"Pörner Water": New competence center for water treatment at Pörner Group

On March 1, 2020, the Pörner Group expanded its portfolio for sustainable processes with the business area for water treatment engineering in the oil and gas industry. The new ‘Pörner Water’ competence center adds industrial water treatment to Pörner’s range of services - from the concept study to the implementation of entire projects and predictive maintenance.

Sustainability with water treatment at Pörner

Pörner created a new competence center on March 1, 2020 for more sustainability in dealing with one of the most important resources on earth, water. The experts for water treatment, who previously worked for Siemens, have now been integrated into the new ‘Pörner Water’ division of the Pörner Group led by Dr. Robert Vranitzky.

The engineers have in-depth process know-how and competence for industrial water treatment as well as many years of experience in project management and execution of international projects.


Accumulated water competence

Over the past decades, the team has planned, executed and successfully commissioned a large number of industrial water treatment plants in Europe, Central Asia and selected countries in Africa. The portfolio ranges from water treatment plants in the oil production (upstream) for deoiling of produced water to the treatment of process water in refineries (down-stream).

While the treatment scheme for produced water treatment primarily consists of flotation units followed by special media filters (walnutshell filters), the entire technology spectrum of process water treatment is applied in downstream installations.

In addition, numerous innovation projects for new technology applications in water treatment for the oil and gas industry were implemented and customers were supported in the digital transformation.


Maintenance over the entire life cycle

Pörner's service in the field of water treatment goes beyond the commissioning of plants – with service and preventive maintenance for the accomplished plants. The aim of this “life cycle service” is the long-term preservation of the value of the plants and their maximum availability.



Considering the growing shortage of fresh water resources and increasing environmental requirements, water treatment and the use of water in closed cycles become more and more important. With the new water competence center, Pörner can support its process industry customers even better in order to sustainably minimize energy and water consumption and emissions of their plants.

The expertise from the implementation of complex water treatment systems with multi-stage processes enables Pörner to offer tailored project solutions to the industry. This knowledge is continuously extended in cooperation with the leading suppliers of special water technologies and treatment systems (OEMs - Own Equipment Manufacturer).

The ‘Pörner Water’ team takes up its work to realize complete projects integrating all engineering disciplines and according to Pörner's tried and tested execution methods - from one hand and from a single source.
