GE Named 2014 Water Company Of The Year

Recognized for its outstanding commitment and contributions to the water industry, GE (NYSE: GE) was named Water Company of the Year at the annual Global Water Awards. The award recognizes the water company that made the most significant contribution to the development of the international water sector in 2013.

GE representatives accepted the award at a dinner earlier this month in Paris, France, during Global Water Intelligence’s Global Water Summit 2014. According to the awards program, “GE Water has transformed itself … into the most formidable industrial water company in the world, positioned at the center of the water-energy nexus. … GE Water has consistently placed itself at the cutting edge of innovation right across its portfolio. No one else proved so adept at turning challenges of the water-energy nexus into opportunities for corporate water users, utilities and the environment.”

Throughout 2013, GE introduced several innovative products and provided advanced water treatment solutions for numerous projects across the globe.

Among GE’s leading offerings that were announced last year, there were many significant technology contributions including Steamate* LSA corrosion protection technology; the AG LF membrane; TrueSense* for Process, an online crude overhead monitoring system; new pressurized and submerged ultrafiltration membranes designed for pretreatment of feedwater for seawater reverse osmosis systems; and GE’s LEAPprimary, which is an innovative primary treatment technology for use with GE’s ZeeWeed* membrane bioreactor (MBR) and LEAPmbr* system.

In 2013, one of GE’s standout contracts included the commissioning of GE’s high-performance LEAPmbr technology at a wastewater treatment plant in Spain. The Procavi S.L. plant purchased the technology in order to improve water quality and increase production without the need for expansion.

Another key installation project last year included the use of GE’s ZeeWeed 500 advanced water treatment technology at a water purification plant in Italy. This Ravenna plant is currently the largest plant of its kind in Europe.

“GE works to solve the world’s most complex challenges related to water availability and quality. Our innovative team develops partnerships and delivers reliable, long-term water reuse and treatment solutions for communities, governments and industry that help our customers maximize their water and energy resources,” said Heiner Markhoff, president and CEO—water and process technologies for GE Power & Water.
