H2O Innovation Inc. has landed two new wastewater projects in the United States, bringing the Montreal-based company’s sales backlog to $58.9 million.
"Fiscal year 2017 symbolizes, for H2O Innovation, the year where we have been awarded the most wastewater treatment projects. More than 15% of the backlog represents wastewater projects, compared to 1% in 2016 and 2% in 2015. This is a significant milestone in our strategic diversification of the project group. It's opening a world of opportunities that we didn't tap into in previous years", said Frédéric Dugré, president and CEO at H2O Innovation.
The first contract is in California and it consists of a wastewater treatment system using the Bio-Wheel technology, an integrated fixed-film activated sludge (IFAS) process. The system will treat an average flow of 3.2 million gallons per day (12,000 m3/day) of the undisclosed city's wastewater. This is the largest treatment project using the Bio-Wheel technology that has been awarded to H2) Innovation to date.
Located in New Jersey, the second project awarded involves the retrofit of a conventional wastewater treatment system to a two-train membrane bioreactor (MBR) system. H2) Innovation will upgrade the system's capacity while maintaining the same footprint and increasing the effluent's quality. The system will treat 80,000 gallons per day (nearly 303 m3/day) of wastewater.
