MELBOURNE, Australia & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluence Corporation Limited (ASX:FLC), a global leader in distributed water and wastewater treatment solutions, through its Argentina-based South American subsidiary, has been awarded a US$2.5M turnkey contract to provide a high efficiency wastewater and reuse treatment plant. The customer, a world leader in the Food & Beverage Industry, has selected Fluence Argentina to carry out this project with an estimated execution time of 8.5 months.
The industrial wastewater treatment plant is designed to optimize the footprint, minimize operating costs and provide a highly reliable treatment process. The plant has a capacity of 1,320 m3/d.
With more than 25 years of experience in the South American water, wastewater and reuse market, Fluence Argentina installed its first MBR reuse system in Argentina in 2013 with a capacity of 1,000 m3/d, a project executed for a world leader in non-alcoholic beverages.
The Argentina market for industrial MBR applications is growing rapidly due to the following key factors: reliability of process, optimization of operating costs, possibility of revamping treatment plants, reuse of high quality effluents, among others. Fluence Argentina has established a professional in-house team in 2016 dedicated to serve the reuse market. The Company has developed a Master Plan projected to 2025, given the very encouraging anticipated growth in the coming years. Fluence Argentina has therefore a perfect set-up to successfully develop these reuse projects in Argentina, as well as throughout all of South America.
Fluence's proprietary MABR technology is focused on the municipal market rather than industrial wastewater treatment and reuse. In addition to this industrial customer, Fluence South America is pursuing a number of municipal projects where MABR provides significant benefits over traditional technologies such as class 1a quality, power consumption reduction of up to 90% and nitrogen removal.
