Fluence Signs First Higher Standard Wastewater Treatment SUBRE Order in New Province in China

Fluence Signs First Higher Standard Wastewater Treatment SUBRE Order in New Province in China

Fluence Corporation Limited is ​pleased to ​announce the ​execution of a ​contract for ​the delivery of ​the first SUBRE ​project in ​China that will ​be used to meet ​the higher ​stringent ​wastewater ​standard Class ​IV Surface ​Water Discharge.​ The Class IV ​standard ​requires total ​nitrogen of ​less than 1.5 ​milligrams per ​liter (mg/L), ​which is ​significantly ​stricter than ​the 15 mg/L ​allowable under ​the Class 1A ​
Wastewater ​Discharge ​standards. ​

The 1,200 m3/​day greenfield ​SUBRE project ​will be located ​in Mianzhu City,​ Sichuan ​Province, and ​will consist of ​24 SUBRE units, ​each of which ​contains 3 of ​Fluence’s ​proprietary ​MABR modules. ​The order was ​placed by local ​partner Sichuan ​Development ​Guorun ​Environmental ​Investment Co., ​Ltd. (“​Guorun ​Environmental”​) for ​installation in ​a wastewater ​treatment plant ​owned by ​Mianzhu Guorun ​Water Supply Co.​, Ltd and ​represents the ​second SUBRE ​order in as ​many months. ​The project is ​expected to be ​completed ​before the end ​of 2019. ​

Commenting on ​this award, ​Fluence ​Managing ​Director & CEO ​ Henry ​Charrabé ​ said:

“​This order ​represents ​another ​important ​milestone in ​the development ​of Fluence’​s market ​position in a ​new province in ​China and ​represents ​several notable ​first-time ​events: this is ​the first SUBRE ​project being ​used to meet ​the strict ​Class IV ​Surface Water ​Discharge ​standards in ​China, the ​first order ​from our ​partner Guorun ​Environmental, ​and the first ​order in ​Sichuan ​Province, one ​of the most ​populous ​provinces in ​China. The ​ability to ​service ​customers with ​Class IV ​Discharge ​requirements ​opens a new and ​significant ​market segment ​for Fluence’​s MABR products ​in China. ​Further, we are ​very excited ​about the fast ​market adoption ​of our SUBRE ​product, which ​was only ​launched in ​March of this ​year. We look ​forward to ​demonstrating ​the effluent ​compliance of ​our second ​SUBRE sale in ​China and ​expanding the ​important ​relationship ​with Guorun ​Environmental.​”​
