Reliance Chooses IDE’s Reverse Osmosis Solution to Expand India’s Largest Desalination Plant
Desalination plant to increase water capacity at low cost with reduced energy consumption
KADIMA, Israel, December 11, 2013 – IDE Technologies today announced that Reliance Industries Ltd., India’s largest private sector company, has ordered its first seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination solution from IDE. Reliance chose IDE’s SWRO solution to meet the increased water capacity needs of the plant at one of India’s largest oil refineries.
The new SWRO plant will yield pure processed water. The plant will be close to the sea, decreasing the length of pipes and thereby reducing costs related to pumping.
“Over the past several years, we’ve established a strong partnership with Reliance built on trust and success with our reliable desalination solutions. With Reliance’s first installation of our SWRO solution, we look forward to taking our partnership to the next level of success and growth,” said Avshalom Felber, CEO of IDE Technologies. “We are excited that one of India’s largest seawater desalination plants is to follow in the tradition of our other large-scale SWRO plants, including our leading projects at Ashkelon, Hadera, Cape Preston, Sorek and Carlsbad.”
