Sichuan Province China orders Modern Water equipment worth c£410,000
Modern Water is pleased to announce that it has secured the sale of its largest single order for 20 Microtrace® PDV (“PDV”) units and 7 sets of related consumables in China. The total value of the order is CNY3.56 million (c£410,000). Following a directive from the Sichuan Department of Ecology and Environment Office, the new PDV units, which measure trace metals in water, soil and food, will be used to improve the province’s emergency response to environmental emergencies and overcome a shortfall to provide comprehensive analysis on water quality.
Simon Humphrey, CEO of Modern Water, commented:
“Following the 2019 launch in China of Modern Water’s award winning Microtox LX laboratory water testing unit and the recent confirmation of the 10 industrial scale Microtox CTM units to be shipped in the 3rd quarter, yet another milestone order size and value for 20 of our new Microtrace PDV portable water contamination test units increases Modern Water’s exposure to water health and safety in China.
“All Modern Water equipment require consumables and have the option to be upgraded with AI-As-A-Service offering predictive water contamination alerts based on accumulated historical data that may contribute to increased revenue per client.”
