Energy Recovery to supply PXTM Pressure Exchanger technology for desalination projects in China


Energy Recovery, a pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, has secured contracts worth $2.7m to supply its PXTM Pressure Exchanger technology for desalination projects in China.

The company will begin shipping the devices in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Energy Recovery will supply its PX-Q300 Pressure Exchanger devices for the plants.

These facilities will together produce up to 115,000 m3 of water per day.

According to Energy Recovery estimates, the PX devices will cut down the total power consumption for all projects by 9.1MW, thereby reducing a total of over 78.3GWh of energy per year and avoiding 46,820 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.

Energy Recovery president and CEO Joel Gay said: "These awards further solidify Energy Recovery's position as the leader in ERD technology for the desalination industry, both globally and in the critical market of China.  As we move into 2018 and beyond, we expect to see private-public partnerships, enabled by the Chinese bond connect plan, further stimulate growth in this pivotal market. 

"We remain confident that our horizontal integration into project financed initiatives such as the Prime Performance ESA, and comprehensive packaged solutions with strong industry partnerships will ideally position us to battle the stochastic nature of this market while providing our best in class Pressure Exchanger technology to customers focused on optimizing their plant operations."

Based in the Bay Area, California, Energy Recovery has offices in Houston, US; Ireland; Shanghai, China; and Dubai, UAE.
