ZENON Obtains Repeat Cruise Line Order
OAKVILLE, Ontario, Jul. 25 - /EWire/ -- ZENON Environmental Inc. (TSE:ZEN.; TSE:ZEN.A.) announced today that it has sold two additional water treatment systems to Holland America Lines Westours (HALW).
The contract for the two systems is valued at approximately $5 million.
This marks the third order ZENON has received from HALW, bringing the total ships to five that will be using ZENON's patented ZenoGem(r) technology.
In light of recent landmark legislation in Alaska, all vessels sailing Alaskan waters must now undergo strict sampling and testing requirements for any wastewater discharged into the sensitive marine environment. This opens the door for other states and provinces to follow suit in the preservation of similar marine areas that require an environmentally friendly solution.
ZeeWeed(r) ultrafiltration immersed hollow-fibre membranes are the heart of ZENON's ZenoGem(r) membrane bioreactor. The membranes, under the application of a slight suction, allow clean water to pass to the inside of the membrane fibre, leaving biomass and suspended solids in the bioreactor. ZENON's system eliminates the discharge of normal black and gray water into any environmentally sensitive area.
ZENON is a world leader in providing advanced membrane products and services for water purification, wastewater treatment and water reuse.
Chosen as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers, the ZENON group of companies operates from nine locations in North America, six in Europe, and one in each of Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
ZENON's products and services are marketed for a variety of municipal and industrial applications through ZENON's offices and representatives located throughout the world.
