October 14, 2010 – Matrix, a division of Aqua-Chem, Inc., recently announced that it has concluded negotiations with and received the final order from the Russian Central Government for a sea water membrane system installed within the Federation.

Matrix is a company in providing MicroUtility infrastructure including reverse osmosis systems for marine and land-based applications around the world.

David Gensterblum, CEO of Aqua-Chem, Inc., stated that his team has successfully performed on the Phase One contract and has just been awarded the Phase Two expansion to 10,000 m3/Day (2.64 million US GPD) of the turnkey open sea potable water system. “According to Russian sources, our installation may be the largest SWRO drinking water system in Russia to date and will provide the benchmark for future regulation and development. We are delighted to work with the Russian Federation on this major installation. Water development projects will be a major focus of both governments and global corporations over the next two decades, and the Federation’s foresight in moving aggressively on an installation of this size demonstrates the potential of the market.”

Aqua-Chem acquired Matrix in October 2008 and has since invested in its technological and marketing resources. Gensterblum noted, “The strategic acquisition of the Matrix team combined with the global footprint of Aqua-Chem has proven to be a winning combination.”

Matrix, a Division of Aqua-Chem, Inc., was founded to provide MicroUtility infrastructure including reverse osmosis desalination systems for marine and land-based applications.

Aqua-Chem is a company in evaporation and reverse osmosis technologies and water pretreatment and distribution equipment.
