Energy Recovery awarded contract worth $6.2m for desalination projects in Saudi Arabia

Energy Recovery, Inc., a leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, announced total awards of $6.2 million to supply its PXTM Pressure ExchangerTM technology for desalination projects in Saudi Arabia. The orders are expected to ship in the first half of 2018.

The company said it will supply its PX-Q300 Pressure Exchangers for multiple facilities, which will produce up to 305,000 cubic meters of water per day. Energy Recovery estimates the PX devices will reduce the facilities’ power consumption for all projects by 33.7 MW, saving over 291 GWh of energy per year, and helping the facilities avoid over 174,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

“The Middle East remains a key market for Energy Recovery and an indication of continuing strength in the global desalination market throughout 2018. Saudi Arabia has prioritised the reallocation of economic resources, with potable water and desalination of particular focus. As evidenced by this latest award, Energy Recovery is a direct beneficiary of said shift in focus and will continue to deliver our best-in-class technology and solutions throughout the global desalination market to enable customers to maximise operational efficiency while minimising total life-cycle cost,” said Joel Gay, President and CEO, Energy Recovery.

The company is an energy solutions provider to industrial fluid flow markets worldwide. Energy Recovery solutions recycle and convert wasted pressure energy into a usable asset and preserve pumps that are subject to hostile processing environments.
