H2O Innovation wins new contracts worth C$3.1mn

Under one of the contracts, H2O Innovation will design, build, test and commission a greensand and reverse osmosis system for a boiler feed water treatment package for an oil & gas producer in Northern Alberta.

The Canadian company will also deliver a two-skid reverse osmosis water treatment system to the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona to produce potable water. H2O Innovation will also provide operator training, installation assistance and performance testing services.

The Municipality of Sainte-Sophie in Quebec’s Laurentians region has contracted H2O Innovation to design and supply a nanofiltration membrane treatment system including pre-treatment. The system will produce drinking water by removing sulphides and dissolved solids from raw water taken from an underground source.

H2O Innovation will design and provide a skid-mounted drinking water production system, including green sand filters and reverse osmosis with calcite polishing, for Swan Lake First Nation in Manitoba. The company’s scope includes the supply of associated feed, recirculation and distribution pumps.

A H2O Innovation reverse osmosis system will also be delivered to the Yucaipa Valley Water District in California. This water reuse system will be used at the Water District’s wastewater treatment facility where it will reduce the salinity of the plant’s effluent, rendering it usable for irrigation and other non-potable uses.

“With these contracts, our bookings for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 total close to C$6 million. These successes demonstrate the validity of our long-standing focus on North American small to mid-size municipalities, where demand is strong and numerous sales opportunities exist. This efficiently counterbalances any weaknesses in demand from larger US municipalities, a market we are not actively targeting,” said Frédéric Dugré, president and CEO of H2O Innovation.
