Clean TeQ Holdings Limited (ASX: CLQ) shares have risen by 6% in early morning trading, after the company announced it has secured two new additional water purification contracts in Queensland and Oman. At the time of writing, the Clean TeQ share price is trading up by 1.5 cents to 26.5 cents.

Queensland contract

The Clean TeQ share price is surging higher today after the company reported it has won a competitive tender. In its announcement, Clean TeQ advised it has been awarded a contract valued at over $2 million by the Mackay Regional Council for the upgrade of a bore water treatment plant at Koumala.

In this agreement, Clean TeQ will design, supply, and install an ion exchange treatment to remove hardness and lower the salinity of an existing bore water supply.

This is done in order to reduce the scaling of pipes, and improve taste for use in the potable water supply of Koumala.

Clean TeQ will manage the full design, procurement, construction and commissioning of the plant including subcontracting of civil works.

The program of works is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2021, and run through to the end of the year.

Oman contract

In late 2019, Clean TeQ was was engaged by Multotec, the company’s sales and delivery partner in Africa, to deliver a waste water treatment system at an antimony processing facility in Oman.

The company’s DESLAX technology was used in this project to remove a range of deleterious elements from up to 200 tonnes of waste water per day.

By treating the waste, the customer is able to recycle a significant proportion of the water for re-use in its processing plant, rather than disposing of it.

This provides a valuable cost saving for the customer in a geographic location where water is relatively scarce.

In today’s announcement, Clean TeQ advised it has been awarded a contract to undertake the detailed design for an upgrade of this water treatment plant.

The upgrade will focus on neutralising the waste liquors, and precipitating contaminants for easier recovery.

Management reaction

Clean TeQ Managing Director and CEO Sam Riggall was pleased with the contract wins, saying:

Our water business continues to build on the successes achieved over the past year. Having demonstrated our capability in designing, constructing and commissioning our highly effective proprietary water purification systems in a range of different applications, our focus is now shifting towards revenue growth.
