Vitens, Leading Dutch Utility, To Lease BioSentry Water Monitoring System from Company's Distributor
JMAR's BioSentry™ To Be Installed in Largest Water Company in The Netherlands
San Diego, CA | Posted on March 19th, 2007
JMAR Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:JMAR) announced today that it has received a purchase order from Interline Systems BV, JMAR's distributor who will install and lease the BioSentry™ Water Monitoring System to Vitens, a leading Dutch water utility that serves approximately 5.4 million consumers. The order comes just six weeks after the Company received an order from Yorkshire Water Services Ltd., a leading water utility in England. This test program marks the second water utility application for BioSentry in Europe. Vitens will lease the BioSentry System for an evaluation period of six months. Upon successful completion of the test period, it will have the option to purchase the unit for permanent installation.
The initial installation at Vitens will determine the effectiveness of the BioSentry in detecting pathogenic bacteria such as E-Coli and Legionella that can contaminate water distribution systems. BioSentry is part of a Vitens' initiative to develop a complete water security monitoring system inclusive of chemical and biological agents.
"BioSentry is a key component of water contamination monitoring as it's the only biological detection system that provides on-line, real-time results," said Wouter van Delft, project leader of Vitens. "Throughout Europe, waterborne pathogen events are becoming more and more prevalent and BioSentry can help to identify the presence and behavior of microorganisms in the water treatment and distribution processes."
"We are excited to receive another order from a major European water utility so quickly after receiving the initial purchase order from Yorkshire Water," stated Neil Beer, JMAR's President and CEO. JMAR has BioSentry Systems installed in the beverage quality assurance, water utility operations, cruise ship water monitoring, and homeland security markets. In addition, the system is being tested by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for homeland security applications.
