Join TTNA for a tour of the Victorian Desalination Project, the largest desalination plant in Australia and the largest seawater reverse osmosis plant in operation globally.Desal plant image-web

Delivering substantial innovation in renewable technologies to mitigate potential environmental impacts, the plant (pictured at right) was built with 55,000 membranes and 72 dual media filtration pumps that remove salinity from salt water to make high-quality drinking water.  A source of rainfall-independent water, the plant has a production capacity of 150 billion litres of water a year.

Completed in December 2012 at a cost of $5.7 billion, the award-winning project features Australia’s largest living green roof and is surrounded by a 225-hectare coastal park providing a biodiversity bank for local flora species.
