Energy Recovery bags deal for giant Chinese desalination plant

Energy Recovery has won a US$ 2.3 million to supply its pressure exchange technology for a 100,000 m³/d desalination plant in China.

Energy Recovery will partner in the project with Beijing Originwater Technology. It will provide its PX-Q300 Pressure Exchanger devices for the Dongjiakou desalination plant, located in Shandong province. The order is scheduled to ship during the second quarter of 2016.

Energy Recovery estimated its devices will reduce the plant power consumption by 8.5 MW, saving over 73 GWh annually and help it avoid 43,800 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

Energy Recovery’s president and chief executive officer, Joel Gay, said: “China’s marketplace is an expanding environment for our energy recovery products. We are excited to broaden our offerings in the region, and to end this year on a commanding note.”
