H2O Innovation subsidiary secures supply contracts worth $1.8M
QUEBEC CITY, QUE-H2O Innovation (2000) has signed two contracts with a combined value of $1.8 million (Cdn) for the supply of drinking water treatment plants in communities in California and Florida. The contracts were secured by the Quebec firm's U.S. subsidiary, Membrane Systems Inc (MSI), which will act as subcontractor to the general contractor for each project. The system for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, in Tracy, will consist of two low-pressure reverse osmosis trains using 108 membrane elements designed to treat groundwater with high levels of total dissolved solids and chlorides. It will produce drinking water at the flow rate of 800,640 U.S. gallons (3,030 cubic metres) per day. MSI will be responsible for the reverse osmosis system design, procurement and fabrication, including the instrumentation and controls. The reverse osmosis system to be supplied by MSI for the village of Wellington, Florida project will supplement the community's existing system to augment drinking water treatment capacity. Using 365 brackish water membrane elements, the system will supply drinking water to Wellington's 55,000 residents, producing 1.8 million U.S. gallons (6,813 cubic metres) per day.
