Melbourne and New York --
- Further growth in South East Asia, entering the Philippines with the commissioning of a NIROBOX™ solution to produce drinking water from seawater at a coastal resort
- Further growth in South America, with Two NIROBOX™ units ordered by a municipality in Buenos Aires to provide relief to residents currently consuming highly contaminated water
Melbourne and New York, 1 March 2018 Fluence Corporation Limited (ASX: FLC) is pleased to announce its continued global growth, entering the Philippines, and further growing in Argentina, with agreements to provide its award-winning NIROBOX™ smart decentralized water treatment solution.
Commenting on the continued expansion of Fluence’s NIROBOXTM solution, the Company’s Managing Director and CEO Henry Charrabé said: “Fluence’s decentralized treatment solutions continue to provide fast, effective options for production of potable water around the globe. Our entry into the Philippines with commissioning undertaken one week after order receipt, and further growth in Argentina, clearly show the increasing global reach of the NIROBOX™ family of water treatment solutions, as well as the versatility of treatment options available from Fluence.”
Further growth in South East Asia, with Philippine market entry
In the Philippines, Fluence provided a Nirobox SW (seawater) unit to a new resort facility, to produce 1,000 m3/day of desalinated, potable water for consumption. The unit was installed and operating within one week of receiving the order.
This unprecedented time-to-water provided the resort an immediate, independent and reliable drinking water source. In addition, the highly compact seawater reverse osmosis (RO) pre-packaged system utilizing advanced membrane technologies included energy recovery features, saving the resort physical space and reducing its energy consumption.
Further growth in South America
In Argentina, Fluence will provide its first two Nirobox BW (brackish water) units in South America to the Municipality of Berazategui, in the province of Buenos Aires.
These brackish water treatment units will be installed in the industrial zone surrounding Buenos Aires and will produce 1,500 m3/day each of potable drinking water to be supplied to two areas where residents currently only have access to highly polluted well water. The custom-designed units, which include advanced RO and ultra-violet (UV) filtration technology, are expected to be built, delivered and commissioned in under 5 months.
