Omnipure Awarded $1.3-Million Contract From Canadian Navy

A contract was awarded recently to Omnipure, a division of Sigma- Chapman, Inc., Houston, Texas, exceeding $1.3 million to design and build Marine Sanitation Devices (MSD) for six new patrol frigates of the Canadian Navy, according to Leonard Langeland, Omnipure president.

"These particular MSD units," said Mr. Langeland, "will be specially designed for high-impact shock resistance, and engineered for extremely low noise and vibration levels." Mr. Langeland also stated that the smaller size and reduced weight of these MSD units on each 224- man vessel will allow additional equipment and supplies to be carried.

The Canadian Navy's decision to add these MSDs represents a growing trend of navies throughout the world to honor the "good citizen" concept of proper sewage treatment before discharge at sea.

The Omnipure MSD utilizes a patented electrocatalytic process for the treatment of both black and gray waste water, and is certified by the US Coast Guard, the International Maritime Organization, DOT-UK, Sweden, Denmark and several other authorities.

The "City Class" Patrol Frigates are being built by Saint John Shipbuilding Ltd., at shipyards in New Brunswick and Ontario, Canada, and will be completed during the period from 1986 to 1988.
