seawater de-salination

A US$10 million contract for the design, engineering and construction of a 12,000 m3/day seawater desalination plant for one of the world’s largest steel producers has been executed for US$ 10 million recently by Fluence Corporation Limited. The customer’s steel production facility in eastern Brazil has been chosen as the location for the plant. Furthermore, it is expected that by Q2 2019 the construction on this Customer Engineered Solution will commence and by Q4 2020 it will be operational.

In order to address water security and to reduce dependence on the exisiting local utility, the customer had used international tender process, consequently selecting Fluence’s desalination solution. As high as 30% water delivery to the customer has been curtailed by the state- owned utility amid the water crisis over the past many years. In Brazil this plant will be the largest desalination plant as it will be built for modular to 24,000 m3/day and 36,000 m3/day.

According to the Managing Director & CEO of Fluence, Henry Charrabé, till date this is the largest project for Fluence in Brazil, additionally providing a valuable reference site. As the company is stepping towards securing a dominating position across the globe in the global decentralized water and wastewater treatment markets with local expertise, Brazil is the company’s key focus market among others. Charrabé further expressed the company’s pleasure in being trusted by this pivotal international customer once again and believing in Fluence’s engineers’ workforce. Fluence looks forward to the growing relationship across its global operations.
