MELBOURNE, Australia & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluence Corporation Limited (ASX: FLC) is pleased to announce that it was awarded another contract to deliver an Aspiral™ smart packaged MABR technology solution in China. This new contract win is for a 1,000 m3/day wastewater treatment plant for the town of Baiceng, Zhenfeng County, Guizhou province.
This is the third contract secured by Fluence’s local Chinese partner Jiangsu Jinzi Environment Company (Jinzi) and follows November 2017 and March 2018 orders. Jinzi has now secured eight Aspiral™ smart packaged MABR technology solution projects for Fluence, totaling wastewater treatment capacity of 7,900 m3/day.
This newest project will consist of four (4) Aspiral™ L5 units that will treat wastewater for the town of Baiceng, to consistently meet China’s Class 1A effluent standards. Fluence was awarded this contract, in part, due to the client’s confidence in the MABR technology.
Jinzi Managing Director Xie Xiaodong said: “Through the cooperation with Fluence on the Zhenfeng Educational Park Project, we have seen the benefits of Fluence’s MABR technology and the AspiralTM containerized solution. We are happy to further cooperate with Fluence on the Baiceng Town rural wastewater treatment project.”
Fluence Managing Director and CEO Henry Charrabé added: “Jinzi recognizes the significant advantages of Aspiral™ for the treatment of wastewater in China. Through earlier installations, they have seen firsthand that our MABR technology consistently delivers the desired results. We are encouraged by our strong partnership with Jinzi and expect more success together in the future.”
This Aspiral™ smart packaged plant will be commissioned and operational within 2018, helping the Zhenfeng County government continue to approach compliance with China’s current 5-year plan targets. The current 13th 5 Year Plan, which covers 2016-2020, specifies that 70% of wastewater in rural areas must be treated, up from 10% at the start of the five year period. As one of the least urbanized provinces in China, Guizhou Province is a strategic target market for Jinzi and Fluence due to its extensive wastewater treatment needs.
