Fluence Corporation Limited announces 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.”
