Energy Recovery Awarded Over $12.6M in SWRO Contracts in North Africa


SAN LEANDRO, Calif. – Sept. 1, 2022 – Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII) today announced a slate of contract awards totaling more than $12.6 million to supply its PX® Pressure Exchanger® energy recovery devices (PX) to seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination facilities in North Africa, with all orders to be fulfilled by the end of 2022.

Energy Recovery estimates that across the four largest facilities in this group, the PX will prevent more than 130,000 metric tons of carbon emissions each year, the equivalent of removing over 28,000 passenger cars from the road.

When completed, these greenfield desalination facilities will supply hundreds of thousands of cubic meters of clean water each day to communities across North Africa, all of which meet the UN’s threshold to be considered water scarce or very water scarce. This investment into new desalination facilities demonstrates that increasing the supply of potable water and access to stable water sources is a major priority in this region.

“North Africa – much like its neighbor, the Middle East – continues to face a dynamic water crisis brought on by climate change, a growing population, and increasing demand from the industrial sector. These countries in North Africa continue to provide a robust and steady market for us as they invest in strengthening and diversifying their water infrastructure, with desalination playing a key role,” said Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery’s Senior Vice President of Water.

“We are proud that our desalination customers continue to rely on the PX’s product leadership to improve the efficiency of their operations and reduce costs, making clean water more accessible around the world. For nearly 20 years we have been investing and monitoring activity in the region and our investments have paid off in a big way. We now have a cumulative installed capacity in North Africa exceeding four million cubic meters per day, further underscoring our market leadership in the region.”

The PX has a peak efficiency of 98% and is capable of reducing energy consumption in SWRO facilities by as much as 60%. With a 25-year design cycle, the PX can provide significant savings to plant operators for years to come.

Energy Recovery Wins $2.5M of Chinese Industrial Water Projects

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — April 22, 2020  Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII) today announced new project awards totaling over $2.5 million. The Company will supply PX® Pressure Exchanger® devices (“PX”) and related equipment and services to multiple desalination facilities in China with a combined capacity of more than 140,000 cubic meters per day, or more than 37 million gallons per day. 

“Despite the challenges presented by the global coronavirus pandemic, our team has adjusted rapidly, and we continue to win new projects, fulfill orders, and do everything in our power to support our customers. Our products play a key role in the operation of domestic and international water treatment infrastructure, supplying much-needed water to communities and businesses around the world. These projects, which will service China’s industrial sector, were awarded in March and April of this year as China’s coronavirus outbreak began reaching a more manageable level, and the country was beginning to open up. This makes me cautiously optimistic about the future,” said Robert Mao, Energy Recovery Chairman and Interim President and Chief Executive Officer.  

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to be one of the fastest growing regions for desalination in the coming years. Throughout the region, rapid industrialization and urbanization have created a significant increase in the need for freshwater, and seawater reverse osmosis (“SWRO”) desalination can play a key part in meeting this demand. Oxfam, an alliance of NGOs focused on the alleviation of global poverty, recently singled out SWRO desalination as one of the most efficient methods to provide clean, potable water for communities in need in this region.  

“China was one of the earliest adopters of our PX Pressure Exchanger. For over 20 years we have viewed China as an exciting market, and it’s encouraging to see industry continuing to invest in desalination as the country slowly resumes business activities,” commented Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery Senior Vice President of Water. “Thanks to innovations like our PX, SWRO is beginning to rival the cost of some traditional water management sources and is far more energy efficient today than in the past. Once these facilities are in operation, our PXs are expected recycle hydraulic energy equivalent to over 120 gigawatt hours of energy annually, an amount associated with approximately 70,000 metric tons of carbon emissions. These facilities add to our already strong presence in China, and we are proud to continue to be the technology of choice and an integral part of China’s rich desalination past, present and future.”

Energy Recovery Wins $8.3M of Egyptian Water Projects

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — April 7, 2020 — Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII) today announced awards of USD $8.3M to supply its PX® Pressure Exchanger® devices (“PX”) and related equipment and services to multiple desalination projects in Egypt.

“Energy Recovery prides itself on being a trusted partner to the desalination industry, and we remain dedicated to serving our customers as we adjust to the impacts of COVID-19. The reputation of our PX and its lifetime value proposition are unmatched, and we are focused on fulfilling orders from existing inventory as well as booking new orders. Desalination plants are a critical part of the fresh water infrastructure of many countries, and we are proud to play our part in delivering affordable, clean water to the people of Egypt,” said Robert Mao, Energy Recovery Chairman and Interim President and Chief Executive Officer.

The desalination plants included in this award will have a collective capacity of 290,000 cubic meters per day. Once the plants are in operation, Energy Recovery’s PX devices are expected to recycle hydraulic energy equivalent to over 300 gigawatt hours of energy annually, an amount associated with approximately 200,000 metric tons of carbon emissions.

“Egypt’s population is growing quickly, and, according to the United Nations, the country’s per capita share of fresh water means it is on the verge of absolute water scarcity. Egypt has identified desalination as part of its strategy to improve freshwater security, as desalination offers a cost-effective means to diversify supply beyond variable sources such as the Nile River,” commented Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery Senior Vice President of Water. “The country is amidst an aggressive build-out of desalination facilities that is likely to continue at least through 2024 and exceed over 1 million cubic meters per day of new capacity for the municipal sector alone. Energy Recovery has been awarded seven mega-plants (plants exceeding 50,000m3/d) in Egypt to date, and we plan to continue to do our part to help Egypt meet these exciting challenges head-on.”

Energy Recovery Awarded $23.5M for Water Projects, Includes Contract for World’s Largest Reverse Osmosis Desalination Facility

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — March 12, 2020 — Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII) today announced awards of USD $23.5M to supply its PX® Pressure Exchanger® devices (“PX”) and related equipment and services to multiple desalination projects across the Middle East and North Africa. Shipments for these contracts are expected to begin Q1 2020 and continue throughout the first half of 2021. These awards include the largest contract in Energy Recovery’s history for the Taweelah Reverse Osmosis Independent Water Project (“Taweelah”), which will be the world’s largest seawater reverse osmosis desalination (“SWRO”) facility once completed.

“It is an honor to be included in this historic project. Greater scale and efficiency in water production is much needed, and we are proud to help lower the cost and carbon intensity of producing clean water for communities around the world,” said Robert Mao, Energy Recovery Chairman and Interim President and Chief Executive Officer. “When announcing Taweelah, the Emirates Water and Electricity Company noted ‘a major driver for the adoption of reverse osmosis instead of thermal desalination is the higher energy efficiency it offers.’ Thanks in part to the energy savings delivered by our pressure exchanger technology, SWRO’s economic advantages over thermal desalination methods are clear and unlikely to change. With larger projects like Taweelah, using inefficient technology is all the more costly, and we expect to see decision makers continue to choose SWRO over thermal.”

Located near Abu Dhabi city, Taweelah will have a capacity of 909,200 cubic meters per day, 44% larger than the world’s current largest SWRO facility, and is expected to be operational in late 2022. The facility will support both industry and the general public and play a critical role in meeting Abu Dhabi’s peak water demand, which is projected to rise by 11% between 2017 and 2024.

Taweelah is expected to break efficiency records with record low energy consumption per cubic meter of water produced. Compared to the nearby Taweelah power and thermal desalination plant, which was built in phases between 1985 and 2002, Energy Recovery estimates that the Taweelah SWRO plant will deliver water at a contracted cost of less than half that of the original thermal plant. Once the Taweelah SWRO plant is in operation, Energy Recovery’s PX devices are expected to recycle hydraulic energy equivalent to over 900 gigawatt hours of energy annually, an amount associated with approximately 550,000 metric tons of carbon emissions.

“Taweelah is not only a major milestone for Energy Recovery but also for the entire SWRO industry. Historically, our industry’s Achilles’ heel has been the energy intensive nature of the reverse osmosis process. No longer – many factors, including innovations in energy recovery devices and reverse osmosis membranes and a technology shift from thermal desalination to reverse osmosis, have reduced costs such that desalination water production is beginning to rival traditional water management costs,” said Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery Senior Vice President of Water. “We are proud to play our part in helping the SWRO industry continue to innovate, and we remain focused on reducing energy consumption and increasing system uptime and efficiency for our customers. The inclusion of our solutions in record-breaking SWRO projects demonstrates the scalability and reliability of our technology, as well as the deep expertise of our world class teams that support customers globally.”

Energy Recovery Wins $16.6 Million of Water Awards, Including First Mega-Project Thermal Desalination Conversion Award

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — December 5, 2019 — Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII) today announced total awards of $16.6 million (USD) to supply PX® Pressure Exchangers® (PX) and related equipment and services to multiple desalination facilities in the Middle East. The awards include Energy Recovery’s first contract to support the conversion of a mega-project (>50,000 cubic meters per day) thermal desalination facility to more cost-efficient seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination technology.

“These awards cap a record-breaking year for Energy Recovery, and we are pleased to see a trend we have long anticipated – the conversion of thermal desalination capacity to large-scale SWRO facilities – move from our pipeline to our backlog,” said Robert Mao, Energy Recovery Chairman and Interim President and Chief Executive Officer. “Much of the Middle East’s installed capacity is thermal desalination, which was largely built before technologies like the PX greatly improved the economics of SWRO. As older thermal desalination facilities reach the end of their useful life, owners and operators are evaluating the path forward. These facilities are needed to maintain current water supply, so they cannot be decommissioned without a replacement plan. Longer-term, the current thermal capacity of more than 20 million cubic meters per day creates an additional layer of growth potential for Energy Recovery.”

Shipments for these awards are expected to begin in Q1 2020 and continue throughout 2020. Energy Recovery estimates the PXs supplied to these facilities will prevent more than 600,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year. The facilities will collectively produce over 700,000 cubic meters of water per day.

“New-build SWRO facilities are driving economic development and providing much needed potable water across the Middle East. In parallel, older thermal facilities are almost universally choosing to replace or augment thermal production with SWRO technologies and are turning to Energy Recovery to help create a more cost- and carbon-efficient facility,” shared Energy Recovery Vice President of Water Rodney Clemente. “Although costs vary based on local conditions, thermal water production costs are on average two times higher than SWRO. Given these savings, even some newer thermal facilities with years of useful life remaining are evaluating a switch to SWRO. As this trend plays out in the coming years, we expect customers to continue to turn to the PX, which provides the lowest lifecycle cost of any energy recovery device on the market.”

Energy Recovery Awarded $5.8 Million for Water Projects in Saudi Arabia

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — July 18, 2019 — Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII) announced total awards of $5.8 million (USD) to supply its PX® Q300 Pressure Exchanger® devices along with related equipment and services to multiple desalination facilities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The devices are expected to ship in Q3 of 2019. These awards continue Energy Recovery’s growing footprint in the region. Earlier this year, the company announced separate desalination projects in Saudi Arabia worth $8.8 million, as well as projects in the United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman.

“Through our Water business, we continue to see opportunity and growth in the Middle East and across the globe,” said Energy Recovery President and CEO Chris Gannon. “As freshwater supply is strained by population growth, industrialization, rapid urbanization, and climate change, our energy recovery devices provide an innovative solution to help increase the supply and decrease the cost and carbon emissions associated with the production of critically needed freshwater. Today, our more than 20,000 devices installed worldwide help meet the daily water use of over 50 million people.”

Energy Recovery is the leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows. The company’s PX Pressure Exchanger (PX) is the most-installed energy recovery device for SWRO desalination facilities larger than 50,000 m3/d water capacity.

“We see a surge in SWRO desalination plant construction in the Middle East,” said Energy Recovery Vice President of Water Rodney Clemente. “This growth is a mixture of greenfield projects to increase local water supply and retrofits of existing desalination plants from thermal to SWRO technology. These existing plants are needed to maintain the status quo water supply, and as thermal desalination infrastructure ages in the region, facilities are noticing the cost savings SWRO provides – thanks in part to our PX – and investing in SWRO infrastructure.”

Energy Recovery estimates the PXs supplied to the Saudi Arabia desalination facilities will reduce power consumption for all projects by 31.7 megawatts, saving over 274 gigawatt hours of energy per year. The facilities will produce up to 246,000 cubic meters of water per day – enough freshwater to meet the daily consumption of approximately 400,000 people.

Energy Recovery Signs Partnership with Düchting Pumpen to Bolster New Financial Offering in Desalination

SAN LEANDRO, Calif.—January 18, 2017 — Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII), the leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, today announced the signing of a master agreement with Düchting Pumpen, a German-based pump manufacturer. The agreement will launch a collaborative partnership between the two companies, and will package Energy Recovery’s latest Pressure Exchanger technology with Düchting Pumpen’s pumping solutions to provide an all-encompassing energy recovery solution for customers in desalination.

The partnership’s packaged solution will be provided through an Energy Services Agreement (“ESA”), specifically the Prime Performance ESA, which includes the launch of the next generation of Pressure Exchanger, the PX Prime. The PX Prime offers the highest energy efficiency in the industry with added performance upgrades, including less fluid mixing.

Energy Recovery’s President and CEO Joel Gay said, “Innovation is central to our Company’s DNA. Energy Recovery’s newly formed partnership with Düchting Pumpen is yet another conduit for value-creating innovation to the market and will further our position as the dominant player in the global desalination industry. Just as we redefined the technology standard nearly 20 years ago with the introduction of our flagship Pressure Exchanger, the Prime Performance Energy Services Agreement could very well emerge as the procurement standard of the future. The multi-faceted synergies realized through our partnership with Düchting Pumpen, namely a complete, flawless delivery system of the industry’s best technology, service and support will lend significantly to this potential industry shift. By utilizing the Prime Performance ESA as a vehicle for delivery, we have eliminated a significant barrier to entry for those customers who seek plant optimization but are unable to secure financing. We have often discussed the cyclicality and relative lack of size of our total addressable market within desalination. The Prime Performance ESA and newly formed partnership with Düchting Pumpen could increase the attractiveness of the desalination market by availing the Company of significant retrofit opportunities and the potential of recurring and more predictable revenue streams. In short, the partnership between Energy Recovery and Düchting Pumpen to deliver the Prime Performance ESA is a natural evolution in the way we approach the desalination business.”

The Prime Performance Energy Services Agreement will work by packaging the desalination industry’s best energy recovery technology, namely the PX Prime, with installation, service and maintenance for the energy recovery solution. With this new, state-of-the-art solution, customers will enjoy savings in the form of maintenance costs (for both old and new equipment) and energy savings. The agreement will allow customers to use this technology without requiring any substantial upfront costs. Instead, customers will pay for the technology over time through a percentage of the total savings that the solution generates.

Düchting Pumpen will provide their pumps, which when paired with PX technology, will allow seamless integration into existing installations. With roots back to 1938 across three generations, Düchting Pumpen has decades of expertise in advanced centrifugal pumps for reverse osmosis desalination, and is already a leading provider of pumping equipment for the global water industry.

Dr. Carsten Düchting, CEO of Düchting Pumpen, said, “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Energy Recovery to deliver a unique solution that includes both industry-leading energy recovery and pumping equipment. We are excited at the prospect of accessing a new segment of the desalination market with this new solution.”

Energy Recovery To Replace Isobarix Technology in Milestone Retrofit Opportunity in Middle East

SAN LEANDRO, Calif.—November 29, 2016 — Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII), the leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, today announced that the company has been awarded another brownfield retrofit opportunity to install its industry leading PXTM Pressure ExchangerTM technology. The retrofit, located in the Middle East, marks the first time the Company will retrofit a plant using technology produced by Isobarix, which intended but failed to replicate the proprietary Pressure Exchanger solution. It is expected to ship in the 4th quarter of 2016.

The plant selected Energy Recovery to supply its Q-Series PX devices to replace the Isobarix technology, which has caused unacceptable levels of noise and vibration, as well as high maintenance costs. Energy Recovery’s PX devices will allow the plant to lower costs and enhance performance around noise, vibration, and safety.

Offering an industry-best return on investment, and designed to run with the highest efficiency and availability in the desalination industry, Energy Recovery will continue to seek out opportunities to retrofit small, medium and large-scale facilities around the globe.

Energy Recovery’s President and CEO Joel Gay stated, “This plant retrofit is a particularly seminal moment in the Company’s history and furthers our position of technology leadership within the global desalination market. A core tenant of our strategy in this segment is to target plants with inferior technology, demonstrate the superiority of our offerings, upgrade the plant and add to the portfolio of customers who are Pressure Exchanger loyalists. Isobarix’s technology operates under similar fluid physics principles as our flagship Pressure Exchanger but with decreased efficiency, reliability and performance. That we were able to unseat copycat and indeed inferior technology solidifies Energy Recovery’s pole position in the ongoing technology race within not only the global desalination market, but all core markets in which we arbitrage pressure energy and preserve pumping assets. In the past, we have believed that at least one Isobarix product infringes on certain of our intellectual property and this retrofit provides us with a further opportunity to investigate our belief and potentially discover other potential infringements. We will continue to aggressively execute against our long-term strategy with an increasing focus on protecting our intellectual property from those who would seek to otherwise usurp it.”

Energy Recovery Drives Desalination in United States with $1 Million Awarded for California and Texas Projects

SAN LEANDRO, Calif.—July 30, 2015—Energy Recovery Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII), the leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, today announced $1 million in awards for desalination projects in California and Texas.

Energy Recovery will supply its PX-Q300 Pressure Exchanger devices and AquaBold high-pressure pumps for the Charles E. Meyer Desalination Plant retrofit in Santa Barbara, California, in partnership with IDE technologies, a global water treatment solutions firm headquartered in Israel. The plant has a capacity of 15 MLD divided in three trains, which could be expanded in the future to double its capacity. Energy Recovery estimates that the plant will save about 26 GWh per year in energy consumption, and reduce its carbon footprint by about 15,000 tons per year. Order shipment is expected in the third quarter of this year.

Energy Recovery’s President and CEO Joel Gay stated, “For the Santa Barbara plant, we are supplying the PXs and the AquaBold high-pressure pumps. Sourcing both devices through Energy Recovery maximizes efficiencies for any plant, and we hope it will become a best practice for the desalination industry.”

In addition, Energy Recovery will provide PX-Q300 Pressure Exchangers for the M&G Chemicals Corpus Christi Facility in Texas, constructed by the company to produce plastics materials for the largest polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plant in the world. The Company has partnered with the Italveco Group, a global environmental engineering company headquartered in Italy. The desalination plant associated with the Corpus Christi facility is expected to produce 6 million gallons of water per day (MGD) to cover plant’s utility needs such as cooling system and boiler systems water make up, among others, and is expected to be in production by the first quarter of 2016. Energy Recovery estimates that the facility will save about 40 GWh per year in energy consumption, and reduce its carbon footprint by almost 24,000 tons per year. Order shipment is expected in the 4th quarter of 2015.

Mr. Gay added, “Energy Recovery has 16,000 devices in use around the world, but with the demand for desalination having been historically limited in the United States, we have had disproportionately few installations in our home country. This is starting to shift. While political factors will continue to present a challenge to widespread adoption of desalination in the U.S., these projects are a clear response to the epic drought that continues to wreak havoc on a number of state economies. As the provider of the foremost enabling technology in desalination, we are well positioned to benefit from and are proud to contribute to the domestic growth of the industry.”

Energy Recovery has already installed its PX-Q300 devices at the Carlsbad Desalination Plant in California, which is expected to begin production in 2015, and will produce 50 MGD for San Diego County.

Energy Recovery estimates the PX devices will reduce plant power consumption by 20 MW and save 173 GWh of energy per year. These energy savings are potentially avoiding about 100,000 tons per year of CO2 emissions.

The order is expected to ship by the fourth quarter of 2015, with the Company recognizing revenues upon delivery. The order represents continued momentum in Energy Recovery’s desalination business, as the Company has announced over $14 million in larger desalination orders, including this one, to date in 2015. This total does not include smaller sized OEM sales and aftermarket shipments that the Company records on a regular basis throughout each reporting period.

Joel Gay, President and Chief Executive Officer for Energy Recovery, stated, “We have continued to see steadily growing momentum in desalination orders throughout 2015. The Company has maintained its dominant market position, and is now seeing increasing activity in an improving desalination market. 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.”

The award-winning PX Pressure Exchanger remains the most efficient and reliable energy recovery solution on the market for desalination, operating with 98% efficiency in its energy exchange.

Saudi Arabian Desalination Plant Doubles City’s Water Supply With World’s Leading Energy Recovery PX Technology

Energy Recovery Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII), the leader in capturing reusable energy from industrial fluid flows and pressures cycles revealed that it will be part of ACCIONA Agua’s first contract for a desalination plant in Saudi Arabia. The plant will process enough seawater to bring 100,000 m³ per day of potable water for residents and industrial uses.

Saudi Arabia’s Marafiq Power & Water Utility Company awarded ACCIONA Agua a contract to design, construct, and bring into service a desalination plant called SWRO-4 by the end of 2014. Construction began in 2012 on the mega-plant, which will use reverse osmosis (RO) to desalinate water for Al Jubail, a city in the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia.

Worldwide, most desalination planning and construction companies using energy recapture rely on Energy Recovery technologies to minimize energy costs. Despite the reality that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia enjoys some of the world’s least expensive electricity rates, Marafiq Power & Water Utility Company and ACCIONA Agua still chose Energy Recovery’s solutions because of the unique combination of economic payback and thePX® device’s proven ability to reduce the environmental footprint. Each year Energy Recovery’s technology will yield over 116 million kWh in energy savings for the Al Jubail plant and reduce carbon emissions by 68,000 metric tons (the equivalent of taking more than 14,000 cars off the road in the U.S.).

ACCIONA Agua’s International Construction Director and Project Manager for the Jubail Project, Manuel Manjón, notes, “Using Energy Recovery’s technology was important to our design because we want to offer Al Jubail the most technologically advanced, most efficient, most reliable RO plant possible. Given the size and scale of our Saudi project, we need our plant to run with the best technology, and we’re getting that from Energy Recovery.  We have been implementing isobaric Pressure Exchangers for the majority of our desalination plants for almost a decade and the device’s performance has always exceeded our expectations.”

“We look forward to collaborating with our clients on this important project,” states Tom Rooney, CEO of Energy Recovery. “Considering the Kingdom’s low energy costs, the PX technology was chosen to ensure high reliability and the smallest environmental footprint – which speaks volumes about Marafiq and Acciona’s commitment to stay ahead of the technology curve – and to preserve the environment.”

Situated along the coast of the Persian Gulf, Al Jubail has intense water needs. More than 50 percent of the Kingdom’s drinking water comes from desalination- a number steadily growing as unrenewable sources are depleted for the population that has quadrupled over 40 years. Energy Recovery’s technologies for recapturing and reusing energy from fluid flows have already proven highly efficient in several of Saudi Arabia’s other desalination plants. Al Jubail has three smaller RO plants, some operating with legacy centrifugal energy recovery technology; this new ACCIONA Agua desalination plant will double the current potable water available for the city’s residents and its industrial complex.

Osmotic Power Play: Energy Recovery Teams With GS Engineering & Construction Corp to Develop Highly Available Renewable Energy Source

Energy Recovery Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII), the leader in capturing reusable energy from industrial fluid flows and pressures cycles, today announced that it has signed a mutual cooperation agreement with Seoul-based global company GS Engineering & Construction Corporation (GS E&C Corp) which is a part of Korean conglomerate GS Group,  to significantly advance  osmotic power generation using Energy Recovery’s state-of-the-art  PX Pressure Exchanger® technology.  A pilot program is already underway and it is anticipated that a unit will be operational in 2014 at GS E&C Corp R&D center in Korea.

The revolutionary process of Pressure Retarded Osmosis (PRO) is created by mixing of seawater and freshwater and the resulting osmotic power serves as both a renewable and consistent source of electricity.  While still the in the early stages, the best estimates of global production potential of osmotic power exceed 1,600 terawatt hours, or the equivalent of half of Europe’s entire energy demand.

Initially developed for seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination, Energy Recovery’s PX® devices have shown tremendous potential and interest across multiple industries due to their adaptability, reliability and efficiency.

How Energy Recovery’s PX Pressure Exchangers® Work

Energy Recovery’s PX devices are currently deployed at SWRO desalination plants all over the world. By recycling the energy typically wasted as part of the reject stream, the PX devices-which operate at 98 percent efficiency-reduce energy use by up to 60 percent, helping to make desalination an affordable solution to global water scarcity. Energy Recovery’s devices function on a similar principle in osmotic power processes. You can watch a video of that process here: How the PX Pressure Exchanger works.

How Osmotic Power Works

For many years the idea of PRO or osmotic power was ‘pie in the sky’ scientific theory and not seen as a viable energy solution.[1]  Today, the fields of chemical engineering and science are looking at this renewable energy source as a major solution to the world’s water and energy scarcity problems.[2]  Osmotic power process can convert the pressure differential between two water streams into hydraulic pressure that can be used to drive a turbine that produces electrical energy.  The PX devices work in unison with the turbines to cost-effectively enable stable, reliable, environmentally friendly energy production anywhere freshwater and saltwater are available.

For more information on how Osmotic Power works, see here.

The advantages of osmotic power are numerous:

  • Generates clean power with no harmful emissions
  • Seawater is abundant and readily available
  • Solution is scalable and applicable worldwide
  • More reliable than other power sources (i.e. Wind and solar) because the power generated is base loaded

Proven Partners

GS E&C Corp is one of the main Korean multinational firms investing heavily in R&D in the global water and renewable energy markets. In 2011 GS E&C Corp acquired Spanish desalination facility maker, Inima, one of the world’s top ten reverse osmosis (RO) desalination specialists, for $US 287M. Through this acquisition, GS E&C Corp aims to expand its RO desalination business operations. Soon thereafter, GS E&C Corp was issued a multimillion-dollar grant from the South Korean government to expand their research and development program to design a pilot plant for a Pressure Retarded Osmosis (PRO) application.  For GS E&C Corp, entering into a joint R&D effort with Energy Recovery was a logical extension and next step given its market leadership in reverse osmosis desalination.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Energy Recovery on osmotic power technology that promises to bring about innovative and sustainable change,” said Mr. Jeong Woo Seo, CTO of GS E&C. “We chose the PX based on the value and proven reliability and performance that it has provided to us and dozens of other engineering firms worldwide for over two decades.”

“GS Engineering & Construction Corp is a visionary company, on the horizon of the next big thing.  We have been looking forward to developing this technology with a strategic technology partner to make osmotic power a reality across the world,” said Tom Rooney, CEO of Energy Recovery. “It’s ideal to collaborate with a proven engineering market leader such as GS Engineering & Construction Corp and thrilling to adapt our core technology for new sources of renewable energy.”

Longest Running Hybrid Seawater Desalination Plant in Middle East to Use Energy Recovery Technology

Energy Recovery Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII), the leader in harnessing reusable energy from industrial fluid flows and pressure cycles, today announced that ACCIONA Agua has chosen Energy Recovery to provide its premium PX® Q line of energy recovery devices for the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) Fujairah 1 Expansion desalination project.  With the PX Q technology, the plant will conserve 83,000 metric tons of CO₂ per year – amounting to 140 million kWh of energy savings and over US$14 million in cost savings annually.

The project involves the Emirates SembCorp Water & Power Company, a public-private company made up of the Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA) and Singapore’s SembCorp water and energy utility who awarded the contract to ACCIONA Agua and Infrastructure.  Fujairah 1 Expansion or F1, is the longest running hybrid seawater desalination plant in the Middle East, combining thermal and reverse osmosis technologies. This project will increase water production by 136,500 m³/day totaling the plant’s production capacity to 592,000m3/day.[1]  Considering that water scarcity in the UAE and in the MENA region will continue to be a pressing issue, this project could not be happening at a better time.  MENA is home to 6.3 percent of the world’s population but has access to only 1.4 percent of the world’s renewable fresh water.

According to UAE and Integrated Water and Power Plant regulations, the F1 design specifications included a ‘not-to-exceed’ maximum power consumption limit and only Energy Recovery’s isobaric PX Q solution fits this requirement.  In choosing Energy Recovery’s PX Q technology, ACCIONA’s objectives were two-fold:  to lower the power consumption of water production for the end-user and to reduce the physical footprint of the energy recovery device trains.  When the original plant was first built in 2003, legacy Pelton technology was chosen.  Now that Fujairah 1 is expanding the facility, the new plant will use an isobaric design, allowing the end-user to produce water at net-lower power consumption.

“Energy Recovery has a long-standing reputation as a premium partner in the UAE and the MENA region. We want to be vigilant with the specifications of the plant and the PX Q solution gives us the security we need to fulfill the required project guarantees,” explained Manuel Manjón, International Construction Director for ACCIONA Agua and Project Manager for the F1 Expansion.

Located in Qidfa, Fujairah, this project is one of several that will come online throughout the next decade, after many years of delays in the Persian Gulf region due to the global financial crisis.  Since 2012, many projects in the region’s largest economies including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Oman have rekindled activity. In fact, the UAE recently announced a 51 million dirham (or US$14 billion) investment plan for water treatment plants for the next four years.[2]

“It’s thrilling to be a part of the UAE’s push to advance the hybridization and technology advancements of desalination plants – and to be on the forefront of huge growth in the region.  From reducing capital costs and lowering carbon emissions, the companies leading the F1 Expansion effort understand the economic and environmental benefits of this method,” states Tom Rooney, CEO of Energy Recovery.

Energy Recovery to Save Carlsbad Desalination Plant $12 Million and Reduce CO2 Emissions by 41,000 Metric Tons Annually

Energy Recovery Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII) announced today that its technology will be used in the Carlsbad Desalination Project to help reach its ambitious carbon neutral goals while significantly reducing overall energy costs.  IDE, technology provider and future operator of the plant, awarded Energy Recovery a contract for its innovative energy recovery device (ERD) technology to the project, which will be the largest desalination plant in the western hemisphere. As part of the agreement, Energy Recovery will provide 144 of its PX Pressure Exchanger Q300 units to the seawater reverse-osmosis (SWRO) plant, aiding the estimated production output of 189,250 cubic meters of desalinated water per day (equivalent to 50 million gallons per day). The units are expected to ship by the end of the year.

By choosing the PX technology, the vanguard project for California’s first large-scale plant will save an estimated 116 million kWh (kilowatt-hours) of energy per year, the equivalent of $12 million.[1] This energy savings will also reduce CO2 emissions by 41,000[2] metric tons per year- roughly the annual greenhouse gas emissions from 8,542 passenger vehicles.

Energy Recovery’s PX Pressure Exchanger devices work by capturing hydraulic energy from the high-pressure reject stream of SWRO processes and transfers this energy to low-pressure feed water with an efficiency of over 98 percent. Because the PX device itself consumes no electrical power and recycles otherwise lost energy in the form of pressure, the overall energy consumption of the process is drastically reduced.

Carlsbad Desalination Project Represents Opportunity for Desalination in U.S.

When the Carlsbad plant comes online in 2016, it will bring the largest, most technologically advanced and energy-efficient desalination plant in the western hemisphere to San Diego County. In California and across the U.S., long-standing sources for fresh water are either diminishing because of droughts or becoming unsustainable given population and agricultural growth. The Carlsbad Desalination Project will provide the region with a locally-controlled, drought-proof supply of high-quality water that meets or exceeds all state and federal drinking water standards.

Semi-arid San Diego County has very limited local water resources; the County Water Authority’s long-term strategy to enhance the reliability of the region’s water supply includes diversifying its water supply sources. The Carlsbad Desalination Project is a crucial element of this plan and will provide enough high-quality drinking water to serve up to 112,000 households.

Along with the other project partners, Energy Recovery is working to demonstrate that desalination is a viable solution to growing water demand. The Carlsbad desalination plant is signaling a trend for upcoming projects in the U.S. According to Global Water Intelligence, there are currently more than 12 desalination projects in various stages of planning in California, and more that 40 medium and large projects on the drawing board across the U.S.

“The Carlsbad project has moved the needle for the desalination industry in the U.S. said Tom Rooney, CEO at Energy Recovery. “We’re excited to bring our experience and technologies to help this project and future U.S. desalination plants maximize their energy savings just as we have helped quench demand in regions and countries lacking fresh water like Australia, China and the Middle East North Africa.”
