Water Standard’s revised strategy paying off

In 2008, Water Standard announced itself as a provider of ship-based desalination and water treatment services, primarily for municipalities and industry. But two agreements announced at the end of June 2011 demonstrate how much the company has reshaped its strategy since those early days. The first signing was for a global frame agreement with Shell to develop technology and innovative water-based approaches in support of Shell’s enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects worldwide. The second was for the company to collaborate with Samsung Heavy Industries of Korea to on the design and development of vessels to deliver water treatment solutions to the offshore oil and gas sector. D&WR editor Robin Wiseman asked Water Standard’s CEO how these latest developments fit the company’s strategy. This article first appeared in the August/September 2011 issue of Desalination & Water Reuse magazine.
