OTTAWA, Sept. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Seprotech Systems Inc., a Canadian Environmental Technology Company and manufacturer of water and wastewater treatment systems, is pleased to announce that the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) has increased the value of the Repair and Overhaul Services Contract for water purification systems by $1.5M in the current fiscal year.
"Seprotech began work on the DND contract in June of this year and the increase in the Standing Offer Agreement underscores both the urgent need for these services and the confidence DND places in the quality of Seprotech's work in executing this contract to meet tight military deadlines," said Martin J. Hauschild, President & CEO of Seprotech.
"This contract is a key element in Seprotech's strategy of generating 50% of revenues from Operations and Maintenance (O&M) within two years. The utility and services side of our business will provide a stable and consistent revenue base while water & wastewater treatment equipment sales will provide a platform for growth," concluded Mr. Hauschild.
The contract amendment is in addition to the Standing Offer announced on the 15th of January 2009 valued at up to $6M over a five-year period. The standing offer process provides the Canadian Forces with immediate response and support to their equipment requirements. Seprotech has been awarded similar Standing Offers from DND in the past including the equipment in this Standing Offer.
Seprotech is a provider of pre-engineered water and wastewater treatment plants to the land development, resource sector and military market place, including CrystalBlue(TM) membrane-based water recycling systems and the ROTORDISK(R) wastewater treatment systems.
