Helping secure Melbourne’s water supply: Victoria Desalination Plant

Located near Wonthaggi in Victoria, Australia, the plant is one of the largest reverse-osmosis desalination plants in the world, capable of supplying up to 150 billion litres of water a year with capability to expand to 200 billion litres. It remains one of the most technically advanced, environmentally sensitive and energy efficient desalination facilities in Australia. Secured in 2009, Beca’s joint venture with Parsons Brinckerhoff delivered a multitude of engineering design services on this A$3.5 billion project – winning the Australian Water Association Infrastructure Project Innovation Award in 2014. Beca’s largest design project to date, over 750 employees across multiple offices worked on this project.
