MELBOURNE, Australia & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluence Corporation Limited (ASX: FLC) announced today that it has secured a contract from the Yiyang City government for the deployment of an Aspiral™ L4 smart-packaged MABR-based solution (formerly known as C-MABR) for use in a municipal wastewater treatment plant. The plant will be located in Xielingang Township, Yiyang City, Hunan province, China.
This is the first contract won through Fluence’s new local partner Kaitian Environmental Technology Company Ltd. Kaitian Environmental Technology Company is based in Hunan Province and its parent company is Hunan AeroSpace Company Limited, a state-owned company. Fluence’s Aspiral™ L4 unit will treat 200 m3/d (50,000 GPD) and is scheduled to be commissioned as soon as July 2018. It is expected that this project will allow Fluence to leverage further opportunities through this partner in this region.
Commenting on another Aspiral™ award in China, Fluence Managing Director & CEO Henry Charrabé said: “I’m pleased to see yet another partner in Kaitian and the Yiyang City Government put their trust in Fluence and our Aspiral™ solutions. We continue to progress on our growth strategy in China with this sale of an Aspiral™ L4 in a new province and with a new partner. Considering the previous sale announced last month, it’s clear we are building momentum toward our goal of capturing a sizeable portion of the rural wastewater treatment opportunity in China. Together with our partners, we are focused on making Aspiral™ the standard for reliably achieving efficient Class 1A discharge.”
