New Desalination Projects Will Deliver More than 500 Million Liters of Clean
SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland - September 3, 2013 - Pentair Ltd. (NYSE: PNR), a
global leader in sustainable water solutions, is working with customers around
the globe to address the growing need for clean water in water-scarce regions.
Pentair was recently awarded projects to supply equipment and expertise at
desalination facilities--converting sea water to fresh water--in Saudi Arabia,
Morocco, Oman and India, helping to generate more than 500 million liters of
clean water daily.
"As fresh water demands increase in regions with an abundance of seawater, due
to both a growing population and increased manufacturing needs, Pentair is
uniquely positioned to partner with municipalities and industry to increase the
potable water supply," said Todd Gleason, senior vice president of growth
Pentair. "Our proprietary membranes, membrane housings, pumps, valves, controls
and filters work together to create highly efficient, integrated solutions for a
variety of customer needs."
One such example of a customer challenge is a large city on the coast of India,
which relied on water tankers to supply municipal water directly to residents.
Pentair is providing equipment and expertise from both its Valves & Controls and
Filtration & Process businesses for the planned desalination plant, which will
supply fresh water to the city's five million residents.
Pentair products and technologies used across the projects include its X-Flow
ultrafiltration membranes, CodeLine membrane housings, Vanessa and Keystone
valves and Biffi and Alpha-Max actuators. Pentair utilizes some of the most
advanced and proven technologies for desalination to address critical water
shortages throughout the world. For additional information, visit the company's
