BURNABY, BC: IWG Technologies Inc has signed an agreement with Embraer SA of Brazil for the optional installation of the IWG-A4 ultraviolet water treatment unit on Embraer Legacy 600 and Legacy 650 aircraft. The first installation will be of an IWG-A4 water treatment unit on Embraer’s demonstrator Legacy 650 aircraft in San Jose dos Campos, Brazil.

“This is an important milestone for both IWG and Embraer,” said David Fox, IWG’s president and CEO. “For us, this is the beginning of a formal relationship with a very important and growing airframe manufacturer.  For Embraer, this marks the introduction of active ultraviolet water treatment as a product option for their business jets. This will allow passengers and crew to benefit from a unique water-borne contamination protection system, wherever they are in the world.” The installation has been designed by International Water-Guard, and their Brazilian partners Avionics Services.
