It’s used by consultants, manufacturers and operators to optimise water plant design and operation. Translated into Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish, the software is now available in Chinese. Updating and translating it into Chinese is the culmination of a two-year project by international sales manager David Golding and KS Boo, director of Genesys Pacific in Singapore.

The Chinese government has pledged to improve water quality before the Beijing 2008 Olympics and the RO market is expected to grow rapidly. Genesys also has trained and appointed several distributors in China to capitalise on the opportunities.
