Fluence Corp Ltd has entered into a new partnership and secured another contract award to deliver multiple MABR-based Aspiral™ smart packaged solutions in China.

The new partnership with environmental EPC firm Zhongzi Huaze, and contract win for a 1500 m3/day wastewater treatment plant, are the first for Fluence in Jilin Province, a region in the far Northeast of China which can have extreme cold weather.

The contract is for six Aspiral L5 units to be delivered by December 2018 and commissioned and operating by January 2019.

Temperatures in Jilin Province can often drop to -30ºC, which can make wastewater treatment challenging. Because of its reduced need for active aeration, Fluence says that its MABR-based Smart Packaged Aspiral solution can be adapted to perform efficiently under these conditions.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Fluence to showcase another outstanding feature of its Aspiral Smart Packaged wastewater treatment solution, which is its ability to deliver the required Class 1A effluent, even in conditions of extreme cold,” said Fluence managing director and CEO Henry Charrabé. “The multi-unit order is aligned with our China growth strategy, and we look forward to a fruitful partnership with Zhongzi Huaze in this region.”
