FEDCO announces the completion of a 1.4 million-gallon-per-day BiTurbo installation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The project was carried out in partnership with TSG Water Resources and H2O Innovation and marks the largest BiTurbo high-recovery SWRO system commissioned to date in the Western Hemisphere. The facility will provide water for the area’s tourism industry.

TSG Water Resources selected the BiTurbo high-recovery seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) technology in order to expand the production capacity of the site without requiring additional construction works or pretreatment equipment. The two-train system operates at 55 to 57 percent recovery with low energy consumption and optimal membrane performance, meeting the client’s requirements both for water production and carbon emission reduction. The small footprint of the BiTurbo technology also allows the client unparalleled flexibility by leaving space free for future expansions. With space at a premium in coastal resorts, providing desalination technology is compact, as well as efficient and reliable, is crucial for the tourism sector.

Eli Oklejas, the CEO of FEDCO, adds, “Our close collaboration with TSG has been a crucial element in turning the technical concept into a fully realized solution.”
