OQUEBEC CITY, Feb. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — H2O Innovation Inc. (“H2O Innovation” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that its Water Technologies & Services (WTS) business line has recently been awarded five new water and wastewater treatment projects, including four industrial projects. These new contracts, with a total value of $5.5 M, increase the WTS backlog to $54.8 M.
The first recent award is with a data center management customer that the Corporation is currently engaged with on existing projects. This repeat customer is located in the Northwest region of the US. The project includes a 2.0 MGD (7,500 m3/day) treatment system with two primary ultrafiltration (UF) trains and one secondary UF train for the treatment of backwash wastewater, which will allow for an exceptionally high recovery of greater than 98%. This new equipment is in line with the customer’s objective to reduce its water footprint and thus become more water positive (Source: IDA). This project is expected to be completed over the next 12 months.
H2O Innovation also won three other industrial projects in the States of Iowa and Kentucky. The Corporation will provide two reverse osmosis (RO) systems and one that uses greensand filter tanks. Respectively, these systems will treat the water used in a sugar separation process at an ethanol plant, treat the process water from a metal extraction procedure for boiler feed water use, and remove the iron fouling from cooling towers’ feeding water.
Finally, the Corporation was selected to provide a temporary water treatment system to an Indigenous community in Canada for which boil water advisories were issued. H2O Innovation deployed one of its assets, a containerized system with a capacity of 100 GPM (545 m3/day), to supply the community with drinking water. “As a water treatment company, it is crucial to address the water issues of our Indigenous communities and provide them peace of mind in terms of accessibility to clean drinking water. Our membrane filtration technologies are also greener for the environment than conventional technologies and do not require a large quantity of chemicals. H2O Innovation is proud to have completed more than a dozen water and wastewater plants for Indigenous communities across Canada that are still in service today,” stated Frédéric Dugré, President and Chief Executive Officer of H2O Innovation.
