Singapore, 19 December 2018 – China Everbright Water Limited ("Everbright Water" or the "Company", SGX: U9E) (中国光大水务有限公司), an environmental protection company focusing on water environment management, is pleased to announce that the Company has secured Nanjing Pukou Pearl River Waste Water Treatment and Reusable Water Plant Project ("Pukou Waste Water Treatment and Reusable Water Plant Project") Phase II, which commands an investment of approximately RMB200 million.
Pukou Waste Water Treatment and Reusable Water Plant Project Phase II (the "Project") will be invested in, constructed and operated based on a BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) model, with a designed daily water treatment capacity of 40,000 m3 and a service area of approximately 90 km2. The Project will provide one-stop waste water treatment and reusable water services. The discharged water will comply with the Environmental Quality Standards for Surface Water (GB3838-2002) for Category IV ("Surface Water Quality Standard Category IV") (TN<10mg/L(12mg/L)), and will be used for replenishing water in the nearby rivers.
Everbright Water's Nanjing Pukou Pearl River Waste Water Treatment Plant Project Phase I and II, which have an aggregate designed daily waste water treatment capacity of 80,000 m3, commenced operations in 2010 and 2016 respectively. The discharged water complies with the national Grade 1A standard. In 2015, the Company won the bid for Pukou Waste Water Treatment and Reusable Water Plant Project Phase I, which has a designed daily reusable water capacity of 20,000 m3 and commenced operations in April 2017. The project is mainly responsible for treating part of the water discharged from the abovementioned waste water treatment plants, and the discharged water complies with the Surface Water Quality Standard Category IV.
Everbright Water's Pukou Pearl River Waste Water Treatment Plant Project Phase I and II and the Reusable Water Plant Project Phase I have been operating steadily and complying with relevant discharge standards since the projects commenced operations. Securing of the Project will undoubtedly enhance the Company's overall water treatment capacity in the Pukou District of Nanjing City and strengthen the Company's long-term close relationship with the local government and residents. This will further reinforce the Company's advantageous position in the city's water environment sector. Once the Project commences operation, it will leverage more advanced technologies to alleviate the local demands on water treatment and prevent the impact of non-attainment pollutants on the local environment and downstream water bodies.
