Fluence Argentina has been awarded a US$2.5m turnkey contract to provide a high efficiency wastewater and reuse treatment plant for a customer in the food and beverage industry.
The industrial wastewater treatmen plant will have a capacity of 1,320 m3/d and the project has an estimated execution time of 8.5 months.
The plant is designed to optimize the footprint, minimize operating costs and provide a highly reliable treatment process, Fluence says.
Fluence Argentina installed its first MBR reuse system in Argentina in 2013 with a capacity of 1,000 m3/d, a project executed for a customer in non-alcoholic beverages. According to the company, the Argentina market for industrial MBR applications is growing rapidly due to a number of factors, including process reliability, optimization of operating costs, and the possibility of revamping treatment plants.
In addition to this industrial customer, Fluence South America is reported to be pursuing a number of municipal projects where MABR provides significant benefits over traditional technologies such as class 1a quality, power consumption reduction of up to 90% and nitrogen removal.
