QUEBEC CITY, Dec. 19, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: HEO) - H2O Innovation Inc. ("H2O Innovation" or the "Company") announces today that it was recently
awarded $3.2 million in new contracts. These new contracts bring the
Company's order backlog for water treatment projects to $13.4 million
as of December 18, 2013.
Amongst the contracts announced today, two of them are strategic for the
Company, since the systems will be designed for wastewater reclamation
applications by membrane filtration technology, an important growing segment in the water treatment industry.
One of these projects will allow H2O Innovation to make a significant breakthrough in the State of Texas by
assuming the design, assembly and commissioning of a new reverse
osmosis system for advanced processing of membrane bioreactor (MBR)
effluent which is treating municipal wastewater. Once the installation
is completed, the reverse osmosis system will have a capacity of 4.2
MGD at 85% recovery and will supplement other water sources to fill
Lake Fort Phantom Hill. This system will be located in Hamby, Texas,
which is close proximity to the City of Abilene and will become the
largest advanced water treatment system for treating municipal
wastewater effluent in the state of Texas.
Since the State of Texas voted a constitutional amendment to jump-start
a financing program of $2 billion for state water projects, it becomes
a growing and strategic territory, rich in opportunities for H2O Innovation. This contract fits perfectly with the development and
business plan of the Company for the next years. It will bring H2O Innovation a great visibility in the field of wastewater reclamation,
which becomes increasingly significant from an environmental
The second project offers a major technological opportunity for H2O Innovation in the field of wastewater treatment. West Basin Municipal
Water District in Carson, California awarded a contract to H2O Innovation for the design, assembly and commissioning of a portable
microfiltration/ultrafiltration (MF/UF) system capable of producing 1.0
MGD of net filtrate flow using pressurized hollow fiber membranes
modules, a first of its kind in California. Once operational, this
system will have a recovery of at least 95%. H2O Innovation is proud to have been selected for this project and to have
the opportunity to supply this state-of-the-art MF/UF plant.
"This project is part of the Municipality of West Basin' strategy to
meet its needs in recycling wastewater on its broad territory. Our
expertise acquired by the implementation of major water and wastewater
projects integrated in containerized mobile units for the mining and
oil industries, gives us the know -how to develop a customized solution
to meet water treatment needs via a decentralized structure. We
sincerely believe that this decentralized water treatment approach by
containerized mobile units may respond to similar problems that many
municipalities are facing, since it minimizes infrastructure work,
restoration of roads as well as deploys an efficient water treatment
solution in a short time frame", says Frédéric Dugré , President and CEO of H2O Innovation.
