Manufacturer and installer of decentralized water, wastewater and reuse treatment solutions, Fluence Corporation, announced that it secured its first volume contract for packaged plants to treat wastewater from new volume partner Yangzhou Yijian Group Co. in Jiangsu province, the fifth most populous in China.
The plants which are covered under the $2 million plus order will serve up to 46,000 people and are intended to address an urgent need by the Housing and Urban/Rural Development Bureau of Sihong County to deploy a solution before year-end.
In order to break into the lucrative Chinese market, Fluence has partnered with several local organisations. Yangzhou Yijian is headquartered on the Yangtze River near Nanjing and has proven ability in construction, municipal facility and highway engineering, water conservancy and environmental protection. Yangzhou Yijian joins existing Fluence volume partners China Three Gorges Group, Hubei ITEST, Kaitian Environmental and Liaoning Huahong.
Individual Aspiral systems can be configured to treat wastewater from as few as 30-40 people or up to 3,000–4,000 people and an Aspiral plant can consist of one or more distinct systems, Flounce said the precise number of plants will be determined in the near future as the project is implemented.
Commenting on these achievements, Fluence Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Irving said: “We are very pleased to win our first volume deployment in Jiangsu province with our new volume partner Yangzhou Yijian. Our ability to rapidly deliver and commission Aspiral solutions was clearly a factor in securing this new partnership. In addition to being the fifth most populous with an estimated 85 million people, Jiangsu province is also the most densely populated in all of China. This win offers further proof that, even in densely populated areas, Fluence’s Aspiral MABR plants are helping to drive the global trend towards decentralized treatment due to the considerable savings on pipes and other in-ground infrastructure. Since Aspiral systems operate automatically without onsite staff and with minimal maintenance, they are the perfect solution for such decentralized deployments.”
