GE signs 15-year service contract for water treatment and monitoring at one of Russia’s largest petrochemical plants
GE and Bashneft, a Rosneft-affiliated company, have announced the signing of a long-term service agreement to ensure reliable wastewater treatment at Rosneft’s industrial facilities in the Russian city of Ufa. Under the 15-year contract, GE will provide a comprehensive service solution featuring advanced digital technologies to monitor filtration equipment at the plant.
With this agreement, signed at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, GE Water & Process Technologies will take over maintenance responsibilities for ZeeWeed* membrane bioreactors, electrodialysis reversal and reverse osmosis equipment at the facility, extending equipment guarantees for the full life of the contract. The service solution will leverage GE’s InSight* remote water monitoring system.
GE earlier signed a contract for the supply of equipment as part of the renovation of the company’s water treatment facilities. Following completion of the project, the new system will output up to 84,000 tons of clean water per day — an unprecedented figure for a Russian industrial facility. The GE membrane bioreactor significantly improves treatment efficiency by passing water through microscopic pores, cleansing it of nearly all impurities and microorganisms.
