Romania, a success story in the water treatment sector
The Romanian subsidiary of "Vivendi Water", "Appa Nova Bucharest", selected Schneider Electric Romania to supply electrical distribution and industrial control equipment, for a total value of 3.2 million euros.
This is a major breakthrough in the water sector for Schneider Electric's Romanian subsidiary, which has just signed three successive contracts with "Appa Nova Bucharest", valued at 3.2 million euros.
"Appa Nova Bucharest" was founded by "Vivendi Water", a subsidiary of Vivendi Environnement, specializing in water management. This company is a utility company for the water production, purification and distribution network for the city of Bucharest (population 2 million) for a period of 25 years. This company treats 600,000 cubic meters of water daily and there are plans for Appa Bucharest to invest close to 100 million euros during the next two years to develop and modernize its installations.
The key factors of success can be summarized in the three following points:
> The wide range of products and solutions offered by Schneider Electric, meeting control and electrical distribution requirements for the entire water cycle,
> Experienced and very professional local partners (installers, panel-builders and systems integrators);
> A relationship of trust with the customer, reinforced by an extensive list of references in the field of water and other industries across the Romanian market.
