PX energy-recovery for Hadera desalination expansion

Energy Recovery Inc’s PX Pressure Exchanger™ (PX™) devices have been selected by IDE Technologies for the expansion of its seawater reverse-osmosis desalination plant in Hadera, Israel.

IDE selected ERI’s technology as part of the initial plant design, and will rely on the devices to reduce energy consumption as the plant expands from a daily production capacity of 388,000 m³/d (102.5 MGD) to 462,000 m³/d (122 MGD) in total.

Scheduled for total capacity commissioning by 2010, the Hadera plant will be the largest operating SWRO plant in the world and will help meet Israel’s mounting demand for fresh water. An image of the plant will be on the front cover of D&WR‘s August/September magazine.
