United Envirotech Ltd wins RMB250 million membrane bioreactor EPC contract with Bishui Lantian Water
United Envirotech Ltd has announced that it has been awarded a RMB 250 million engineering procurement and construction (EPC) project from Bishui Lantian Water Co. Ltd in Gaoyang County, Baoding City, Hebei Province, China.
The project is to construct a 60,000 m3/day underground membrane bioreactor plant to treat textile wastewater from a textile industrial park in Gaoyang. The new MBR plant is the phase 3 expansion of an existing 140,000 m3/day wastewater treatment plant serving the industrial park.
Gaoyang is a major textile centre in Hebei province. The textile industrial park has been expanding since it was first constructed in 2006. MBR technology is selected for phase 3 because of its advantages of small footprint, and excellent treated water quality which is not only able to meet Grade 1A discharge standard, but also meeting standards for water reuse. The underground design will further reduce the area occupied by the MBR plant, freeing up valuable land.
In addition, the Company has signed a framework agreement with the parent company of BSLT, Hebei Hongrun New Material Co. Ltd (Hongrun), to set up a joint venture to collaborate on future projects on wastewater treatment plant upgrading, recycling, supply of steam and the acquisition of its existing water treatment assets. With an asset value of RMB 2.8 billion, Hongrun is a textile conglomerate with business interest in textile and dyestuff, environmental protection, property development, commodity trading and financing.
The project will commence immediately and is expected to be completed by end 2014.
