Batta Environmental, Newark received a U.S. Trade and Development Agency grant-funded contract award to provide environmental engineering services for CONAGUA, the National Water Commission of Mexico.
The initial phase of the project totals $540,000. The second stage of the project is estimated at $10 million, with the opportunity for more in the future.
The project focuses on Technical Assistance and Front-end Engineering Design for Water Quality Improvement in the Valle de Bravo reservoir. This reservoir is responsible for a portion of Mexico City’s drinking water supply.
Batta is leading a team of Environmental and Engineering personnel responsible for delivering technical design, construction analysis, cost estimates, environmental impact assessments, and funding mechanisms for the project aimed at sustainable and long-term improvement in water quality.
The success of this contract is due in large part to the support received from Export Delaware’s SBA State Trade Expansion Program (STEP) Grant and the United States Commercial Service, Batta reported.
Mexico has been a target country for significant expansion for Batta for the past few years. This contract and further expansion into Mexico will spur job creation at the company’s Newark office.
Batta Environmental is an environmental engineering, consulting, testing and health/safety. Projects including environmental investigations, remediation, health/safety are supported with in-house laboratories and clean technology products.
The firm operates throughout the United States and has operations in Mexico and the UAE.
