In what memsys CEO, Götz Lange, calls “a clear step towards commercialization of the company’s membrane distillation (MD) technology”, the Germany/Singapore based company has announced the formation of a Business Development Unit.
Dr Hendrik Müller-Holst has joined memsys as head of business development with responsibility for leading the company’s new market activities and establishing new customer groups. Wilson Tan joins the team as regional sales director – Asia Pacific.
The announcement follows the joint release with GE of successful results of a field test of a new vapor compressor-driven MD system used to concentrate produced water from the hydraulic fracturing process.
Müller-Holst has a PhD in process engineering and brings to his new position extensive experience in desalination and solar thermal technologies. Prior to joining memsys, he was head of technical sales at Fischer Eco Solutions GmbH, where he led the development and marketing of absorption cooling systems and thermal desalination units.
Edmund Wong, who will lead the sales team as general manager, has an MSc degree in chemical engineering and extensive experience in liquid/solid separation, membrane process technology, thermal evaporation and mechanical vapor compression distillation. Prior to joining memsys, he has held senior positions at Baker Hughes, Zenon, Hyflux, GE and Meco.
Tan is also a chemical engineer. He brings to the team more than 20 years experience as sales manager at Lurgi Bamag, US Filter, Glegg Water, GE, Zenon, Envipure and Meco.
