Fluence Corporation has received an order for five Nirobox from a customer in the Middle East for an emergency application for drinking water.
These products will be used for seawater desalination in a region that has limited access to fresh and drinkable water.
They will be shipped within two weeks and will be recognised as revenue for Fluence in Q4 2019.
“This win further validates our view that decentralised pre-engineered Smart Product Solutions are the future of the water treatment industry,” CEO Henry Charrabé said.
“The ability to rapidly build, ship and install these units, which will provide 5000 cubic metres per day of drinking water, was a key differentiating factor in Fluence’s value proposition to the customer.”
The Nirobox desalination system is a modular, pure-assembled, smart package containerised solution that is ideal for deployment.
It comes ready for integration and requires only a small land footprint area with minimal infrastructure.
It streamlines the economic, logistical and environmental challenges that are associated with large-scale desalination and centralised water treatment plants.
Nirobox can be used for a variety of applications such as the desalination for potable and industrial water and can meet the most strict regulatory requirements.
The process includes a cleaning process for the ultrafiltration membranes that inhibit microorganism growth and scaling. Its recovery rate currently sits at 50 per cent.
Fluence has also been awarded a €1.5 million contract by VINCI Construction Grands Projects to supply three Nirobox’s to the island of Mayotte and a 10,000 cubic metre desalination plant in South Africa.
The Middle East marks a key target for Nirobox and Fluence is planning on placing a greater emphasis on growing orders in the region.
