Can$ 4.7 million new orders for H2O Innovation
A 1.1 MGD (4,200 m³/d) ultrafiltration (UF) drinking water system for a community in British Columbia, Canada, is one of new contracts worth Can$ 4.7 million (US$ 4.6 million) announced on 6 June 2013 by H2O Innovation Inc.These new contracts bring H2O Innovation's order backlog for water treatment projects to Can$ 17.4 million (US$ 17.0 million) as of 5 June 2013. The company has continued to expand its systems sales network by adding a new sales manager in British Columbia.
An institutional end-user in California has also selected H2O Innovation for the design, fabrication, assembly and delivery of an integrated membrane filtration system combining UF and reverse osmosis (RO) units.
The proposed system will consist of a 0.5 MGD (1,900 m³/d) UF unit and a 0.7 MGD (2,650 m³/d) RO unit, which will treat concentrate from an electrodialysis reversal (EDR) system to minimize waste volume for this zero‑liquid‑discharge (ZLD) facility. Working closely with the contractor the option was developed and proposed as value-engineered option to the client.
A nanofiltration (NF) system will be delivered for Everglades City in Florida to treat brackish water to produce 0.55 MGD (2,080 m³/d) of drinking water.
Additionally, H20 Innovation will supply a 2‑train RO system for an industrial water reclamation project in Iowa. This system has an overall capacity of 0.35 MGD (1,325 m³/d). Lastly, the company will also deliver a 2‑train NF system for the production of drinking water in Québec.
