The operation of The Perth Desalination Project
Facing impending water shortages in April 2005,
Western Australia's Water Corporation (WA) formed
an alliance with global water treatment company
Degrémont and constructor Multiplex Engineering
The resulting alliance (pro-alliance) was tasked
with the design, build and 25-year operation (alliance
between Degrémont & Water Corporation (WA)) of
The Perth Seawater Desalination Plant -- the city's rst
seawater desalination plant using reverse osmosis
technology and the rst large desalination plant in
the southern hemisphere.
The $345 million state-of-the-art plant is located
at Kwinana, 25 kilometres south of Perth in Western
Australia. With a capacity of 143,000 cubic metres
per day, the plant is able to produce up to 17 per cent
of Perth's drinking water.
Following ve years of continued operational
success, the plant continues to consistently help with
the area's drought, population growth, increased
water demand and reduced rainfall, allowing the
people of Perth to trust and rely on the valued
operation of the plant.

Northern Victoria is one of the most important
agricultural production regions in Australia. The
farmers in this region produce food for local and
export markets totalling around $1.94 billion.
Following 12 consecutive years of drought, and
irrigators' reliance on an outdated irrigation system,
this once-productive food region struggled to
maintain this output.
The $290 million FutureFlow alliance was set
up in 2008 by GM-W to go about modernising
the existing irrigation infrastructure (over 6300
