Nitto Denko/Hydranautics Announces Melbourne Project Award
Company contracted to supply its SWC6 MAX and ESPA2+ elements to the Victorian Desalination Project
Nitto Denko/Hydranautics announced that it has been contracted to supply its SWC6 MAX and ESPA2+ elements to the Victorian Desalination Project, currently under construction on the Bass Coast, near the town of Wonthaggi.
The contract was awarded by design and construction contractor for the project, Thiess Degremont.
The project will deliver Australia’s latest desalination plant and is being delivered as a public‐private partnership. When operational, the plant will offer a 440,000-cu-meters per-day capacity and supply an estimated 150 billion liters of water per year to Melbourne, Geelong, South Gippsland and Western Port towns.
“The newest SWC6 MAX element was selected for this project because it achieves both the greatest permeate and highest salt rejection in the industry,” said Nitto Denko Corp. President Yukio Nagira, of Osaka, Japan.
The Victorian Desalination Project is due for completion by the end of December 2011.
