De.mem signs A$1.7mn service contract with Rio Tinto

De.mem, the Australian-Singaporean water and wastewater treatment company, has signed a 3-year service contract with mining company Rio Tinto worth approximately A$1.7 million in revenues.

Under the agreement, De.mem will operate and maintain Rio Tinto’s water treatment facilities at the Amrun bauxite mine in Northern Queensland.

The agreement is an extension of an existing arrangement based on revolving, short term purchase orders. De.mem has been operating the water treatment facilities since 2016.

There is additional revenue potential for De.mem to sell further products including the company's specialty chemicals.

De.mem CEO Andreas Kroell said: “This important 3-year service contract is a recognition of the quality of our work and the skills and dedication of our operations team. It underlines our well-established customer base in the mining and resources sector, and our strong, recurring service business.”
