SUEZ Acquires GE's Water Business

General Electric today announced it completed the closing of the sale of GE Water & Process Technologies to SUEZ for $3.4 billion on September 30, 2017.

“The sale of GE Water & Process Technologies is the next step in GE Power’s business strategy and portfolio transformation,” said GE Power President and CEO Russell Stokes. “By creating a more simplified and focused business we’ll be better positioned to leverage Power’s strengths across the entire electricity value network to serve our customers and position the business for growth moving forward.”

At the end of October 2016, GE announced plans to sell its Water & Process Technologies business, in part due to the overlap of certain product lines with the Baker Hughes business. The merger of Baker Hughes and GE was officially announced on July 3, 2017.

GE Water & Process Technologies is a worldwide-leading systems and services provider for industrial clients, supplying state-of-the art water, wastewater and process systems solutions.
