Flowserve Earns $3 M from Desal Projects in Spain
Flowserve Corporation has received three orders for energy recovery devices for seawater reverse osmosis desalination projects in Spain, including the Campo de Dalais project, according to a June 9 press release.
The Campo de Dalais project will use CALDER Dual Work Exchanger Energy Recovery (DWEER) units.
The other two orders are for energy recovery turbines and a retrofit of an existing DWEER installation. The combined value of the three orders for these projects total more than 2.2 million Euros (3 million USD) and represent more than 100,000 cubic meters (25 million gallons) of daily desalination capacity.
“We are pleased with how global desalination customers have responded to our acquisition of CALDER desalination products and technologies, which gives us increased confidence in the strong growth potential,” said Lewis Kling, Flowserve president and chief executive officer
The orders were booked in the second quarter of this year.
“Throughout the world, population growth and urbanization are creating the need for fresh water in areas where demand exceeds supply. Flowserve recently acquired CALDER energy recovery products and technology for global desalination projects to complement our existing flow management products and to help countries around the world meet their growing water needs through desalination,” added Kling “As we continue to work hard to expand our market share in the water industry, we look forward to not only providing the energy recovery devices needed for a more energy efficient desalination process, but also our total integrated desalination flow control system including pumps, valves and seals.”
Spain is the largest desalination market in the Mediterranean region, which has experienced water shortages.
