From containerized solutions to large-scale plants, Fluence provides cost-effective desalination solutions for potable water and industrial process water
To ensure a consistent, reliable, and safe water supply, many communities, water authorities, industries, and private companies are turning to desalination to meet their potable and process water needs.
Fluence has more than 30 years of experience in the financing, design, construction, and operation of desalination plants — including unique solutions like NIROBOX™ and NIROFLEX — for municipal, commercial, and industrial clients.
Our high-recovery systems reduce the need for brine disposal and maximize permeate production in the most cost-effective and environmentally sustainable way possible. Fluence has been actively developing technical solutions for brine concentration, with the aim of minimizing discharge costs and environmental footprint. We offer a variety of brine-reduction technologies selected to suit client needs and limitations, including high-recovery reverse osmosis, evaporation ponds, thermal brine concentration, and zero liquid discharge (ZLD).
Our plants, which integrate top-quality components from reliable and well-known suppliers, are fully automated and can be controlled by our innovative Smart Operation system, which enables real-time monitoring and response, and optimization of operating costs.
Securing a Reliable Water Source With Desalination
In a world where water scarcity is a serious and growing problem, desalination can be the key to a reliable source of drinking water or industrial process water.

Industry-Leading Desalination Solutions
Fluence provides decentralized, pre-engineered and custom-designed desalination plants that reliably deliver safe drinking water to government entities, municipalities, and private companies, and high-quality process water to industrial operations.
NIROBOX™ Containerized Desalination
NIROBOX™ is Fluence’s state-of-the-art desalination plant housed in a 40-foot shipping container, designed to supply high-quality drinking or process water anywhere in the world, and at the lowest possible cost. Nirobox units are modular, plug-and-play systems that can be deployed in a few months.
Our seawater Nirobox MEGA module can produce up to 1,500 m3/d (400,000 GPD) of desalinated water, all in one container. Our Nirobox SW models are designed with the environment in mind and are the most efficient desalination plants on the market, consuming 25% less power than conventional seawater desalination plants.
With models for seawater and brackish water desalination, the Nirobox is the most cost-effective solution when it comes to meeting drinking water or process water needs in communities and industries.
Fluence's team of global water experts has designed a family of pre-engineered, pre-treatment and reverse osmosis (RO) building blocks for cost-effective seawater desalination systems to match your water sourcing needs. Designed from the highest quality standard components, the NIROFLEX system is delivered and deployed quickly and efficiently to provide a new source of water for municipal, private, and industrial users. A NIROFLEX system can supply from 100 m3/day to 15,000 m3/day (25,000 GPD to 4 MGD) of fresh water from various seawater inlet sources.
Desalination for Drinking Water
Fluence's desalination systems produce drinking water from a wide variety of sources and can be custom-designed to accommodate varying feed-water characteristics and desired finished water quality. Our solutions can also be based on our state-of-the-art, pre-engineered containerized NIROBOX™ systems, the most advanced technology for decentralized desalination.
Fluence also provides emergency relief plants in the wake of natural disasters and as an ongoing water supply for troops in the field.
Industrial Process Water Desalination
Fluence's systems provide process water for a wide variety of applications, including permeate for cooling and other uses, demineralized water for high-pressure steam boilers, and conditioning of permeate for potable use.
