Pall wins Qatar water treatment project
Doha, January 28, 2012
Pall Corporation, a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, said it has won a major contract to supply water treatment solutions for Qatar Petroleum’s premier Ras Laffan Emergency and Safety College.
The Ras Laffan college, located on approximately 250 acres, was created to serve emergency responders throughout the Mena region.
Managed by the Texas Engineering Extension Services under an agreement with state-owned Qatar Petroleum, the high-profile facility offers training equipment for industrial, HazMat, municipal, rescue and emergency medical services.
The deal was awarded by contractor SEG(Société d'Entreprise & de Gestion) of Qatar, said a senior official.
“Pall is thrilled to be involved in this high-profile project,” said Hussein Barazi, director, Pall Middle East.
“Our ability to effectively address the multi-faceted fluid management needs of organizations in the region with advanced solutions is one of the reasons Pall’s presence in the Middle East continues to grow.”
Pall, he said, provides fluid management solutions and high-quality products for the most demanding applications, from oil and gas and power generation to pharmaceuticals and water treatment.
Pall Aria systems are used for a range of desalination and municipal and industrial water applications. The high-efficiency, low-waste systems are easy to install and operator-friendly, resulting in lower labor and operational costs.
Steve Connor, technical project director at SEG, said “Pall was selected for this project because it offers advanced membrane technology in a very small footprint.”
“Equally important was Pall’s ability to provide a complete custom water management solution and dedicated engineering support from a local office,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
