At the EuroMed conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, in October 2010, those on the FEDCO booth at the exhibition were all wearing big smiles. The reason was the performance achieved by the company’s turbocharger energy-recovery device (ERD) for the Jeddah III seawater reverse-osmosis desalination project. A condition of the contract was that the ERD transfer efficiency exceeded 80%, something which had never before been achieved.
Not only did the FEDCO machine hit the target, but the company predicts it can go even higher.
