H2O Innovation, a water, wastewater and water reuse treatment company, has been awarded the operations and maintenance (O&M) contract for the Town of Warren, Rhode Island with a total value of C$5 million (US$4 million), bringing the company’s O&M sales backlog to C$71.3 million (US$57.9 million).
The new contract, which will officially commence coming July, includes the supply of operation and maintenance services for a 2MGD wastewater treatment facility and pumping stations for a five-year period, and adds six new employees to the O&M team.
Gregory Madden, CSO of H2O Innovation, commented: “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 start-up team to smoothly transition operations to H2O Innovation.”
