H2O Innovation Signs a New Contract Worth $5.0 M
All amounts in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.
QUEBEC CITY, June 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (TSXV: HEO) – H2O Innovation Inc. (“H2O Innovation” or the “Corporation”) is proud to announce it has recently been awarded the Operations and Maintenance (“O&M”) contract for the Town of Warren, Rhode Island with a total value of $5.0 M, bringing the Corporation’s O&M sales backlog to $71.3 M. This award follows a competitive RFP process.
The new contract includes the supply of operation and maintenance services for a 2 MGD (7,571 m3/day) wastewater treatment facility and pumping stations for a 5-year period and adds 6 new employees to the O&M team. The contract, which officially begins on July 1st, 2021, is remarkable because in 1980 Warren became only the second city in the United States to privatize their operations.
“This contract holds not only historical significance for the contract operations industry, but also strategic significance for H2O Innovation in that it continues to build our O&M presence in the Northeast US where we have a strong customer base. Our team knows the treatment plant and surrounding area well, and we are excited to have won the contract. In the coming weeks, we will leverage the knowledge and expertise of our existing staff and startup team to smoothly transition operations to H2O Innovation”, stated Gregory Madden, Chief Strategy Officer of H2O Innovation.
