SUEZ Environnement has announced that it has opened a business development office in Houston, Texas to better serve existing and future clients in the petrochemical, oil and gas, and power industries. The office opening is part of SUEZ Environnement’s broader plan to bring technology solutions to water-intensive industries that are facing increasingly stringent regulatory requirements amidst resource scarcity.
Max Pellegrini, president of SUEZ Environnement’s Treatment Solutions activities in North America, believes that moving closer to clients in the Gulf Coast will give SUEZ the opportunity to better understand the issues they are facing and to craft real solutions to their local problems. With a wide array of innovative and sustainable water treatment technologies, a network of experts and operational experience in the execution of projects for the petrochemical, oil and gas, power and several other industries around the world, the SUEZ team is well positioned to offer a full solution to address the most complex industrial water challenges.
SUEZ Environnement operates industrial services in the Gulf Coast, with a fleet of specialized mobile trailers that address the short-term and emergency deionization needs of industries throughout the region. The addition of a team focused on the custom-design and supply of capital equipment will broaden the group’s footprint in the region.
SUEZ Environnement has worked extensively on numerous capital equipment projects in the Gulf Coast, notably with petrochemical giant Sasol who recently commissioned SUEZ Environnement for the design and supply of raw water and wastewater treatment systems for their new US$8.1 billion ethane cracker and derivatives complex in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Drawing upon a broad portfolio of proprietary in-house technologies like the SuperPulsator clarifier, demineralizers, condensate polishers and dissolved air flotation systems, SUEZ Environnement will custom-design four fully integrated multi-train systems that will be key components of the new facility, slated to be fully operational in 2018.
