Energy Recovery awarded $4 million for desalination projects in Egypt
Energy Recovery, Inc. a provider of pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, has been awarded $4 million to supply its PX® Pressure Exchanger® technology for desalination projects in Egypt. The orders are expected to ship in the first half of 2018.
Energy Recovery will supply its PX-Q300 Pressure Exchangers for multiple desalination facilities in Egypt, which will produce up to 160,000 cubic meters of water per day.
Energy Recovery estimates the PX devices will reduce the facilities' combined power consumption by 15.6 MW, saving over 134.5 GWh of energy per year, and helping the facilities avoid over 80,400 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
Energy Recovery's President and CEO Chris Gannon stated, "These recent awards are the direct result of the dedicated efforts of our water team and an indication of Energy Recovery's continuing strength in the global desalination market. As we have emphasized in our most recent earnings call, we are laser-focused throughout 2018 on supporting and growing our desalination business and unlocking previously untapped market potential through packaged solutions and offerings like the Prime Performance Energy Services Agreement."
Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery's Vice President, Global Desalination Sales Operations, added, "We have and will continue to target Egypt as a strategic territory for Energy Recovery. The country was one of the earliest adopters of our industry-leading PX Pressure Exchanger technology with our first units in the country deployed approximately 15 years ago. Our innovative solutions put us in an excellent position to leverage Egypt's planned growth in desalination, and we will continue to support our local strategic partners and customers in the region through the tireless efforts of our Sales and Service teams."
