Bapco picks GE MBR system
Manama, June 13, 2012
Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) has chosen GE to design and supply a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) system for its oil refinery wastewater treatment plant in Sitra.
The project and the GE-supplied advanced water treatment technology will support Bapco's environmental leadership efforts to achieve the stringent wastewater quality levels specified by the General Directorate of Environment and Wildlife Protection regulation for wastewater discharge.
'Bapco is committed to managing its precious water resources wisely,' said A Jabbar A Karim, the acting general manager for major engineering projects.
'With this project, GE is supporting us to realise our goals of minimising the environmental impact from our refining operations, while safeguarding the refinery's capital equipment at the same time,' he added.
'The Bapco wastewater treatment plant is another example in GE's long history of supporting customers in Bahrain with innovative energy technology - in this case, advanced water solutions - to meet their toughest operational challenges,' said GE Energy for the Middle East chief executive Joseph Anis.
'We are committed to delivering advanced solutions that increase the supply of clean water and meeting the environmental commitments for the expansion of Bahrain's economy,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
