EDMONTON, Alberta — GE has opened a mobile water service center to better serve customers in Western Canada and the northern U.S., according to a press release.

The 15,000-square-foot mobile center will decrease response time and costs for patrons, noted the release. It will serve people who need immediate water solutions for planned maintenance, emergencies or disaster recovery.

The facility also allows GE to increase the availability of mobile equipment for reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, ion exchange and service deionization, stated the release. “All GE mobile water trailers also can incorporate InSight*, GE’s data management, remote monitoring and diagnostic platform using the power of the Industrial Internet, to monitor the performance of water and process applications at a customer location.”

“The opening of our new Edmonton mobile water service center underscores our commitment to Alberta and the Western Canadian market and the local customers we serve there. By being able to swiftly deploy our equipment and other resources to local companies, it decreases their overall cost and allows us to provide the clean water they need as quickly as possible,” said Yuvbir Singh, general manager, engineered systems — water and process technologies for GE Power & Water, in the release.

“We are especially excited to introduce our new advanced data analytics capabilities, giving customers even greater visibility into the efficiency of their operations," added Singh in the release.
