H2O Innovation awarded new water treatment contracts worth $8.9 million and its sales backlog reaches $44.3 million

H2O Innovation was recently awarded three new contracts in an aggregate amount of $8.9 million for the design of potable water treatment systems.

The contracts from three different water authorities include the design, manufacture and commissioning of ultrafiltration (UF) systems to service municipal clients.

These systems, located in Oregon, Texas and Virginia, will each be designed using the FiberFlex  skid, an open platform technology developed by H2O Innovation allowing interchangeability between different brands of UF membrane modules.

These new contracts bring the sales backlog to a high level of $44.3 million as at November 5, 2015, excluding the sales backlog from its Specialty Products and Services business lines (PWT, Piedmont and H2O Innovation Maple), the company said.

The first contract will allow H2O Innovation to expand its presence in Texas. The City of Sherman selected the Company for the design, manufacture and commissioning of a UF membrane system of five trains to treat water from Lake Texoma and produce 11.3 MGD (42,775 m3/day) of potable water.  This system will help the City of Sherman upgrade an aging treatment system and more efficiently treat the city’s water.

A second contract is for the design, manufacture and commissioning of a water treatment system for the City of Lebanon. This project, according to company officials, represents an important opportunity to introduce, in the State of Oregon, the Company’s membrane filtration knowledge and its unique FiberFlex. Once completed, this system will be treating water from the South Santiam River in order to produce 4.5 MGD (17,034 m3/day) of potable water.

The third contract was awarded by Loudoun County in the Commonwealth of Virginia to design, manufacture and commission a UF system for the communities of Raspberry Falls and Selma Estates. These new communities will be serviced by a 2-train UF system that will produce 0.45 MGD (1,703 m3/day) of potable water.
