Energy Recovery (NASDAQ: ERII) today announced a collection of contracts totaling nearly $17 million to supply PX® Pressure Exchanger® energy recovery devices for desalination facilities in the Gulf region. These PX devices are expected to prevent over 400,000 metric tons of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere each year, the equivalent of removing over 85,000 passenger cars from the road each year.
These contracts include a municipal desalination facility that will produce over 500,000 cubic meters per day (132 million gallons) to a significantly water stressed region. These facilities mark a major milestone in addressing the region’s critical water scarcity challenges and reinforcing sustainable water security. By adopting competitive and efficient seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination technology, including hundreds of PX devices, these facilities will also contribute to ongoing efforts in the region to reduce the cost of water. The facilities are for both municipal and industrial applications and the orders are expected to be fulfilled by Q4 2023.
“Energy Recovery continues to be a trusted provider of energy savings solutions for the desalination industry,” said Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery’s Senior Vice President of Water. “Our customers rely on our expertise in producing high-quality devices to support desalination projects of all sizes across many different industries. In the Gulf region alone we have more than 200 references producing well over 15 million cubic meters per day of drought-proof fresh water.”
The PX can reduce energy consumption in SWRO desalination by as much as 60% and is trusted around the world to provide reliable service in mega desalination plants. The PX provides the lowest life cycle cost of any energy recovery device available on the market, providing significant savings to plant operators and bringing down the cost of clean water.
