Consolidated Water has selected Energy Recovery's PX Pressure Exchanger (PX) devices and ERI AquaBold pumps under the expansion of the Bahamas Water and Sewerage Corp's Blue Hills seawater reverse osmosis project in Bahamas.

The implementation of ERI’s devices will reduce the energy and costs required to produce drinking water on the island of New Providence, Bahamas.

The expanded Blue Hills desalination project was originally built approximately six years ago with competing energy recovery devices and high pressure pumps, Energy Recovery said.

The company also said that the seawater reverse osmosis project will provide 18,500 cubic meters, or about 4.9 million gallons per day, of clean, safe and affordable drinking water to the inhabitants of the island.
