QUÉBEC, June 6, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: HEO) - H(2)OInnovation Inc.
("H(2)O Innovation" or the "Company") announces today that it was recently
awarded $4.7 million in new contracts. These new contracts bring
H(2)OInnovation's order backlog for water treatment projects to $17.4
million as of June 5, 2013. The Company continue to expand its systems sales
network by adding a new sales manager in British-Columbia.
Among the projects announced today, one of them will see H(2)O Innovation
design, assemble, deliver and commission a membrane filtration system,
combining the use of ultrafiltration (UF) and ultraviolet (UV), for a
community in British-Columbia. Once installed later this fall, the system will
produce 1.1 MGD (4,200m(3)/d) of drinking water from a surface water source.
H(2)OInnovation is proud to announce, for the first time in its history, the
hiring within its North American systems sales force of a sales manager based
in British Columbia. Reporting to H(2)OInnovation's sales hub located in
Calgary, Alberta, this sales manager will support the Company in developing
its sales network and promoting its products & services in Western Canada.
"In British Columbia notably there are many small and medium-sized
municipalities that still need improvement of their drinking water and
wastewater plants. The territory also abounds with multiple natural resources
related projects. The signature of this new contract in British Columbia and
the addition of a new sales expert to our Western Canadian team are two major
milestones that will definitely increase and improve our presence in this
high-growth market", commented Frédéric Dugré, President and Chief
Executive Officer of H(2)OInnovation.
An important institutional end-user in California has selected H(2)O
Innovation for the design, fabrication, assembly and delivery of an integrated
membrane filtration system combining UF and reverse osmosis (RO) units. The
proposed system will consist of a 0.5 MGD (1,900 m(3)/d) UF unit and a 0.7 MGD
(2,650m(3)/d) RO unit, which will treat concentrate from an electrodialysis
reversal (EDR) system to minimize waste volume for this zero-liquid-discharge
(ZLD) facility. Working closely with the contractor the option was developed
and proposed as value-engineered option to the client.
Another system will be delivered for Everglades City in Florida. This
nanofiltration system will treat brackish water to produce 0.55 MGD (2,080
m(3)/d) of drinking water.
Additionally, the Company will supply a 2-train RO system for an industrial
water reclamation project in Iowa. This system has an overall capacity of 0.35
MGD (1,325 m(3)/d). Lastly, the Company will also deliver a 2-train
nanofiltration system for the production of drinking water in Québec.
