Hitachi to partner with Veolia on overseas desalination projects

Hitachi and Veolia Water Solutions and Technologies are to cooperate on desalination projects, mainly in emerging countries.

The two companies will target seawater desalination, sewage water treatment and other water infrastructure projects in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
The partnership will accelerate the global rollout of Hitachi’s water environment solutions business.
Earlier this year, Hitachi and Veolia Water Technologies subsidiary, OTV, secured an order for a large-scale desalination plant in Basra, Iraq.
