On May 31st, 2012, the U.S. Commercial Service of the American Embassy in partnership with RAJA Constanta launched the "GE Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Solutions in Romania" at RAJA Constanta’s premises. The seminar organized under the auspices of the Memornadum of Intent between the U.S. Commercial Service and Patronatul Apei featured the latest water and wastewater technologies offered by the world leader GE.
For more than a century, GE has provided sustainable solutions to help customers around the globe address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. And today their commitment, while protecting the environment, is even stronger. They are a forward-thinking and thoughtful leader in developing the water, water reuse, wastewater treatment and process solutions our customers need to meet treatment goals efficiently and effectively. With ever increasing regulatory, environmental and financial pressures on today’s municipalities, GE provides innovations in chemical and equipment technology to enhance municipalities’ efficiency and excellence in wastewater treatment and reuse, and drinking water treatment while safeguarding natural resources.
“We have identified water and energy infrastructure as key sectors vital to the Romania’s development,” said Embassy Commercial Counselor Keith Kirkham in his opening remarks. “We are interested not just because of the business opportunities that exist, but because these sectors offer great potential for the exchange of technical expertise between Romania and the United States. Through the application of leading technology, such as GE water solutions, we can contribute substantially to improving the performance and productivity of water utilities.”
The event drew a large audience made up of water utilities’ senior management, as well as specialized consulting companies across Romania who came to learn more about GE Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Solutions from GE experts. The event also benefitted from the presence of a Moldavian delegation led by the Minister of Environment Gheorghe Selaru.
