Energy Recovery, Inc., a leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, has announced total awards of US$2.4 million to supply its PXTM Pressure ExchangerTM technology for three desalination projects in North Africa. Two of the orders will ship in the 2Q16 and the third is expected to ship in the 4Q16.

Energy Recovery will supply its Pressure Exchanger devices and pumps to the plants, which will produce up to 95 000 m3/d of water. Energy Recovery estimates the devices will reduce the power consumption for all three projects by 10.5 MW, saving over 90 GWh/y of energy, and help them avoid 54 000 tpy of CO2 emissions.

Energy Recovery's President and CEO Joel Gay stated, "We are extremely proud of our company's work in North Africa, where we continue to deploy installations of our pressure exchanger to help bolster critical water resources in the region. This continues our momentum to build our ever increasing market share among major desalination projects around the world."
