Xylem Wins Ozone Contract in China
Contract to provide WEDECO ozone treatment system for one of the largest districts in Shanghai
Xylem Inc. has announced that it has won a contract worth RMB 11.48 million ($1.87 million) to provide an ozone generation and introduction system to help ensure a safe municipal water supply in the Jinshan district of Shanghai.
"We are honored to have been chosen to help provide high-quality and safe potable water for the Jinshan district in Shanghai," said Shuping Lu, vice president and country director for Xylem China. "This contract is a meaningful example of how Xylem's reliable and efficient technology is supporting urbanization in the region, as it is the largest ozone contract in China to date."
Xylem will provide its WEDECO-branded ozone generation and introduction system as well as the accompanying accessories. The company will also provide Xylem's integrated service package—TotalCare—for the Jinshan First Water Plant, which has a capacity of 400,000 tons of water per day and serves the entire Jinshan district, one of the largest districts in Shanghai.
Located on the southwest coast of Shanghai, the Jinshan district has an area of 379 sq miles, a 14-mile coastline and a permanent population of 730,000. As the city of Shanghai has grown, Jinshan has experienced rapid changes, evolving from a relatively rural area to a more crowded suburb with an industrial zone, requiring a more reliable and efficient water treatment system.
