H2O Innovation lands three water/wastewater contracts

H2O Innovation Inc announced on 14 January 2014 recent contracts totalling Can$ 6.5 million (UA$ 5.93 million) in Western Canada’s energy sector.

These new jobs bring the company’s order backlog for water treatment projects to Can$ 17.9 million (US$ 16.34 million) as of 13 January 2014.

Two of the awards are major contracts from a leading independent energy company engaged in the exploration, development and production of natural gas and oil in North America. These two contracts will see H2O Innovation design, build and commission a potable water treatment package as well as a wastewater treatment package for a 2,300-person workers camp in Northern Alberta.

The potable water plant, which includes provision of raw water pumping, filtration using cartridge filters, ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis, as well as chlorination prior to storage in an above-ground bolted steel potable water storage tank, will produce 575 m³/d of fully treated potable water.

To complement the potable water, H2O Innovation will supply a membrane bioreactor wastewater treatment plant having a capacity of 517.5 m³/d and consisting of raw wastewater pumping, anoxic and aerobic tanks, membrane tanks, disinfection by ultraviolet light and discharge to an engineered disposal field.

“The award of these contracts from a major player in the oil & gas industry is a pledge of confidence because it is the second mandate given to us by this client just after the delivery of two similar units last fall,” said Frédéric Dugré, president and CEO of H2O Innovation.

A third contract has been awarded by an international company operating in Alberta specializing in in-situ oil sands production. This contract will see H2O Innovation design, build and commission a membrane-based water treatment package located within the owners’ central processing facility to treat well water for domestic use in the administration and maintenance buildings, laboratories and garage wash bay, as well as supplying the safety showers and eye-wash stations.
