Building on the Company's recent successes, Fluence's smart packaged NIROBOX(TM) desalination system will provide Mayotte a quick and environmentally-friendly solution to address water scarcity.
Smart packaged NIROBOX(TM) Plant Solution and Record Delivery Time Win Another Contract for Seawater Desalination
Henry Charrabe, Fluence Managing Director and CEO said: "The global decentralized water purification market value will increase from US$2.7B in 2016 to US$4.4B in 2021. We have designed our NIROBOX(TM) smart packaged solution to capture a large part of this market. Due to its many design advantages that result in significant energy and cost savings for the client and the very short delivery time, VINCI Construction Grands Projets selected the smart packaged NIROBOX(TM) SW reverse osmosis desalination solution for this project. This not only aligns with Fluence's ongoing mission to assist our clients in maximizing their water resources, but NIROBOX'S(TM) modular flexibility will allow Mayotte to expand and adapt the plant as their needs change."
The island of Mayotte, situated between Madagascar and the coast of Mozambique, in the Indian Ocean, is an overseas department of France. It consists of a main island, Grande-Terre, a smaller island, Petite-Terre, and several islets around these two. Treated water from the NIROBOX(TM) will serve the entire Petite-Terre island population.
Mayotte was forced to impose water restrictions due to the late arrival of seasonal rains. The island's resources were already under pressure from a rising local population, which saw water consumption jump by 9.7 percent in 2016. The drought has exacerbated Mayotte's water scarcity and an immediate solution for high-quality potable water was needed.
Fluence will supply three NIROBOX(TM)-SWRO systems with a total capacity of 3,000 m3/d to VINCI Construction Grands Projets, a major player worldwide for design & build infrastructure projects, which will build the plant including intake and brine discharge line. The plant will be operated locally by the water utility SMAE (Societe Mahoraise des Eaux).
Fluence will be shipping the units within 2 months from receiving the purchase order thanks to its highly efficient manufacturing operation. NIROBOX(TM) smart packaged solutions deliver the market's lowest energy consumption and chemical usage thanks to a patent-pending process design minimizing its impact on the environment.
The NIROBOX(TM) SW desalination system is a modular, pre-assembled, smart packaged containerized solution that is ideal for rapid deployment, and requires only a small land footprint area with minimal infrastructure. It comes ready for integration with other systems and equipment, which makes it easy to deploy, install and commission. Its modular design allows for staged expansion to support capacity upgrades and contributes to its fast-to-deploy setup, the shortest in the desalination industry.
