H2O Innovation picks up contract trio to boost order book

Canada-based H2O Innovation has won two new contracts in Canada and one new deal in the US.

According to H2O Innovation the new contracts bring the company’s order book to a record high of CAD 50.8 million (US$ 35.6 million) excluding the sales backlog from its specialty products and services business line, PWT, Piedmont and H2O Innovation Maple.

The wins were for:

the design, manufacture and commissioning of a two stage ultrafiltration (UF) system with a total of five trains to treat water from the Englishman River from the Englishman River Water Service;

the pre-selection for supply of a new six trains UF system to treat tertiary effluent from the Valencia Water Reclamation Plant of the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County; and

the design, manufacture and commissioning of a wastewater treatment system for the national historic site of Lower Fort Garry in Manitoba.

The Englishman project will produce potable water at 16,000 m³/d for the City of Parksville, in British Columbia. The system will be expandable to 48,000 m³/d to meet Parksville’s current and future demands. This system includes H2O Innovation’s FiberFlex skid – an open platform technology that enables the user to interchange between several types of UF module.

The recently-acquired Clearlogx monitoring technology will also be part of the system in order to log and automatically optimize coagulant dose to maximize the life of the membrane and reduce plant operating expenses.

The Valencia system too will be designed with the FiberFlex skid and will produce water for reuse in agricultural applications at up to 38,989 m³/d.

The Manitoba system will use the biological Bio-Wheel process to treat municipal wastewater and provide nutrient removal. The company said the system designed for Lower Fort Garry was “very sturdy, reliable, simple to operate and will have low energy consumption requirements.” It will treat wastewater at 30 to 60 m³/d.

President and chief executive officer of H2O Innovation, Frédéric Dugré, said: “We are especially pleased by the rapid integration of the Clearlogx technology to our offer and the positive response generated by our customers only a few weeks after its introduction.” He said the interest in Clearlogx could boost the company’s project business line as well as on its PWT specialty products line, “which will ensure long-term supply of coagulants.”
