Energy Recovery, Inc., the leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, recently announced total awards of $2.8 million to supply its PXTM Pressure ExchangerTM technology for desalination projects in India. The orders are expected to ship in 2016. Energy Recovery will supply its PX-Q300 Pressure Exchanger devices for the plants, which will produce up to 95,000 cubic meters of water per day. Energy Recovery estimates the PX devices will reduce the power consumption for the projects by 12.4 MW, saving over 108 GWh of energy per year, and help them avoid 64,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
Energy Recovery’s President and CEO Joel Gay stated, “As we near the end of 2016, we continue to fulfill our promise that this is a year of execution at Energy Recovery. We have committed to expanding our global reach in desalination, and these new deals in India allow us to offer our technology in a key emerging region that has a critical need for potable water. Following our recent awards in the Middle East, we continue to prove that Energy Recovery produces the world’s leading energy recovery technology.”
