VESCON acquires Aqua und strengthens its business unit Process

The VESCON Group expands its process technology portfolio with the acquisition of Aqua (formerly Bilfinger GreyLogix Aqua GmbH). Aqua specialises in control and process control technology for drinking water and wastewater treatment plants.

The company Aqua (formerly Bilfinger GreyLogix Aqua GmbH) is part of the VESCON Group as of December 15th, 2020. In the future, the company will operate under the brand name VESCON Aqua GmbH (Aqua). Aqua is now a subsidiary of VESCON Process and strengthens the business unit with its automation and programming services for drinking water and wastewater treatment plant, mainly for customers in the public sector.

Climate change and the associated water scarcity require solutions: In this context, automation and process technology know-how for drinking water and wastewater treatment plants is becoming increasingly important. Acting sustainably in the long term, reducing energy consumption and constantly improving water quality are strategically important in our globalised world. "The drinking water and wastewater sector is one of the most important components of the German infrastructure. With the acquisition of Aqua, we are expanding our process technology know-how in future-oriented and sustainable environmental applications,” says Stefan Ruthmann, Managing Director of VESCON Process.

Aqua, headquartered in Flensburg, was founded in 1998 by Olaf Kremsier and had been part of Bilfinger SE as a subsidiary of Bilfinger GreyLogix GmbH since 2013. Aqua acts as a system integrator with a focus on project management and specialized automation and programming services.
