Environmental management technology developer Envirosuite (ASX: EVS) has scooped up a major contract to provide a city-wide odour monitoring and management system in Kuwait.
Not only is this Envirosuite’s first “whole-of-city” application win, it is also the company’s first sale and large-scale rollout of its new proprietary “E-nose” sensors.
According to Envirosuite, this three-year deal with the Kuwait Environment Public Authority (K-EPA) is worth a total of $1.2 million. This includes $265,000 expected to be added to the group’s annual recurring revenue through the ongoing provision and maintenance of hardware and software.
Under the contract, the company will provide a network of 90 E-nose sensors, which are tuned to identify “client-specific categories of odour” that feed data into Envirosuite’s environmental compliance and incident intelligence solutions.
This is expected to enable the K-EPA to identify, analyse and respond to odour and general air quality management issues across Kuwait City and its surrounding regions.
According to the company, this Kuwait “smart city” project continues the trend of clients seeking a “full end-to-end service” including the software platform bundled with appropriate hardware.
“K-EPA has advised that this contract is only considered as an initial phase and a significant expansion is anticipated in the medium-term subject to the success of this project,” it stated.
“Envirosuite is in an excellent position to become a leading supplier of air quality solutions to smart-city projects globally and we are already receiving in-bound enquiries from other regions, including South America, for similar smart-city projects,” Envirosuite chief executive officer Peter White said.
The company’s environmental management platform is currently being used worldwide by governments as well as clients in the mining, oil refining, transportation and water management industries.
In October, Envirosuite netted a significant upgrade order from its existing client and Latin America’s largest coal mine Carbones del Cerrejon, jointly owned by mining majors BHP (ASX: BHP), Glencore (LSE: GLEN) and Anglo American (LSE: AAL).
The upgrade involved two additional solutions plus associated equipment, installation and maintenance services, valued at a total of $600,000.
