Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


The project will procure an integrated system of water purification, storage, distribution, transportation and sustainment equipment to support the supply of water to Canadian Armed Forces sub-units in training and on operations. In order to realize procurement efficiencies, this project will incorporate the water production and distribution requirements of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and Canadian Joint Operations Command (CJOC).


The project will improve the ability of the Canadian Armed Forces to purify water at the sub-unit level (125 to 250 soldiers). It will replace and augment the existing sub-unit water purification systems to fully sustain Regular and Reserve units on operations. Deliverables are expected to include a combined ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis based water purification system, associated water storage and distribution systems, sustainment kits and integrated logistics support. The project will modernize the storage and transport of water at a sub-unit level by acquiring a water tank (capacity of up to 3 000 L) to replace the in-service water trailer.
