (PP) material, known for its excellent durability and corrosion-resistant qualities. The material has proven to be superior when dealing with corrosive saltwater, where 700 cubic metres liters of aquarium water needed to consistently remain disinfected.

Furthermore, a key reason why UV systems were chosen was the low maintenance requirements, removing labor-intensive and complicated processes, thus complying with the needs of improving operational efficiency in a sustainable manner.

“The UV Sterilisers procured from ULTRAAQUA are an essential component of the Bahrain Aquarium’s Life Support System, which maintains a stable aquatic habitat for the thousands of tropical fish, rays and sharks within the aquarium. ULTRAAQUA’s PP UV systems are well suited to saltwater aquarium applications, with reliable performance, no metallic materials coming in contact with the saltwater and being easy to operate and maintain.”
