NanoH2O To Supply Nanocomposite Reverse Osmosis Membranes For Two Desalination Plants In The Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia

The Company wins two significant projects in critical market

NanoH2O, Inc., manufacturer of the most efficient and cost effective reverse osmosis (RO) membranes for seawater desalination, has been selected for two large projects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The first project, awarded by Al Fatah Water and Power International, is for phase II of the Jubail desalination plant in which QuantumFlux membranes will produce 13,000 cubic meters of water per day. The second project, a desalination plant to be designed by AES Arabia at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (“KAUST”) Research Park, will produce 15,000 cubic meters of water per day. Both installations are scheduled for 2014.

“These are two important projects for our company’s growth in this critical region,” said Nicholas Dyner, VP of Global Sales and Marketing for NanoH2O, Inc. “We are extremely pleased to have been chosen by Al Fatah Water and Power International and AES Arabia to supply our high rejection QuantumFlux membranes. The contracts are a testament to the growing global market acceptance of our innovative membrane technology and the benefits of QuantumFlux membranes.”
