CALGARY, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Pure Technologies Ltd. ("Pure" or the
"Company") (TSX: PUR) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned
subsidiary, Pure Technologies U.S. Inc. ("Pure U.S."), has been awarded
a significant engineering contract by the Howard County (Maryland)
Bureau of Public Works. For more than 10 years, Pure has been working
with this customer on projects related to the inspection and management
of large-diameter concrete water pipes. The new work involves condition
assessment, renewal, and management strategies for small-diameter,
metallic water pipelines (principally ductile iron between 6 and 16
inches in diameter) within the project area. The new work, utilizing an
array of assessment technologies and engineering services, is expected
to commence in late 2013 and include revenues of up to USD$1.7 million
over a period of approximately 18 to 24 months.
"This announcement is significant for Pure in a number of ways," said
Mark Holley, president of Pure U.S. "It confirms the strong growth
potential for the Company using asset management strategies for
small-diameter metallic pipelines through our Assess and Address™
strategy. This approach involves identifying localized deterioration
and selectively repairing pipe sections only when necessary through our
technology and engineering solutions. Additionally, this new work
strongly supports the market trend by proactive utilities such as
Howard County that opt for a cost effective approach to pipeline
management and rehabilitation. Finally, this award strengthens our
reputation as a trusted partner to help manage other pipe types that
make up the majority of a water distribution system."
