Experienced desalter John Tonner is joining Consolidated Water Co Ltd as chief operating officer from 1 September 2011.
Tonner, who is on D&WR‘ s editorial board, is currently president and a partner of Water Consultants International, a leading desalination consultancy, where he is responsible for global business development.
Through his work in the desalination and water treatment industry since 1985, Tonner has broad practical and engineering experience involving all commercially viable desalination processes, and he frequently assesses the potential for new technologies to overcome the challenges limiting current processes. A past member of the board of the International Desalination Association, he regularly advises clients on how their processes, components, materials or technology can be applied to various regional and technological markets and the environmental challenges within the desalination industry.
“We are very pleased that John is coming on board,” stated Rick McTaggart, president and CEO of Consolidated Water. “John started his career in desalination with the company in the mid-1980s. He has been involved in the engineering of some of the world’s largest and most technically advanced seawater desalination projects, along with the development and patenting of reverse-osmosis energy-recovery technology.”
“We are confident that John will play a very important role as our company pursues new project opportunities and its overall growth objectives in coming years,” McTaggart added.
