Xylem to open Saudi office soon

Water technology manufacturer Xylem Inc announced on 16 January 2013 at the International Water Summit in Abu Dhabi that it will open a new office in Saudi Arabia in the coming months, as well as up to three additional offices in other key regional markets later this year.

This expansion is to support the company’s growth in the Middle East resulting from the development of its water and wastewater treatment offering to address pressing reuse and desalination challenges. The company is also expanding its dewatering capabilities in the region.

Xylem also launched its award-winning wastewater pumping solution, Flygt Experior, for customers in the Middle East offering up to 50% in energy savings compared with conventional wastewater pumps.

Making its debut in the Middle East market is Xylem’s new open channel ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system, called Wedeco Duron. This UV disinfection system delivers clean, safe treated wastewater of the highest standard using a minimum of energy and eliminates the need for chemical-based disinfection.
