The energy services subsidiary of FilterBoxx Water & Environmental Corp. has inked a three-year contract with an oil sands producer. The deal calls for the operations and maintenance of multiple plants at a steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) operation in Fort McMurray AB.
Under terms of the deal, FilterBoxx Energy Services will operate a total of seven treatment plants - four potable plants and three wastewater plants including all ancillary equipment as well as the distribution and collections systems.
"FilterBoxx has been operating and maintaining camp-based utility systems in Western Canada since 2006. As a result of this experience, FilterBoxx has developed a highly trained and rigorous Plant Operations and Maintenance group recognized by our customers for Safety, Environmental Stewardship and Plant Performance Optimization,” said Larry Novachis, CEO at FilterBoxx Water & Environmental.
In addition to operations, the company’s engineering and environmental team will also play a significant role in this project with process engineering support, as well as ensuring environmental compliance for the SAGD site.
"This is of paramount importance to the client and FilterBoxx will take on a leadership role in the effort, thereby eliminating the operations risk from the client,” added Novachis.
