Siemens acquires water company

Siemens is to expand its water treatment business in China with its acquisition of CNC Water Technology, Beijing for an undisclosed price. CNC is a system integration company specialising in industrial filtration applications.

‘The corporation has a very solid reputation in the Chinese water market’, said Roger Radke, head of Water Technologies, a division of the Siemens Group Industrial Solutions and Services (I&S).

‘With the acquisition we can combine Siemens’ water treatment products and systems with CNC´s leadership position in large water treatment and seawater desalination projects in China, to dramatically develop the world’s potentially largest and fastest growing market.’

Since 2002, CNC has executed some of the largest projects in China for seawater desalination, industrial wastewater and municipal water treatment. It provides services for industries including petrochemicals, refining, power generation, and steel production
