ERI providing energy-recovery in Ghana and Oman

Spanish contractor Abengoa will use Energy Recovery Inc’s pressure-exchanger technology in two desalination plants it is building in Ghana and Oman.

The PX Pressure Exchanger® will save more than 52 million kWh/year in the 60,000 m³/d Nungua project in Ghana and the 45,460 m³/d expansion to the Barka I Independent Water & Power Project in Oman.

“For small- to medium-sized projects such as Ghana to larger, mega projects like Barka I, Energy Recovery is simply the best energy-recovery device in the market providing the highest cost savings, most reliability and lowest carbon footprint,” said Carlos Cosín, CEO of Abengoa Water. “We’ve already seen extensive cost-savings across our projects with Energy Recovery and expect the same return on these two new plants.”
