GE and Osmoflo enter into strategic alliance

Wednesday, 07 September, 2011

GE, a global leader in water and process technologies, and Osmoflo, the largest Australian-owned desalination and water recycling company in Australia, have entered into a strategic alliance. The agreement will enable Osmoflo to expand its product portfolio and allow GE to expand its presence in the Australian water market.

The alliance will allow Osmoflo to focus on markets and applications where GE’s standard platform of reverse osmosis (RO) membrane plants and electrodeionisation (EDI) skids provide a unique advantage in the sub-2.5 megalitres per day (ML/d) range. GE packaged systems are suitable for non-complex applications involving the desalination of brackish water or seawater using reverse osmosis technology and EDI for high-purity water requirements.

The agreement will also give Osmoflo access to the broad range of GE products such as cartridge filters, RO, ultrafiltration (UF) membranes and other technologies for water treatment systems. Osmoflo will utilise GE technology and customise water treatment solutions to address customer-specific applications and will provide on-going maintenance and operations support through its 24-hour national support service.

In Australia, GE will continue to focus on build-own-operate (BOO) mobile water services and providing comprehensive solutions for tough-to-treat waters including coal seam gas and wastewater re-use with advanced technologies including membrane bioreactors (MBRs) and zero liquid discharge systems using evaporators and crystallisers.
