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

 

The PX-Q300 Pressure Exchanger, part of Energy Recovery's PX Q Series line, operates more quietly than the standard PX product line while delivering valuable energy savings to customers. Exchangers supplied to these desalination facilities will reduce power consumption for all projects by 21.7 megawatts (MW), saving over 187-gigawatt hours (GWh) of energy per year.

The energy savings are approximately equivalent to the total electricity consumed by Dubai over one and a half days.
