SAN LEANDRO, California – US firm Energy Recovery has secured $3 million of projects to supply its pressure exchanger technology to unnamed locations in Europe.
The company will supply its PX-Q300 and PX-Q260 Pressure Exchanger devices for the plants, replacing existing turbine technology.
A total of up to 133,000 m3/day will be produced using the technology.
Energy Recovery estimates the PX devices will reduce power consumption for all projects by 2.5 MW, saving over 21.4 GWh of energy per year, and helping the plants avoid more than 12,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
The orders are expected to ship in the second half of 2017.
CEO Joel Gay, who featured in WWi’s Top 25 Industry Leaders, said: “We will continue to aggressively attack the brownfield retrofit market, targeting plants with legacy solutions thereby continuing to grow our share of the desalination wallet and execute against our long term strategy.”
At the end of last year Energy Recovery secured $5.5 million to supply its pressure exchanger technology to India and the Middle East.
