H2O Innovation Announces Contracts Valued at $5.2 Million

$5.2 million in contracts will cover both U.S. and Canadian projects

H2O Innovation, Inc., announced the award of three new contracts in the U.S. and Canada. Total value of these contracts amounts to USD $5.2 million, bringing H2O sales backlog to $12.8 million.

New Hanover County Water Treatment Plant in North Carolina

New Hanover County, N.C., has selected Membrane Systems, Inc. (MSI), a wholly owned subsidiary of H2O Innovation, for the design and supply of four nanofiltration systems for the production of 5.5 million gal per day (mgd) of drinking water. MSI will provide two systems for the county of Pee Dee, S.C., (2.5 mgd) and two additional systems for the county of Castle Hayne, N.C. (3.0 mgd). MSI will design, assemble and ship two pre-built nanofiltration skids for each system. These systems will treat feed water received from multiple wells. The main treatment objectives are to reduce hardness, organic matters, iron and total dissolved solids.

Sea Water Treatment System in California

MSI has also been awarded a contract by CDM Constructors for the design and supply of a seawater system in California. This project will be highly visible due to several large seawater desalination projects under development in California. MSI's scope of work includes the supply of redundant 0.3-mgd trains for the production of drinking water from well water with salinity similar to seawater. The system includes efficient energy recovery devices for energy savings. The overall design had to be developed for optimum power consumption and to reach the high quality of concentrate discharge requirements.

South Beach Casino in Manitoba, Canada

The South Beach Casino (Manitoba, Canada) located in the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation Reserve, has selected H2O Innovation’s environmentally friendly technologies for the treatment of wastewater, as well as for the production of drinking water. The wastewater system will include four trickling filters to treat 74,000 gpd, while the drinking water systems—with a capacity of 144,000 gpd—will comprise 20 nanofiltration membrane elements.
