Quebec City-based EnGlobe has been awarded an environmental service contract by the state of Israel to rehabilitate the Kishon River in Haifa Bay, Israel.
The contract, valued at over $40 million, is 36 months long and will provide decontaminating services to Kishon Drainage and Rivers Authority and the Ministry of Environmental Protection.
The service provided by EnGlobe will decontaminate over seven kilometres of the Kishon River which flows into Haifa Bay.
With EnGlobe’s Biopile technology, EnGlobe and its Biogenie division will decontaminate over half a million cubic metres of sediments, and will supervise the construction of the future recreational and ecological park in Haifa.
More than 220,000 shekels ($58,000 CAD) will have been invested to improve the water quality and convert the former industrial zone into an area for local residents.
