Tri-Tech Wins Build-Transfer Contract for Upgradation of Wastewater Treatment Plant

Tri-Tech Holding Inc. (Nasdaq: TRIT), a premier Chinese company that engineers, manages and monitors municipal sewer systems, natural waterways and other water resources, announced today that it has received a $2 million Build-Transfer (BT) contract for a wastewater treatment plant upgrade in Xinle City, Hebei province.

Tri-Tech will upgrade the plant and transfer ownership to Xinle City. The upgrade will improve the effluent quality from Class 2 to Class 1A standards as per the National Discharge Standard of Pollutants for Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The Xinle wastewater treatment plant went into operation in 2003 and currently has a daily capacity of 40,000 metric tons. Reclaimed wastewater discharged from the treatment plant meets Class 2 standards. The upgrade work will further decrease the pollution discharged from the plant.

The project will add an enhanced processing system, with a world-class process combination of a biological aerated filter (BAF), a rapid filter and chlorine dioxide disinfection. The enhanced processing system includes a new pumping station, a disinfecting tank, a chlorination processing system, a forced draft blower, counter-washing pumping equipment and a power supply system.

The contract covers detailed engineering and design, process equipment procurement, installation, commissioning & start-up. The effluent discharged from the upgraded plant will meet Class 1A standards which is suitable for certain reuses, including roadway dust control, landscape irrigation and toilet flushing. Tri-Tech expects to complete construction by the end of February 2010.

Tri-Tech CEO Warren Zhao said, "We are pleased to land this upgrade project in Xinle City using the BT model. With the rapid economic growth in Xinle, the amount of industrial wastewater and municipal wastewater is increasing. However, wastewater treatment facilities have not kept pace with the growth. Inappropriately treated wastewater has severely polluted the surrounding canal and downstream rivers. The need to upgrade Xinle's existing wastewater treatment plant is urgent. The implementation of this project will reduce urban sewage pollution and improve Xinle city's ecological environment and water quality."
