Fluence Corporation has secured its first volume contract for packaged plants to treat wastewater from new volume partner Yangzhou Yijian Group Co. LTD. (Yangzhou Yijian) in Jiangsu province, the fifth most populous in China and adjacent to Shanghai. The plants will serve up to 46,000 people. The order is intended to address the urgent phase 1 needs of the Housing and Urban/Rural Development Bureau of Sihong County to deploy a solution before year end.
Founded in 2007, 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. Since individual Aspiral systems can be configured to treat wastewater from as few as 30-40 people (Aspiral Micro) or up to 3,000 – 4,000 people (Aspiral L5) and an Aspiral plant can consist of one or more Aspiral systems, the precise number of Aspiral 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.”
