TACKLE THE TOUGH CUT
UNIVERSAL PIPE CUTTERS
• With different Reed blades, UPCs cut 6" to 48" (150 to 1300 mm) steel,
ductile/cast iron, clay, concrete, PVC or PE pipe in one revolution.
• Pneumatic-powered UPCs are fast, lightweight, easy to setup and use.
• UPCs only require 12" (300 mm) clearance around the pipe, provide a
square cut, and can be used underwater.

MOBILE DESALINATION UNITS
HELP BAPCO MEET BOILER
The Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) has eliminated the need to boost its
boiler feedwater requirements at its Awali refnery by tanker trucks after taking
delivery of mobile water technology from GE.
Previously, the limited in-house distillate water production from the desalination
units prompted Bapco to import water using tank trucks to fll up the shortage,
causing gridlock on refnery roads.
For the project, GE Water & Process Technologies provided Bapco a turnkey
operations and maintenance solution with a total of 13 mobile water units.
This included six mobile seawater multimedia flter containers, fve mobile
seawater reverse osmosis containers, two mobile brackish water reverse osmosis
containers and four diesel-operated electrical generators.
Bahrain is one of the most water-stressed countries in the world and will
continue to be through at least 2040, according to the World Resources Institute.
Bapco refnes more than 260,000 barrels per day of crude oil, exporting
throughout the Middle East, India, the Far East, Southeast Asia and Africa.
“GE’s mobile water solutions enabled Bapco to convert seawater into high-purity
boiler feedwater for refnery use,” said Yousif Ahmed, acting manager, power and
utilities, Bapco. “Availing mobile water solutions ensure a continual water supply
instead of relying on tank truck deliveries.”
GE’s industrial water business is expected to be rebranded as SUEZ Water
Technologies & Solutions in the coming months following the acqusition for € 3. 2
billion earlier this year. This falls in line with SUEZ’s historic strategy, after it
unifed its United Water, Degremont and SENA Waste Services under the single
SUEZ brand at the end of 2015.
