FAA Supplemental Type Certificates have been released for the IWG-A4 Water Treatment Unit to be installed on Dassault's Falcon 2000 and Falcon 900 family of aircraft, David C. Fox, IWG president and CEO announced today.
"These STC's open a substantial Dassault Falcon retrofit market for IWG equipment – a retrofit fleet of some 700 untapped aircraft," said Fox. "Together With Dassault Falcon, we are pleased to be able to offer the benefits of on-board water treatment to these existing, as well as new, aircraft."
IWG equipment was previously available on new Dassault Falcon aircraft. The STC's now make retrofit an easy and simple option for Falcon 2000 and Falcon 900 Dassault Falcon owner/operators. The new STC is available first to US operators through Dassault's factory-owned and Authorized Service Center network. EASA approval is expected as early as July or August 2009, which will allow retrofit of the IWG water treatment equipment worldwide.
The IWG-A4 Water Treatment Unit is IWG's most advanced product, designed to assure aircraft water safety and quality for passengers and crew – a growing concern especially on aircraft that can be dispatched to any location in the world at a moment's notice.
International Water-Guard is a Canadian aerospace company focusing on aircraft potable water treatment and full water system solutions. IWG has expertise in all aspects of water treatment, and has the products and know-how to provide high quality water for passengers and crew, and light-weight, space saving solutions for the aircraft operator.
