Energy Recovery receives $3 million for water projects in Egypt
Energy Recovery, Inc. a company involved in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, has announced a $3.3 million award to supply its PX® Pressure Exchanger® for a water project in Egypt.
The order is expected to ship in the fourth quarter of 2018.
Energy Recovery will supply its PX-Q300 Pressure Exchangers, which will produce up to 106,560 cubic meters of water per day. Energy Recovery estimates the PX devices will reduce the facility's power consumption by 16 MW, saving over 139 GWh of energy per year, and helping the facility avoid over 83,500 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
Energy Recovery's President and CEO Chris Gannon stated, "This and other recent awards instill further confidence in the strength of our water business through the second half of 2018 continuing into 2019. North Africaremains a key market for desalination, and thanks to the tireless efforts of our water team and the excellence of our Pressure Exchanger technology we continue to see success in both mega project and OEM awards in the region."
Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery's Vice President, Water, added, "Egyptcontinues to be a global leader in desalination and was an early adopter of Energy Recovery's technology. Since deploying our industry-leading PX Pressure Exchanger technology, which offers the lowest lifecycle costs of any energy recovery device on the market, we have successfully captured 100% mega project market share in-country with 550,000 cubic meters per day of installed capacity. We continue to track developments in regional infrastructure and are excited for the additional opportunities to support Egypt's aggressive growth strategy into the future."
