Ottawa Cleantech firm BluMetric Environmental Inc. has announced two major new deals, following on from recent contracts totalling over $2 million.
The first contract, announced yesterday, is an environmental consulting services contract with Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Yukon, valued at approximately $3 million over three years.
Administered through the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan (FCSAP), BluMetric’s consultancy work will encompass storage tank leaks and spills, abandoned dump sites and landfills, remote northern communities, wharf sites, and any other active or abandoned federal sites in Canada’s far north.
“BluMetric provides adroit management of the complex geophysical and hydrogeological characteristics of this region,” said Nell van Walsum, President of BluMetric’s Professional Services Division. “The north and the necessary specialization required to work there play a significant part in BluMetric’s strategy for satisfying clients in a wide range of sectors, including mining, tourism, and municipal services.”
And this morning, BluMetric announced a $720,000 U.S. contract to provide six oil-water separators and related installation services to Grupo Unidos por el Canal (GUPC) and the Panama Canal Authority through the first half of fiscal 2015.
GUPC is a consortium of European and Panamanian construction and engineering companies responsible for building the Third Set of Locks, the main project of the Panama Canal Expansion Program, one of the world’s largest ongoing construction programs.
“BluMetric’s products and services continue to be key to this huge construction project,” said Dan Scroggins, President of the BluMetric Water Division. “This expansion of our services demonstrates that our technology and expertise stand out in the most demanding industrial environments.”
These projects follow news in July that BluMetric has remortgaged its 3108 Carp Road property in Ottawa, for gross proceeds totalling just over $1 million, “part of a broader plan to improve the company’s liquidity and capital structure,” said Ian Malone, CFO of BluMetric.
