GE Water Technologies Inc. Key Developments

GE Water Technologies Inc. Launches New Water Treatment Solution for the Beverage Industry

General Electric Company introduced BEVPAK, a new ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) solution for water treatment in the production of beverages. GE Water & Process Technologies' new, integrated UF and RO technology is designed to process poor quality and challenging source water with optimal removal of particulates, microorganisms and total dissolved solids (TDS) while reducing the footprint and lowering costs. BEVPAK technology incorporates GE's ZeeWeed 700B horizontal-designed, inside-out UF membranes with GE's BEV Series RO technology, delivering beverage producers a distinctive product that provides quality, reliability and ease of operation, smaller footprint, installation simplicity and monitoring capabilities. BEVPAK is ideal for solids tolerance and ingredient water production, and it simplifies the process and removes equipment needed for air scouring. Using SevenBore fiber technology, ZeeWeed 700B are blended polyethersulphone membranes, which allow the membrane to stay permanently hydrophilic and reduce the fouling tendency. When compared to granular filter media and cartridge filters, the ZeeWeed 700B membrane produces superior water quality and is virtually unaffected by variable raw water quality. GE's BEV Series RO technology is specifically designed for production of ingredient water for carbonated soft drinks, juices, bottled water and non-carbonated beverages. Key features of GE's new BEVPAK technology include: Multibarrier process with NSF-certified membrane elements to meet required product specifications. Materials of construction and system design to allow sanitization of ingredient water contact surfaces. UF offers higher quality feedwater to the RO, which improves reliability and increases the RO system uptime even with highly variable raw water quality. Reduce chemical cleaning frequency and membrane replacement frequency caused by fouling. Installation simplicity with preconfigured pretreatment, pumps, piping and electrical systems greatly reduce technical skill and time required for installation. Internet connectivity allows remote monitoring, after-hours diagnostics and troubleshooting. BEVPAK now is commercially available, and a few major beverage companies already have implemented the BEVPAK system at their facilities.

GE Launches OnBoard, an Integrated Service Offering for Offshore Oil and Gas Water Treatment

GE Water & Process Technologies launched OnBoard, a new service offering that is a customizable, total integrated water treatment solution and service plan for offshore oil and gas producers. OnBoard incorporates digital technologies, remote monitoring and diagnostic software, membranes, chemicals, sulfate removal technology and offshore field and process expertise to help producers improve operations, performance and profitability at offshore water treatment facilities. By simply choosing the OnBoard program parameters that match their unique needs, offshore oil and gas producers and operators have the potential to decrease clean-in-place (CIP) time, improve recovery rates and lower maintenance costs. Additional benefits to using OnBoard include an increase in sulfate removal unit recovery by up to 5%, a significant decrease in CIP hours and same-day troubleshooting. GE's InSight APM system is a standard feature in all OnBoard service packages. InSight is remote monitoring and diagnostic software that leverages advanced data and analytics to help operators make better business decisions, eliminate unplanned downtime and lower costs. It enables the collection and processing of data to visualize current conditions and their trajectory as well as diagnose problems and identify opportunities for improvement. Additional services that can be added to any OnBoard service program include process experts to review and recommend areas of improvement for both chemical and membrane solutions, field service expertise for proper on-site maintenance needs, operator training, seawater sulfate reducing nanofiltration membranes, ZeeWeed 700B hollow-fiber membranes and a full range of production and cleaning chemicals.

Consortium of GE Water & Process Technologies and Halvorsen TEC Receives the Seawater Sulfate Removal System for the Johan Castberg Project

Statoil has selected a consortium led by GE Water & Process Technologies and Halvorsen TEC to supply a complete seawater sulfate removal unit (SRU) to help protect production wells in Statoils Johan Castberg project in the Barents Sea, off Norway. Engineers from GE Water & Process Technologies and Halvorsen TEC are responsible for front-end engineering design (FEED) work in close cooperation with Aker Solutions and Statoil. Work is expected to go out in 2017, when the final investment decision for the project is planned to be carried out. This is GEs first order of its seawater sulfate removal technology for the offshore oil and gas industry and the first time GE and Halvorsen TEC have been jointly awarded a complete SRU order. However, the two companies have a long-standing business relationship and have collaborated on numerous offshore oil and gas projects. The SRU will allow Statoil to inject approximately 2,000 cubic meters per hour of seawater at less than 20 parts per million of sulfate content and less than 20 parts per billion of oxygen. The SRUs injection capacity will be 1,188 cubic meters per hour at 6 bar. The GE-Halvorsen TEC SRU package will include: GEs seawater sulfate reducing nanofilitration membranes, which eliminate nearly all sulfates from the injection seawater, remove divalent ions from the seawater to prevent barium and calcium scale formation while leaving monovalent ions like sodium and chloride to pass through the membranes. In addition to the core technologies, GE is providing the process guarantee for the entire unit as well as an OnBoard service package with remote monitoring of the entire seawater injection plant. GEs InSight remote monitoring technology combines advanced data and analytics to help operators make better business decisions, eliminate unplanned downtime and reduce operating costs. The Johan Castberg floating production, storage and offloading units SRU will benefit from GEs analytics and process experts to ensure stable and optimal performance.
