Hydro International, a provider of environmentally sustainable products and solutions that control and treat storm water, wastewater and combined sewer overflows (CSO), recently announced the receipt of a $2.6 million contract to provide solutions for a large river clean-up project in Belgium.
The deal calls for Hydro International to supply CSO technology with 37 Storm King Overflow units with Swirl-Cleanse Screen Separators and one Grit King Separator. The Belgian solution is based on the same design Hydro implemented in November 2006 at the Treatment Works facility in Saco, Maine.
The Belgian project is located in the city of Namur in the Wallonia region. Part of the contract allows for partial fabrication under license by the main contractor, CFE EcoTech, with key component manufacturing being retained by Hydro. The contract will be handled by the company’s Water and Wastewater Division in Ely, U.K., and will be spread over three years.
“This deal illustrates the true power of Hydro’s international enterprise, taking an innovative design our U.S. [office] engineered for Saco, Maine, and working with our partners in Belgium to apply it in a new setting,” said Stephen P. Hides, CEO of Hydro International, based in Portland, Maine. “We are proud to bring our synergies to this prestigious project.”
