The projects both include the supply of ultrafiltration (UF) technology.

The largest of the two projects consists of a seven-train UF system for the City of Grants Pass, in Oregon. This system is designed for a capacity of 22.5 MGD (85,200 m3/day) to provide drinking water for the community. H2O Innovation submitted a proposal with a higher initial capital cost but with a significantly greater long-term value to the City’s ratepayers and was therefore recommended as the successful bidder over two other proposers. The project will start with an engineering phase, and the fabrication of equipment is expected to be completed in 2024.

The second project involves a UF-RO system expansion for the City of Sherman in Texas, to bring the total capacity of the system to 14.0 MGD (53,000 m3/day). The scope for this project is to add two additional UF trains to the existing five trains that H2O Innovation provided in 2018, as well as an additional RO train to expand the two trains provided in 2019. The expansion is a fast-tracked upgrade that is expected to be completed within the next 12 months.

“We can see that the market is still rich in opportunities for water treatment systems, both for the municipal and industrial sectors,” said Frédéric Dugré, president and CEO of H2O Innovation. “Our new fiscal year is off to a promising start, and this allows us to look forward to the next few years with confidence.”
