San Quintin Project Commences Construction

September 30, 2018

MELBOURNE, Australia & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 30, 2018--Fluence Corporation Limited (ASX: FLC) is pleased to announce that construction has commenced on the desalination plant in San Quintin, Baja California, Mexico.

This project, as previously disclosed, is designed to supply 5.8 million gallons/day (approximately 22,000 m 3 /day) of potable water to the San Quintin region. Fluence will recognise revenue over the 20-month expected term of the project, starting in the third quarter of 2018, as well as an estimated US$10 million of recurring billings for 30 years after the plant begins operating.

This milestone project for customer Comisión Estatal del Agua De Baja California (CEA), the State Water Commission of Baja California, is the first non-recourse project funding arranged by Fluence. Fluence will build and operate the seawater desalination plant through a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) owned by Fluence and its local partners. The SPV will produce water for the San Quintin area for the next 30 years, after which ownership and operation of the plant will be transferred to CEA.

Fluence Managing Director & CEO Henry Charrabé said: “We are pleased to reach this important milestone and commence construction on the San Quintin Project. This project showcases the exceptional project execution abilities of Fluence’s expert team. Reaching commencement now allows Fluence to start recognising significant revenue linked to the project, for which we have already incurred engineering and management costs. We look forward to delivering urgently needed fresh water to the San Quintin region by 2021.”
