ATLANTA, Oct. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Nocera, Inc. www.nocera.company (OTC: NCRA) a provider of design, build, and installation services of aquaculture (fish farm) equipment is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Project Contract for 400 Recirculating Aquaculture System ("RAS") tanks in Kaili, Guizhou province, China with Dongguan CIMC Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd ("DG CIMC"). The anticipated value of the tanks to be produced and delivered is approximately $5.7 million US dollars based upon current foreign currency exchange rates.
Kaili is a city located in southwestern Guizhou province. It is the center of Miao culture, hosting more than 120 festivals every year. Guizhou is a landlocked province in southwestern China. It is currently estimated that the population of Guizhou is approximately 35 million people.
Currently, we are pending the initial advance payment before we start manufacturing the 400 tanks. We expect the initial payment will be received in Q4 of 2019 and expect to complete the production of the 400 tanks during the 2nd quarter of 2020.
Yin-Chieh "Jeff" Cheng, Chief Executive Officer, Nocera stated, "We are very pleased with the contract agreement. This is a substantial movement in the right direction and continues our production and delivery of RAS tank systems to Chinese fish farms. China introduced its new clean water policy in 2017, resulting in the removal of all fish farms in public waters, including lakes and rivers. As a result, Chinese fish farm operators have been forced to move to tank based fish farms in order to sustain production. In 2018, we produced and delivered 473 tank systems to our Chinese customers. We expect that the long term demand over the next several years in China to be more than 10,000 systems, and more than 16,000 systems worldwide."
