Sponsored by


KADIMA, ISRAEL, April 11, 2014 -- IDE Technologies was recently named a Global Water Awards category winner of the Desalination Plant of the Year for its Sorek Project -- the world's largest and most advanced seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination facility -- for its state-of-the-art technical and ecologically-sustainable achievements.

The facility provides clean water for more than 1.5 million people, or 20 percent of Israel's municipal water demand. Last year, IDE successfully completed the Israel-based Sorek plant (624,000 m3/day), which was finished ahead of schedule. Further, the plant was constructed in partnership with Hutchison Water International Holdings Pte. Limited.

The Global Water Awards honor achievements in the global water industry in categories including Desalination Company of the Year, Desalination Plant of the Year and Desalination Deal of the Year, which IDE won with its partners in 2013 for the Carlsbad Project -- the largest seawater desalination plant in the western hemisphere. IDE also received a distinction award in the category of Desalination Company of the Year; IDE earned the winning title in 2011.
