Gradiant wins 26 new projects in Asia Pacific region

DUBAI, September 16, 2021

Gradiant, an end-to-end cleantech water treatment solutions provider, announced that it has secured 26 new projects in 2021 year-to-date (YTD) across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. 
Four of the projects will be delivered as design-build-own-operate-manage (DBOOM) contracts for long-term concession periods of up to 20 years. 
The business growth demonstrates increased demand for advanced water & wastewater treatment during the prolonged Covid-19 pandemic.
The new contracts in 2021 YTD are a mix of high-profile clients in the industrial, municipal, and government sectors, including multinational brand owners. 
Eighteen of the 26 new projects in 2021 YTD are with new clients that have selected Gradiant for the first time to solve their complex water challenges. 
New applications for Gradiant’s technologies this year have been in lithium mining, semiconductor fabrication, and high complexity industrial wastewater reuse.
"Our business has thrived this year at Gradiant, despite the challenging market dynamics brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic," remarked Prakash Govindan, the Co-Founder and COO of Gradiant. 
"We have adapted to the evolving needs of the market by taking on new clients to penetrate new strategic pandemic-resistant market segments in semiconductors, mining, and personal protective equipment (PPE)," he stated. 
According to him, facilities equipped with our SmartOps asset management and remote monitoring and control systems continue to produce mission-critical water during the Covid-related travel and access restrictions. 
Since the onset of the pandemic in early 2020 until today, Gradiant has been awarded 56 new projects, delivering a total contract value of over $514 million, stated Govindan. 
"We are proud of these accomplishments while managing through the pandemic – these results are only possible because of the commitment and passion of our team and our customers," he added.
CFO Luke Johnson said Gradiant is experiencing another year of robust growth.
"Growth remains consistently strong across our strategic market segments in semiconductors, mining, and pharmaceuticals, and our new contract wins support the market’s sustained demand for cleantech solutions and DBOOM concession agreements," he noted. 
"We have proven this year that our acquisitions of Sigma Water (Malaysia) and CRS Water (Australia) in 2020 created synergies to access new customers, applications, and geographies, when married to Gradiant’s clean water technologies and project development and financing capabilities.-TradeArabia News Service
