BluMetric Awarded $11.5M Standing Offer
The Department of National Defence has awarded a contract to BluMetric Environmental Inc., an integrated product and service organization providing water treatment, valued at up to $11.5 million. BluMetric was selected to provide Repair and Overhaul Services, Engineering support and Field Service support for the Canadian Navy’s Shipboard Reverse Osmosis Desalination (SROD) systems for up to 5 years.
The Contract is for a three-year period totaling $6.9 million with two possible one-year extensions of up to $ 2.3 million each year. The final amount spent in any given year is at DND’s discretion, such amount varying according to the Navy’s needs. The Contract process provides the Canadian Forces with immediate response and support to their equipment requirements. The Company has been awarded similar Contracts by DND in the past, including for the equipment in this new Contract and for the Army’s Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Units (ROWPU). Each frigate in the Canadian Navy has a starboard and port SROD that produces drinking water and generalpurpose water for the ship. The Canadian Navy’s water standards are extremely high, and it is essential that during deployments a reliable supply of high quality water is available.
