Environment monitors Envirosuite has just produced one of the ASX’s more unique contract wins — it’s going to provide an odour monitoring and management system in Kuwait.
Envirosuite (ASX:EVS) develops platforms which provide a range of environmental monitoring, management and investigative capabilities, used in the mining, oil refinery, transportation and water management industries.
It is also tapped by governments looking to ensure the odours associated with such industries don’t interfere too much with community well-being.
And Envirosuite today told investors that it had secured a three-year contract for a smart city project with the Kuwait Environment Public Authority (K-EPA) to provide a “city-wide odour monitoring and management system”.
They responded in kind, sending the company’s shares up as much as 33 per cent, to 6.9c.
“K-EPA will utilise Envirosuite’s solution to drive improved methods and outcomes for identifying, analysing and responding to odour issues and general air quality management for the benefit of its citizens in the state of Kuwait,” the company says.
It will see 90 of Envirosuite’s new ‘E-nose’ sensors tuned to identify client-specific categories of odour that feed data into the company’s tech.
“We’re very pleased to have been awarded this initial implementation of our solution in a major smart cities project. We look forward to working with K-EPA on their project to deliver our world-leading solution for the management of odour issues across Kuwait city and surrounding regions,” chief Peter White said.
“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.”
