IDE is one of the world's leading global desalination companies.
IDE’s pioneering desalination work began in 1965 as an effort to solve Israel's chronic shortage of fresh water. Today, having accumulated 45 years of know-how and experience, IDE has built some 400 successful desalination plants of all types in over 40 countries, including the largest SWRO (Seawater Reverse Osmosis) plants.
IDE has built its reputation on its ability to deliver end-to-end desalination solutions for its customers throughout the world. Its solutions begin with superior proprietary technologies, including both thermal and membrane solutions. IDE designs, engineers and delivers optimized installations for each site, and if required, creates and executes a comprehensive financing plan. IDE may also take over ongoing operations and maintenance responsibility. The value of this total-package approach has been validated by the success of some 400 projects spanning 40 countries.
