H2O Innovation wins water treatment contracts worth C$8.9mn

Water authorities in Texas, Oregon and Virginia have selected H2O Innovation to design, manufacture and commission ultrafiltration (UF) systems to service municipal clients. The systems will be designed using the FiberFlex skid, an open platform technology developed by H2O Innovation allowing interchangeability between different brands of UF membrane modules.

H2O Innovation will design, manufacture and commission a UF membrane system with five trains to treat water from Lake Texoma in Texas and produce 11.3 MGD (42 775 m3/day) of potable water. This system will help the City of Sherman upgrade an ageing treatment system and more efficiently treat the city’s water.

The Canadian company will also design, manufacture and commission a water treatment system for the City of Lebanon in Oregon. “This project represents an important opportunity to introduce, in the State of Oregon, the company’s membrane filtration knowledge and its unique FiberFlex skid,” said Frédéric Dugré, president and CEO of H2O Innovation. Once completed, this system will treat water from the South Santiam River in order to produce 4.5 MGD (17 034 m3/day) of potable water.

Under the third contract, Virginia’s Loudoun County has selected H2O Innovation to design, manufacture and commission a UF system for the new communities of Raspberry Falls and Selma Estates. The 2-train UF system will produce 0.45 MGD (1703 m3/day) of potable water.
