Pressure energy company Energy Recovery Inc has won contracts totalling $4.2 million to supply its technology to multiple desalination projects in the Asia Pacific region.
Energy Recovery will supply its devices, including its PX Pressure Exchanger, for multiple seawater reverse osmosis plants, which will collectively produce up to 200,000 m3/day.
The project locations or clients were not disclosed by the company.
Energy Recovery estimates its technology will reduce power consumption for the combined projects by 23 MW, saving over 200 GWh of energy per year.
As a result, due to the reduced power requirements, approximately 120,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions can be saved per year when operating at full capacity, the company said.
Joel Gay, president and CEO of Energy Recovery, said: “While Energy Recovery has recently expanded into new markets in upstream oil and gas and downstream gas processing, the water desalination market continues to be a core segment of the business. With significant new investments being made globally in the desalination industry, it is a market where we expect to see further growth and continued Energy Recovery leadership.”
