Emefcy Group, RWL Water form new company Fluence

Emefcy Group and RWL Water have completed their previously announced definitive merger agreement to form Fluence Corporation.

The agreement, which was initially announced in May this year, brings together latest technologies and delivery platforms to optimise treatment solutions for the water cycle.

Fluence’s products will address all segments of the water value chain, from desalination to wastewater treatment and waste-to-energy.

The comprehensive distributed water services firm will provide local and sustainable treatment and reuse solutions to businesses and communities across the globe.

Fluence CEO Henry Charrabe said: “The combination of complementary decentralised and packaged water and wastewater treatment solutions is paving the way for Fluence to emerge as the leading global provider of innovative water and wastewater solutions serving municipal, industrial and commercial markets.

“In pairing RWL Water’s proven execution capabilities and standardised solutions with Emefcy’s breakthrough technologies, Fluence operates at the forefront of the movement that is solving the world’s most pressing water challenges.”

The company will continue to serve and support all existing RWL Water and Emefcy customers and will bring the latter’s wastewater treatment technology to new clients across the globe.

Fluence executive chairman Richard Irving said: “The merger will substantially accelerate Emefcy’s deployment in China and other key markets while making significant operational and distribution gains.”

The operating and regional entities of Fluence are located around the globe, including the US, China, Australia, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Italy, France, Israel and Dubai.
