Oct. 15, 2015 -- Ovivo Inc., a global company dedicated to water and wastewater treatment, recently announced that it has been awarded two major contracts in the U.S. municipal market for a combined value of approximately CA$13 million ($10 million).
The first contract is for the supply of seven 160-foot-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 (CMDTM), 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 highly reliable Carrousel process for almost 40 years and has always kept the technology relevant through employee-led innovation during that time.
