Armtec Infrastructure Income Fund has been awarded a $26.9 million contract to supply water management products to upgrade the Southeast Collector Sewer System, which is part of the York Durham Sewage System (YDSS), a wastewater collection system first constructed by the Province of Ontario in the late 1970s and early 1980s. For the project, the fund will manufacture and deliver 12,500 precast concrete segmental rings, each of which is three-metres in diameter. When installed, the rings will collectively form a continuous tunnel liner of 15 kilometres.
The project is scheduled to begin production in mid-January 2010 and ramp up to full production status by mid-March. When construction is completed, the upgraded sewer system will support future growth of commercial development and expansion of residential communities in the York and Durham regions.
