Canadian firm wins Saudi water treatment contract

Published by Steve Coleman on January 18, 2012

An Ottawa engineering firm has been awarded a $4 million contract to build a wastewater treatment system in Saudi Arabia.

The project is a Naturally Engineered Wastewater Treatment system at an industrial site being built to smelter bauxite and aluminum.

Seprotech Systems Incorporated says the system uses a fixed-film technology and a natural tidal wetland to clean up the water before it's put back into circulation.

"This is a very important project for Seprotech and represents our first contract in the Middle-East where water scarcity and conservation are paramount as they represent a major hurdle to economic growth," said President & CEO Harry Marshall in a news release. "We have only been working with our new partner in Saudi Arabia for three months and this relationship is already bringing in excellent results."

The company says it hopes the contract will lead to more engineering work in the Middle East.
