DALLAS, November 13, 2013 - Flowserve Corporation (FLS), a leading provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, today announced it has received a multi-million dollar order from IDE Technologies to supply pumping systems for the seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plant located in Carlsbad, Calif. This order was booked in the third quarter of 2013.
Israel-based IDE was selected to design and subsequently operate the 189,250 cubic meters/day (50 million gallons/day) Carlsbad desalination plant for 30 years. With an expected completion date during the fourth quarter of 2015, this SWRO plant is projected to be the largest desalination plant in North America.
IDE Technologies purchased three large Flowserve vertical seawater intake pumps constructed in super duplex stainless steel to supply the highly corrosive raw seawater to the plant. Additionally, eight large vertical, double suction, twin volute pumps constructed in 316L stainless steel were specified and purchased to transfer the potable water from the SWRO plant into the San Diego County Water Authority distribution system.
"We are pleased that IDE Technologies continues to work with Flowserve on projects of this importance and magnitude," said Jim Quain, president, Flowserve Sales Organization. "As a global leader in the growing desalination industry, Flowserve pumps provide an established track record for efficiency and reliability. Because IDE will operate the SWRO plant for the next 30 years, proven reliability was a key factor in the award of this contract."
