GE’s Power Conversion Wins Abu Dhabi Wastewater Contract

Jan. 15 (Bloomberg) -- General Electric Co.’s power conversion business won a $10 million contract to aid in the construction of the world’s largest wastewater treatment plant in Abu Dhabi, boosting its operations in the region.

The company said in a statement that it would supply eight pump drive trains, each with a power of 6.38 megawatts, as part of pumping station work that’s making up a 40-kilometer (25-mile) wastewater tunnel to collect and transport used waters generated by the city.

When the plant is fully operational in 2030, its wastewater pumps powered by GE drive trains will be able to treat as much as 70,000 cubic meters of wastewater an hour.
