Flowserve Corp has won a US$10 million order for CALDER Dual Work Exchanger Energy Recovery (DWEER) units for the Sorek seawater desalination plant in Israel.
With a capacity of 150 million cubic metres per year, Sorek is the largest seawater desalination plant in the world featuring isobaric chamber recovery system technology. The Sorek desalination plant is owned by Sorek Desalination Ltd, a joint venture between IDE Technologies and Hutchison Water.
“This order further solidifies our position as a leader in the growing desalination industry,” said Tom Ferguson, president of the Flowserve Flow Solutions Group. “As the worldwide demand for fresh water continues to outpace supply, Flowserve is proud to offer technology that can help reduce the cost of the desalination process and provides more potable water for those who need it.”
