GE and Bashneft, a Rosneft-affiliated company, has signed 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 (MBR), 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, which combines big data and analytics to maximize performance, minimize unplanned downtime, lower operating costs and deliver better business outcomes.
GE’s ZeeWeed 500 technology separates particles, bacteria and viruses from water or wastewater. Its unique ability to handle high peaks of solids and turbidity, combined with the highly efficient process and low energy and chemicals usage, makes it ideal for treating deteriorated or high-variation raw water sources while ensuring high-quality and stable potable water quality.
