Water treatment company signs deals with energy, electronics firms
MONTREAL—Ovivo Inc. has won two water treatment contracts worth more than $21 million.
The Montreal-based wastewater firm announced May 12 it will provide systems to an American energy company as well as a Chinese electronics firm.
“We are delighted to be selected to execute these large orders in two key geographical markets for Ovivo,” Marc Barbeau, the company’s president and CEO, said. “Our advanced technological water treatment solutions and our international platform provide us with clear competitive advantages to support our global clients with their projects across the world.”
Under the U.S. contract, Ovivo will supply two intake screening plants for a pumping station on the U.S.’s east coast. The company will also build a fish return system that allows trapped fish to be collected and returned to the water. Ovivo expects to complete the work before mid-2018.
Meanwhile, the company will build an ultrapure water system for an unnamed Chinese electronics company that builds liquid-crystal displays (LCDs). The Quebec firm expects to deliver that system by the end of next year.
