Ovivo Awarded Two Municipal Contracts

The combined value of the contracts is $13 million

Ovivo municipal contracts Eimco Water Technologies Snapfinger

Ovivo Inc. has been awarded two contracts in the U.S. municipal market, for a combined value of approximately $13 million Canadian.

The first contract is for the supply of seven 160-ft-diameter clarifiers in duplex stainless steel to Miami-Dade County, Fla. Due to extremely high chloride concentrations in the wastewater, a special corrosion-resistant material was required for this pure oxygen application. Through its heritage brand Eimco Water Technologies, Ovivo created value for the county by utilizing its Collection Manifold Device (CMD), which allowed installation of the new clarifiers without structural changes to the existing tanks, thus reducing project cost and shortening installation time. The equipment is scheduled to be progressively delivered between March and September 2016.

The second contract is for the new Snapfinger wastewater treatment plant, located in DeKalb County, Ga., for which Ovivo will supply equipment and control systems related to the Carrousel process. The Snapfinger facility will be the largest plant of its kind in the world, serving about a half million residents and discharging water meeting strict discharge criteria. The equipment is scheduled to be progressively delivered between 2017 and 2019. Ovivo has provided the Carrousel process for almost 40 years and has kept the technology relevant through employee-led innovation during that time.

“We are delighted to have been selected by renowned U.S. utilities for these large infrastructure projects,” said Marc Barbeau, Ovivo president and CEO. “We are very well positioned in the Municipal North America segment, an expanding market where we can leverage our expertise, our proprietary technologies and our extensive commercial platform."
