Siemens strengthens water services offering in European market

13.09.2010
Siemens Water Technologies is expanding its water treatment services and product offering in Europe.

The company will increase its aftermarket services and parts primarily for the oil and gas, hydrocarbon processing, chemical processing, power, food and beverage, and life science industries, and will establish two new distribution centers. Siemens is also launching its membrane cleaning program to all of Europe. Disinfection services continue to be an important offering for municipal drinking water and wastewater treatment plants as well as for aquatic applications.

With service branches currently located in Belgium, France, Germany, and the UK, Siemens Water Technologies addresses industrial and municipal customers’ concerns. The company will establish distribution centers in the UK and Belgium in 2011 for such aftermarket parts as membranes, resin, cartridge filters, and UV lamps for the industrial markets. Having two distribution centers will ensure that an adequate stock of supplies can be quickly shipped to European customers.

In addition, Siemens will launch its membrane cleaning program to the greater European market. Customers can have their reverse osmosis (RO) membranes cleaned by trained field service technicians. Membrane cleaning will extend the useful life of RO membrane modules and can even restore RO membranes to or near the original manufacturer's performance specifications. Although cleaning can be done on-site using the customer's clean-in-place (CIP) skid and standard cleaning procedures, off-site cleaning at specially equipped facilities is recommended for the best results.

Siemens Water Technologies provides service and maintenance contracts for Wallace & Tiernan disinfection systems in municipal drinking water and wastewater treatment plants and for aquatic applications like leisure centers and public swimming pools. This service includes the often legally regulated annual system checks for disinfection systems plus preventive and corrective maintenance over the total life cycle. Full-service contracts cover all maintenance costs, including wear parts. Siemens’ service team tracks the specific maintenance schedule to provide as-needed maintenance, in a timely fashion.

“Our service offering helps municipal and industrial customers keep plants online to avoid unscheduled downtime due to either equipment failure or environmental noncompliance,” said Olaf Jansen, Head of the European business for Siemens Water Technologies. “If a plant does go offline, we help restore operations to a normal state with our on-call services. And finally, while in a plant, our technicians look for ways the client can reduce its cost, increase its production reliability, or increase its production quantity.”

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
