Paul Boulay and Dana Gannon are among BluMetric's roughly 100 Ottawa-based employees.
The deal is with Grupo Unidos por el Canal, an international consortium that is currently conducting a major expansion of the canal. BluMetric will begin delivering equipment during the first half of 2014.
"This project provides a strong indication of our ability to market and deliver our solutions to large multinational customers, a specific trigger for growth outlined in our strategic plan," said Roger Woeller, BluMetric's co-CEO, in a press release.
"We have a significant presence in Latin America, and this project signals our readiness to expand in that region. We look forward to working with GUPC as it undertakes this mega-project."
