Ovivo Inc. ("Ovivo") has been awarded a large contract to design and supply containerised modular fresh water makers for an offshore oil and gas production platform located in the North Pacific Ocean. The contract value is over $9 million Canadian and includes a custom designed production plant, using reverse osmosis membrane process. The equipment is scheduled for delivery in 2016.
The contract includes Ovivo's fresh water maker, through its heritage brand Caird & Rayner Clark. The units will produce potable water and turbine wash water directly from raw seawater at a temperature often below zero degrees Celsius. Life support systems, such as the fresh water maker, are necessary on offshore platform since it is difficult for supply boats to bring water to the platform in winter.
"This high specification engineering contract demonstrates that Ovivo possesses the technologies and equipment to meet the highest and most rigorous international requirements," said Marc Barbeau, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We booked large orders recently in the energy market thanks to our global platform which allows us to support our clients wherever their projects are located across the globe," added Mr. Barbeau.
