The total value of the three orders for these projects total over EUR2.2 million ($3 million) 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 of these new Flowserve products, said Lewis Kling, Flowserve president and chief executive officer.

The orders were booked in the second quarter of 2009.

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 compliment 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. We will also support this desalination market through Flowserve’s extensive Quick Response Center (QRC) network and hundreds of sales support team members worldwide.

The company’s CALDER products and technologies specialize in the design, engineering and supply of energy recovery equipment and related proprietary technologies for the reverse osmosis process used in the desalination plants around the world. CALDER’s energy-recovery technology is to capture and reuse waste energy in the desalination process, lowering net energy consumption and improving overall process efficiency.
