The ambition of SUEZ in a fast-growing industrial market is to strengthen its position as an environmental backstop.
More and more companies in all sectors are making a commitment to reduce their impact, and they need long-term solutions to help them keep their promises.
Strengthening commercial momentum with stand-out industrial solutions
SUEZ offers a very wide choice of products and services that cover the whole range of industrial water needs (water treatment equipment and systems, digital solutions for resource optimisation, equipment monitoring and maintenance and data analysis) and the circular economy (solutions for eco-design and material and energy recovery) for waste in the construction, materials, energy, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, mining and metallurgy, pulp and paper, food and oil and gas markets.
The Group aims to develop its industrial solutions in its traditional areas of services for local authorities, enabling the emergence of ecosystems with a positive environmental impact. The Shanghai industrial park where SUEZ provides water cycle management and
hazardous waste treatment and recovery based on a circular economy model illustrates this strategy: designated as a pilot site in the petrochemical sector by the Beijing government, SCIP will be replicated across the country.
WTS: average growth prospects of 5% between 2018 and 2020
The 2018 growth of +6.7% in the revenue of WTS (Water Technologies & Solutions, emerging from the acquisition of GE Water & Process Technologies) and the synergies it has created ($30 million compared with a forecast of $25 million) consolidates relations with key accounts: the industry now represents 43% of the SUEZ Group s revenue.
The prospects for development are many, especially in high-added-value market segments such as the microelectronics sector. The extended range of membrane technologies to optimise low-capacity wastewater treatment plants and mobile solutions mounted on trailers are solutions for which SUEZ stands out in the industrial market.
