New Delhi: State-owned power equipment maker Bhel on Monday said it would join hands with GE India Industrial Private Limited for manufacturing water treatment equipments.
“Bhel and GE India Industrial Private Limited (GEIIPL), a 100% owned subsidiary of GE, USA will jointly engineer and supply water treatment solutions for the Indian market,” the company said in a statement.
