KADIMA, ISRAEL, AND SANTIAGO, CHILE, Feb. 20, 2014 -- On Tuesday, Feb. 18, IDE Technologies, a global provider of water treatment solutions, announced its expansion in the Latin American water industry with its new office in Chile.

Chile is the world's leading producer of copper, and with the expansion of new mines, there is an increased need for water in areas with water scarcity. By increasing its presence in Chile, which has a strong economy and high external investment rate, IDE is set to help meet this need through projects that desalinate seawater on the coast and pump the water to the mining operation.

IDE has appointed Rodrigo Turra as the Country Sales Director. Turra brings 18 years of management and business development experience in the water industry, which he will leverage to increase awareness and sales throughout Latin America for small-to-large-scale membrane and thermal desalination solutions as well as its industrial water treatment solutions.

Prior to joining IDE, Turra was the business development manager at Seven Seas Water, managing the development of build-own-operate (BOO) and build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) new business in Chile. In addition, he was senior account manager of GE Power & Water, where he was responsible for maintaining existing business as well as generating new opportunities.
