Tri-Tech Holding Announces $1M in Remote Monitoring System Upgrade Work at 16 Sewage Pumping Stations in Tianjin, China
Beijing, China – December 1, 2009 – 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 approximately $1 million in automatic control system upgrade work for a total of 16 sewage pumping stations located in two economic development zones in Tianjin, China: (i) seven pumping stations in the Western Tianjin Economic Development Area (TEDA) and (ii) nine pumping stations in the Tianjin Airport International Logistics Zone (TAILZ).
For the Tianjin Economic Development Area (TEDA) contract, Tri-Tech will procure and install equipment for the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (SCADA), data transmission system and monitoring system, field equipment, and large screen display system. With the new system, Tri-Tech will integrate into the existing system, meeting all specifications of the new remote monitoring systems. Tri-Tech expects to complete this project by the end of March 2010.
For the completed Tianjin Airport International Logistics Zone (TAILZ) project, which commenced in June of this year, Tri-Tech procured equipment for the automatic control system, instrumentation system, remote television monitoring system, and the real-time data relay system using China Mobile’s 3G wireless network. In addition, Tri-Tech conducted equipment installation, system commissioning, operator training service and optimization of the automation system.
All the remote monitoring systems for these 16 sewage pumping stations are designed to be extensible for new pumping station automatic control systems to be added.
Tri-Tech CEO Warren Zhao said, “We are excited to win the 7-pumping-station auto-control system upgrade contract immediately following the completion of the 9-pumping-station project. The nine pumping stations in Tianjin Airport International Logistics Zone were the first batch of stations to use an advanced 3G network for data communication in China. This network control and operational scheduling improves management and maintenance of sewerage networks, decreases the inefficiency of manual control, and cuts wastewater treatment costs resulting from a redundant workforce and high energy consumption.”
“With the rapid economic growth of these two zones and China’s increasing investment in environmental infrastructure and construction retrofitting, Tri-Tech is showcasing our competitive advantages to target additional business opportunities in this sector,”Zhao said.
