Ottawa – 7 November 2018 – BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX-V: BLM) is pleased to announce the award of a $4.16 million contract from Seaspan Shipyards for new Shipboard Reverse Osmosis Desalination (SROD) Water Purification Systems for the Royal Canadian Navy Joint Support Ships (JSS). The project represents a landmark contract for BluMetric as it positions the Company with Seaspan.
The contract is BluMetric’s first with Seaspan, Canada’s chosen non-combat shipbuilder under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) and one of the largest shipbuilding and ship repair companies in Canada.
BluMetric’s SROD water purification systems are designed to bring cutting edge desalination technologies to naval vessels, resulting in significant fleet energy savings while almost doubling output. In addition to being selected to provide new SROD units, BluMetric will provide harbour acceptance trials (HAT) and sea acceptance trials (SAT).
“Being competitively selected by a company as important in Canada as Seaspan to provide a quality Canadian made product is a solid endorsement of our capabilities”, said Scott MacFabe, CEO of BluMetric. “We are proud to be part of an initiative as important to Canada as the NSS and to partner with a company as integral to our country’s shipbuilding industry as Seaspan.”
“Thanks to work under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS), Seaspan Shipyards is developing a Canadian supply chain that can respond to the needs of our domestic shipbuilding industry” said Mark Lamarre CEO of Seaspan Shipyards. “With this supply chain development, the NSS is encouraging investment by Canadian companies, supporting the development of export opportunities, and creating highly-skilled, middle class jobs across Canada. Our relationship with BluMetric Environmental is an important one and their involvement in the NSS demonstrates the national impact of Canada’s shipbuilding program.”
