Italy’s De Nora bags Severn Trent’s electrochlorination arm

UK-based electrochlorination firm Severn Trent and Italy’s Industrie De Nora have agreed the sale of Severn Trent’s Water Purification business to De Nora.

The Water Purification business has operations in the US, Europe and Asia in water treatment products particularly electrochlorination, disinfection and filtration.

Since 2002, Severn Trent and De Nora have been partners in the Severn Trent De Nora joint venture specialising in electrochemical processes for water and wastewater treatment for the municipal, onshore and offshore energy and marine sectors. The joint venture is part of the transaction.

Severn Trent’s parent company recently reorganized and brought together its non- regulated businesses into a Business Services division.

The parent said the Water Purification sale will enable the management team to focus on its core water and wastewater services, which involve Operating Services US, Operating Services UK, including non-household retail and renewable energy.
