Energy Recovery wins Saudi solar deal

Industrial fluid pressure technology specialist, Energy Recovery, has won a US$ 1.4 million deal to supply its PX pressure exchanger technology for the world's first large-scale solar-powered desalination plant.

Energy Recovery will supply its PX-Q300 pressure exchanger devices for a solar driven plant in Saudi Arabi that will produce fresh water at 60,000 m³/d. Energy Recovery said its PX equipment will reduce the plant's electrical load by some 8.4 MW, saving over 73 GWh a year

Energy Recovery's president and chief executive officer, Joel Gay, said, "Our PX pressure exchanger technology continues to play a crucial role in desalination processes, even as plant designs evolve, which increases my confidence that our technology will remain critical to this industry for a long time to come."

Energy Recovery anticipates that the order will ship during the first quarter of 2016 and the plant will be operating by the first quarter of 2017.
