The expansion is designed to support the company’s growth in the Middle East.
 
Xylem, which already has a presence in the United Arab Emirates and Lebanon, is also expanding its dewatering capabilities in the region.
 
“In the last year, we increased our capabilities in the Middle East so that we can provide what we call integrated treatment solutions,” said Mike Kuchenbrod, president of Xylem’s Water Solutions business. “What this means is that we can help customers achieve optimum wastewater treatment system performance by combining our extensive process knowledge and controls capability with the world-class, biological treatment, filtration and disinfection technologies in our portfolio.”
 
“We have expanded our dewatering or water removal capabilities in the region and now offer a rental fleet that includes the two leading drainage pump brands in the world – Flygt and Godwin – together with Xylem services to provide complete dewatering solutions in the Middle East,” said Kuchenbrod.
 
Xylem has a global dewatering rental fleet of 20 000 products, including diesel-driven, self-priming Godwin pumps and Flygt submersible electric pumps.
