De Nora Acquires Severn Trent's Water Purification Business
De Nora announces the completion of the acquisition of the Water Purification group of Severn Trent Services. The new business line, called De Nora Water Technologies, will be focused on delivering sustainable and innovative water and wastewater technologies for municipal, marine and energy related water treatment applications.
De Nora Water Technologies, together with Ozono Elettronica Internazionale, a global leader in ozone technologies acquired in May, will be integrated into the De Nora business. De Nora customers and partners will now have access to a full range of disinfection solutions for water and wastewater treatment spanning gas feed, chlorine dioxide, ultraviolet, electrolytic and ozone disinfection from the world’s best known brand names such as Capital Controls, SEACLOR, ClorTec and OMNIPURE in addition to the award winning TETRA and UAT filtration lines.
According to Lawrence Quinn, CEO of De Nora Water Technologies, “De Nora Water Technologies now has one of the most complete lines of technological solutions in the industry. The combination of the expertise and solutions will provide for almost any water and wastewater disinfection need, giving us a tremendous competitive advantage in the markets we serve. And our full range of technologies will certainly strengthen our hand when it comes to entering emerging and fast-growing markets such as China, Brazil and India, where the De Nora group is already well established.”
“The completion of this acquisition, and the creation of the De Nora Water Technologies business line as part of a Group of almost €0.5bn in turnover, represents an exciting time for De Nora.” Stated Paola Dellachà, Chief Executive Officer of De Nora, “We are fully committed to leveraging the expertise from De Nora as a technological pioneer and from the Severn Trent Water Purification side as experts in water treatment applications with a strong history of reliable and reputable products, to meet our vision as a world leader in this field.”
“Electrolytic technologies for the on-site generation of sodium hypochlorite from seawater or brine, will experience especially big benefits as a result of the new set-up; there will be an even closer collaboration to improve the performance and the competitiveness of SEACLOR, CECHLO, OMNIPURE, ClorTec, SANILEC and BALPURE. The exclusive access to De Nora’s proprietary self-cleaning electrodes for ballast water applications is certainly a unique feature that only De Nora Water Technologies can offer to this growing need of the marine industry” said Luca Buonerba, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer of De Nora.
