MAINBOARD-LISTED Darco Water Technologies announced on Tuesday its subsidiary, Wuhan Kaidi Water Services Co, has secured a 40.9 million yuan (S$8.5 million) contract from Tianjin SDIC Jinneng Electric Power Co.
The project entails the construction of Phase II desulfurisation zero-liquid-discharge wastewater treatment system for Tianjin Power's power generating plant in North China, using Wuhan Kaidi's proprietary brine recovery technology and the mechanical vapour recompression technology from Vacom Systems LLC.
"The successful bid of this project is of great significance to the group's strategic plan, laying a solid foundation for the future development of the Group," said Thye Kim Meng, CEO of the group.
"The contract win is also a strong endorsement to the group's capability in offering state-of-art zero liquid discharge systems," he added. "In line with the group's commitment in enhancing core competitiveness with strong technological capabilities, the group is determined to invent new technology to provide clients with cutting-edge technology."
For this project, a two-stage clarification and softening pre-treatment step is adopted, followed by liquid and solids separation via Vacom's MVR crystallisation and evaporation processes.
With no liquid discharge, the treatment process is absolutely environmental friendly and is in compliant with industry's toughest effluent regulatory requirements, while maximising water recovery to meet water reuse targets.
The project is expected to be completed and delivered by Dec 31, 2016. It is expected to have a positive material impact on the revenue of the group for the financial year ending Dec 31, 2016.
