Flowserve receives multi-million dollar order for vertical pumps package
Flowserve, a global provider of fluid motion and control products and services, announced it has received a multi-million dollar order from water treatment solutions company IDE Technologies.
The order, made in the last quarter of 2013, covers the supply of pumping systems for the seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plant in Carlsbad, California, US.
The 189,250 m3/day plant was designed and will be subsequently operated by Israel-based IDE Technologies 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 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.
