Energy Recovery lands $3.96mn Qurayyat contract
Hyflux orders pressure exchanger devices for the IWP in Oman.
Energy Recovery has announced a $3.96mn contract to install its PX Pressure Exchanger® technology in the new Qurayyat IWP under construction in Oman.
The US-based specialist signed the deal with Hyflux, the Singaporean firm developing the 200,000 cubic metre per day desalination plant.
Energy Recovery estimates the PX-Q300 Pressure Exchanger devices will reduce plant power consumption by 20 MW and save 173 GWh of energy per year.
This is the fourth collaboration between Energy Recovery and Hyflux, including the 500,000 cm/d Magtaa desalination plant in Algeria which started production last year.
Joel Gay, President and CEO for Energy Recovery, said: “This is the fourth mega project that Energy Recovery has worked on with Hyflux, and we are proud to consistently win larger scale projects from our existing customers.
“We have announced over $14 million in larger project orders to date in 2015, which is well ahead of our run rate at this time last year.
“We understand that larger projects are largely dependent on the timelines of our customers, however we are increasingly optimistic with the direction of the desalination market thus far this year and pleased that our market position with our long-term customers has remained sound.”
