Solomon Benchmarking

Desalination Study

Enhance your desalination plant performance and your profits with data-driven decisions and see how you compare with your peers.

The number of desalination plants worldwide is expected to double in the next 15 years to meet the growing demand for water in human consumption, industrial use, and irrigation.

The anticipated surge in desalination—the removal of salt from seawater or brackish water—will put pressure on desalination plant owners to maintain top facility performance to meet demand. But how can you know what a top-performing desalination plant looks like?

Backed by Proven Methodology and Recognized Experts

Almost four decades of experience in the energy industry studying company performance has given us a sound understanding of what “good” looks like. With the Worldwide Desalination Plant Performance Analysis (Desalination Study), facility owners and operators benefit from the same proven and widely accepted Comparative Performance Analysis™ (CPA™) used for benchmarking assets in power generation and other energy related industries. The study provides data-supported insights and gap analysis as a tool to help operators improve and sustain higher level performance.

Why Choose Solomon’s Desalination CPA Study?

Every desalination facility is unique due to the different combinations of technologies such as multi-stage flash, multi-effect distillation, and reverse osmosis, as well as plant capacities, operating regimes, ambient conditions, and other factors. Considering these differences, the Desalination Study was designed to help clients understand how their facilities compare to their industry peers and best-in-class performers. This understanding, in turn, leads to data-supported insights, actionable tasks, and improved performance.

Solomon’s approach incorporates both the technical and commercial aspects of capital-intensive assets. Our unique service leverages the world’s largest proprietary database of operational and financial performance of assets and best practices. We apply rigorous verification and a trusted methodology to these datasets to normalize differences in scale, complexity, and location, allowing for true comparisons. Our success in evaluating capital-intensive assets also stems from our consultants, who have on average 30 years’ experience managing and operating these types of assets.
