The leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, today announced total awards of $4.9 million to supply its PX® Pressure Exchanger® technology for desalination projects in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Energy Recovery’s PX-Q300 Pressure Exchangers are expected to ship in Q1 of 2019 to multiple desalination facilities included in this project award.

“We expect strong results this year in our water business, which continues to provide high-efficiency energy recovery and pumping solutions to the growing seawater reverse osmosis desalination market,” said Chris Gannon, President and CEO of Energy Recovery.

“Seawater reverse osmosis desalination is critical to meeting fresh water needs in regions that experience water scarcity. In Dubai, the most populous city in the UAE, desalination meets more than 99 percent of the city’s water needs[1].”
