OPTTM has enjoyed strong support from several institutions and industrial leaders within the desalination industry. These include the US Office of Naval Research (ONR), Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center’s US Navy Seawater Desalination Test Facility and the Affordable Desalination Collaboration. 

The ONR provided initial funding and continual support that has helped OPT to develop our line of axial piston pump and energy recovery products.

The US Navy Seawater Desalination Test Facility and the Affordable Desalination Collaboration are also instrumental in providing OPT with “real world” test conditions and third party validation of our products performance and specifications.
