Premier Dalton McGuinty pitches Ontario’s green IT credentials in India

Ontario’s trade mission to India moved from Mumbai to Hyderabad last week, as the Premier and the delegation met with Indian business leaders who are keen to see their economy grow green.

In Mumbai, Ontario green tech firms signed more than $250 million in agreements with Indian partners during the fifth day of Ontario’s Clean Technology Mission to India. Premier McGuinty led a signing ceremony between Indian companies and Ontario’s clean technology companies.

Together they announced the following:

* RV Anderson of Toronto, Mott MacDonald Limited and PHE Consultants have been working together since 2007 on the design and implementation of the Mumbai Sewage Priority Works Projects, which includes improvements to the City of Mumbai’s waste water system. The project was initially secured during Ontario’s 2007 Trade Mission to India and has now expanded significantly.

* Ontario’s Canasia Power Corp and Chem Process Systems Pvt. Limited signed a Memorandum of Understanding to produce and develop heat transfer technologies, energized and powered by Canasia designed Solar Power Systems.

* PCI Geomatics announced an agreement with Rolta Inc. to provide Rolta with world-leading environment monitoring and market access technology.

In Hyderabad, the delegation hosted a dinner that also included a selection of Ontario wines. The event brought Ontario business and academic leaders together with their counterparts in Hyderabad.

Ontario’s trade mission features delegates from 27 green technology firms, including new and renewable energy experts.
