May 2, 2018 -- Fluence Corporation Limited (ASX: FLC) announced today that it has secured a contract from the Changping District government for the purchase of an Aspiral™ S1 smart-packaged MABR-based solution (formerly known as CMABR) for use in a municipal wastewater treatment plant. The plant will be located in Changping District, Municipality of Beijing, Hebei province, China. This is the first contract won through Fluence’s new local partners Glory Land (Beijing) Science & Technology Co., Ltd., which will also provide the civil works. Once completed, the plant will be used by the Changping District government to treat domestic wastewater from an innovative underground treatment installation. Fluence’s Aspiral™ S1 unit is designed to treat wastewater to effluent standards which exceed Class 1A quality in order to comply with Beijing local standards. The unit will treat 20 m3 /d (5,000 GPD) and is scheduled to be commissioned as soon as October 2018. It is expected that this project will allow Fluence to leverage further opportunities for its decentralized, smart-packaged wastewater treatment solutions in China’s capital, which has the strictest effluent standards in all of China. Commenting on this most recent award in China, Fluence Managing Director & CEO Henry Charrabé said: “Following yesterday’s unveiling of the rebranding of our Aspiral family of wastewater treatment solutions, it gives me great pleasure to announce today that we continue to make progress on our growth strategy in China with this sale of an Aspiral™ S1 in a new province and with a new partner. We’ve standardized features and options of our packaged units that make these innovative solutions easy to customize, install, use, maintain, and even expand. We’re confident that, within this family of products, we have a solution to satisfy any customers’ need for any municipal domestic wastewater treatment challenge in China.” Commenting on its partnership with Fluence, Glory Land Chairman Mr. Huashan Wu, noted, “We believe that Fluence's MABR technology is advanced and are quite confident that it satisfies the Municipality of Beijing’s increasingly stringent standards for effluent discharge. We believe this is the beginning of a fruitful partnership between Fluence and Glory Land”.
