SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — October 17, 2019 — Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII) today announced it will supply its PX® Pressure Exchanger® devices, along with related equipment and services, to three large-scale desalination facilities in the Middle East. The devices are expected to ship in Q1 and Q3 of 2020.

The $12.2M award includes a desalination facility that will support the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Qatar. The country expects to host approximately 1.5 million visitors for the World Cup, which represents more than half the country’s current population of 2.7 million.

“As the Middle East prepares for the 2022 World Cup, we’re proud that our technology can help meet the region’s water needs and enable our customers to produce this critical resource in a more cost effective and sustainable way,” said Energy Recovery President and CEO Chris Gannon. “The desalination industry is experiencing a growth cycle that we now see extending further than we anticipated just a few years ago. Against the backdrop of this explosive growth, we are focused on executing against our historically strong backlog and pipeline and investing to grow our Water business.”

Energy Recovery estimates the PXs supplied to these facilities will prevent more than 400,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year. The facilities will collectively produce over 700,000 cubic meters of water.

“We continue to win large-scale SWRO desalination projects in territories across the Middle East,” shared Energy Recovery Vice President of Water Rodney Clemente. “Our value proposition is centered around our ability to deliver the strongest economic benefit to our customers by having the lowest life cycle cost of any energy recovery solution available on the market today. With extremely predictable and reliable performance, unmatched durability and longevity, and our industry leading uptime advantage, our PX Pressure Exchanger continues to set the gold standard for ERDs serving the global SWRO desalination space.”
