ITT Industries´ Flygt Books Record Order for China Wastewater Plant

23.11.2001

SHANGHAI, China, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- ITT Industries, Inc. (NYSE: ITT) will play a critical role in the construction of the new wastewater treatment plant in Shaoxing, a city of one million people on China's east coast, about 250 km south of Shanghai. ITT's Flygt unit has received a record order for 195 submersible mixers, plus all of the control equipment for the units.

The

plant, which will be able to handle 300,000 tons of waste per day, is the

first wastewater treatment plant in Shaoxing, and will be built at a total

cost of US$60 million. The order is Flygt's largest single order to date for

mixers.

"Flygt China has broad experience in this arena, having won orders for the

Beijing Gaobeidian sewage treatment plant, the largest in Asia, and the

Zhengzhou sewage treatment plant, which was our largest order to date," says

Peter Mui, Sales & Marketing Director. "This latest order helps our position

to capitalize on this growing market for wastewater treatment and related

equipment. We are helping to meet the global need for innovative fluid

handling technology that plays a key role in preserving the world's fresh

water."

The delta area of the Yangtze River on China's east coast is one of that

country's most developed areas. Shaoxing's major industries include chemical

fiber printing and dyeing, clothing and wine production. With no existing

wastewater treatment plant, the water has been discharged directly into to the

Yangtze River and then onto the East China Sea. The local government has

taken the decision to build a wastewater treatment plant to tackle this

problem.

ITT Industries employs more than 7,000 people in nine facilities across

China, producing electronic components such as connectors, switches and

keypads, and a variety of pumps for industrial and municipal markets.

ITT Industries' Flygt (http://www.flygt.com) is the world's leading

manufacturer and supplier of submersible pumps, mixers and aeration systems.

The products are used in water and wastewater plants, for irrigation, in

construction projects, in mines and in the process industry. Flygt has

37 wholly or partly owned sales companies located in more than 130 countries.
