SAN LEANDRO, CA – August 25, 2020 – Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII) today announced contracts totaling $4.7 million, including an award to supply PX® Pressure Exchanger® devices (“PX”) to the largest floating desalination project in the world.

“Our pressure exchanger technology enables our customers to achieve maximum efficiency and energy savings in producing clean water, even in the most challenging environments around the globe,” said Robert Mao, Energy Recovery Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As fresh water demands continue to grow, Energy Recovery and our industry-leading PX will be there to meet these needs and empower our customers to produce potable water at a lower cost and with less energy.”

The project consists of three floating desalination stations with a cumulative water production capacity of 150,000 cubic meters per day (“m3/day”). The project is expected to be operational by the end of 2020 and will supply water to the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (“SWCC”), a Saudi government corporation responsible for power production and the supply of fresh water to various regions in the Kingdom.

“We continue to see exciting advances in desalination throughout the Middle East, and I would like to bring special attention to this specific offshore application,” said Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery Senior Vice President of Water. “Once commissioned, these floating desalination solutions will be Energy Recovery’s largest offshore project, adding more capacity, redundancy, and flexibility in the region.
