OTTAWA, Aug. 28, 2015 /CNW/ - BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX-V: BLM), a leading Canadian cleantech company, announced today that it has been awarded two sizeable contracts:
Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC, through Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) – C$1.7 million
- to assess various sites in the High Arctic and develop remedial plans to protect and improve the environment. The project work will be initiated as soon as possible, moving swiftly to take advantage of the short summer field work season. The remedial plans will be developed following the field program. The BluMetric team has extensive experience completing similar projects in both remote locations and the Canadian Arctic; and
Department of National Defense (DND) – C$1.75 million
- a one-year extension to BluMetric's standing-offer Department of National Defense (DND) contract to provide repair and service support for the Royal Canadian Navy's Shipboard Reverse Osmosis Desalination (SROD) systems. The Navy contract (previously announced 26 November, 2012) was originally for $6.9 million for a three-year period with two possible one-year extensions. This first extension increases the total contract value to more than $8.6 million. BluMetric's repair, maintenance, and overhaul program for DND's SRODs has amply demonstrated the Company's service and technology prowess.
