GE signed a long-term service agreement to ensure reliable wastewater treatment at Rosneft’s industrial facilities in Ufa, Russia. The company will provide advanced digital technologies to monitor filtration equipment at the plant as part of a 15-year contract.

GE Water & Process Technologies will take over maintenance responsibilities for ZeeWeed membrane bioreactors (MBR), electrodialysis reversal and reverse osmosis equipment at the facility. The service solution will leverage GE’s InSight remote water monitoring system, which combines big data and analytics to maximize performance, minimize unplanned downtime and lower operating costs.

After completion of renovations, the facility will output up to 84,000 tons of clean water per day, which is an unprecedented figure for a Russian industrial facility. ZeeWeed 500 technology separates particles, bacteria and viruses from water or wastewater.
