MONTREAL , Aug. 13, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is pleased to announce its participation in a financial consortium valued at close to $42 million for the purposes of assisting N-Viro Systems Canada LP with the construction of a biosolids management facility and for certain upgrades to the existing waste water treatment facility in the City of Greater Sudbury, Ontario.
Being led by N-Viro, the project stems from the City's commitment to adopt a sustainable method for the management of residual biosolids subsequent to the completion of a study and environmental assessment. The City presently operates nine secondary wastewater treatment facilities, where this wastewater is transported by truck and transferred into open treatment ponds. The new construction will allow the City to treat wastewater generated within the City, using an environmentally sustainable Canadian technology.
"Laurentian Bank is proud to be associated with this type of innovative municipal financing project within the framework of a public-private partnership," said Eric Provost , Senior Vice-President, Commercial. "In addition to representing a first in Ontario, the infrastructure to be installed will enable the City of Greater Sudbury to sustainably and responsibly manage its wastewater."
The solution proposed by N-Viro was retained subsequent to the issuance of a call for tenders. N-Viro operates certified installations in Leamington, Thorold, Sarnia, Halifax , Banff and Summerside, which all use the same proven technology to be employed in the City of Greater Sudbury. In addition to building the plant, N-Viro will also be responsible for its operation.
