BluMetric lands contract with multinational mining company

Ottawa cleantech company BluMetric announced Wednesday it had secured a $1.1-million contract to design and deliver a water treatment plant to a multinational mining company in northern Ontario.

The plant will make sure infiltrated water pumped from the mine will meet Ministry of Environment requirements.

“This contract is a result of our team’s ability to approach each customer’s situation with innovative thinking, solve site-specific problems, and still deliver quickly,” BluMetric’s water division president, Dan Scroggins, said in a statement.

The treatment plant will be delivered within 90 days. Its modular nature makes it easily portable, allowing it to be used at other sites in the future.
