Fluence Corporation has announced that it has secured a SUBRE membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) sale in the Kingdom of Cambodia’s Sihanoukville Port for the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction through its local partner Xwater Technology. This order has a value of more than US$7 million, consists of 66 SUBRE towers, and is expected to be delivered by June 2020.
This Smart Products Solution consists of three separate SUBRE greenfield projects totaling 15,100 m3/day (two 4,500m3/day and one 6,100m3/day plant) for newly built decentralised wastewater treatment plants. The treated wastewater will meet standards equivalent to China’s Class 1B effluent standard and will be discharged directly into the sea without requiring further treatment.
This is the first biological sewage wastewater treatment system to be installed by the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction in the Kingdom of Cambodia. The rapid expansion of the population of Sihanoukville, limited available land for wastewater plants, and the expedited timeframe for delivery, were all key considerations in favor of Fluence’s SUBRE solution.
One of the main benefits of the MABR technology is that it producesreliable and consistent high effluent quality. The energy efficient, modular, and pre-engineered SUBRE plant has a smaller footprint than traditional treatment options and allows for quick and easy deployment supported by remote monitoring, as well as ease of operation and maintenance.
Commenting on this order, Fluence Managing Director & CEO Henry Charrabé said: “This is Fluence’s largest order of our MABR systems outside of China so far. We are further focusing on deploying our Smart Products Solutions in new geographies and are proud to supply MABR modules worldwide from our manufacturing facility in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province in China where production recently resumed following the extended Spring holidays. This order further solidifies Fluence’s position as a global leader in MABR and after the successful implementation of these solutions in Sihanoukville Port, will provide an excellent local reference for future biological wastewater treatment needs in Cambodia.”
