- Contract generated through repeat customer Jinzi
- Builds on original six C-MABR order under Jinzi's framework agreement
- Fast commissioning time helps secure contract win
The contract was generated through Fluence's local partner in China, Jiangsu Jinzi Environment Company (Jinzi), and is in addition to the order for six C-MABR plants under the companies' November 2017 framework agreement.
Fluence's technology will treat rural wastewater for the Zhenfeng County government utilising the company's C-MABR solution, which consistently meets China's Class 1A effluent standards. In addition to its state-of-the-art technology, Fluence was awarded the contract as a result of fast commissioning - delivery of the entire C-MABR plant, including tertiary treatment and supply of auxiliary supporting equipment, is scheduled to take place in just five weeks.
Commenting on this new contract in China, Fluence Managing Director & CEO Henry Charrabé said: "We are proud of our partnership with Jinzi and are happy to see our collaboration grow in China. Once again, we see that Fluence's C-MABR solution is well-suited for the rural Chinese wastewater treatment market, and we believe we are ideally positioned to capture a significant share of this market. Our ability to rapidly deliver reliable and cost-effective wastewater treatment solutions is recognised by clients and partners and was a key factor in this new contract award."
Commenting on this project, Jinzi Managing Director Xie Xiaodong said: "Jinzi is successfully expanding its wastewater business across China. We are confident that together with Fluence Corporation, we will continue our rapid growth in the environmental services industry. We have partnered with Fluence as we believe that their MABR technology will be widely applied to rural wastewater treatment in China in the near future. I hope that based on our concept of win-win cooperation, Fluence and Jinzi will have a broad, long-term and strategic cooperation in China rural wastewater treatment."
Fluence's C-MABR unit features modular engineering for quick and easy deployment, even in remote areas, energy-saving features and remote monitoring for ease of operation and maintenance. When completed, this Fluence C-MABR project will be part of the largest rural wastewater project in Zhenfeng county, Guizhou province, China.
