United Envirotech Ltd awarded RMB 100 million membrane bioreactor BOT contract in Shandong China

19 August 2013


United Envirotech Ltd has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary United Envirotech Water Resource Pte Ltd has been awarded a 25-year Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) contract from the local government of Yantai City for a municipal wastewater treatment project in Shandong Province, China.

The capacity of the treatment plant is 30,000 m3/day for Phase 1 and will reach 80,000 m3/day upon completion of Phase 2. The total investment for Phase 1 is approximately RMB 100 million (SGD 20 million). Under the terms of the BOT contract, the minimum off-take quantity is 70% of the design capacity for Year 1 and it will be stepped up to 100% in 4 years time.

The plant will use UEL’s MBR technology and it will be built underground, similar to the 100,000 m3/day, Asia’s largest underground MBR plant at Guangzhou City which the Company completed in 2010.

Commenting on the project, Dr Lin Yucheng, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of United Envirotech Ltd said, ‘Our Guangzhou underground MBR project has become a model for urban wastewater treatment plant and we are most honoured that the same approach is adopted in Yantai, the second largest city in Shandong province. We are exploring opportunities to supply treated wastewater for re-use by the industries nearby.’ Dr Lin added, ‘This project is a follow-on of the 100,000 m3/day milestone membrane-based drinking project we secured in Yantai last year and we will continue our effort in securing more similar projects in Shandong and other parts of China.’

The project will commence immediately and Phase 1 is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2014.
