H2O Innovation wins $400K drinking water system supply contract

QUEBEC CITY, QUE-H2O Innovation (2000) has won a contract for the second phase of a project in which nanofiltration will be used to produce high-quality drinking water from surface water sources for the Naskapi Nation of Kawawachikamach (NNK). The contract is valued at more than $400,000. H2O's NanH2OFiltration membrane filtration system was selected for this project last fall, after a rigorous analysis by NNK and with financing from the federal Department of Indian and Northern Affairs. The first phase, completed in February, involved installation of the pretreatment equipment. This summer, H2O will deliver a unit of nanofiltration membranes and will integrate all data acquisition stations using H2O e-solution, its remote control and data acquisition system. The company specializes in membrane filtration treatment systems that are particularly well suited for use in cold water conditions and in remote areas, and is pursuing further opportunities with First Nations communities. To this end, H2O has just opened an office in Winnipeg, a move it believes will raise its profile in Manitoba, particularly among First Nations. More information is available from H2O president and CEO Guy Goulet, 450/669-3144, ext 203, E-mail, or Frédéric Dugré, executive vice-president, 418/688-0170, ext 22, E-mail
