Energy Recovery Inc using PX energy recovery devices in Australian desalination plant

The desalination plant is being built by the AdelaideAqua consortium, a joint project between McConnell Dowell Constructors, Abigroup Contractors, ACCIONA Agua and United Utilities Australia.  

Using Energy Recovery Inc’s PX energy recovery devices, the desalination plant will save more than 3,120 kW of energy and offset more than 16,000 tons of CO2 annually.  

Luis Castilla, managing director of ACCIONA Agua said: “We have experienced tremendous results in terms of conserving energy and resources when implementing the Energy Recovery PX devices in our desalination plants. AdelaideAqua marks our entry into the Australian market, and we are committed to its success as a world-leading facility in terms of energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and overall performance. Energy Recovery’s PX devices are essential to ensuring this success.”
