The Southern Seawater Alliance comprises of Tecnicas Reunidas, Valoriza Agua, AJ Lucas, WorleyParsons and the Water Corporation.
AWMA were engaged to design and manufacture topsealing penstocks and a modular stopboard structure to isolate the plant from the seawater tunnel.
The TLF Penstocks measure 4m high x 2.4m wide and have been hydrostatically tested to withstand 1.5 times the required 80 tonne of head pressure.
These inlet gates are manufactured from grade 2507 super duplex stainless steel for a 100 year design life.
This site is Perth’s second desalination plant that will produce 50 gigalitres of drinking water annually with a capacity to expand to 100 gigalitres per year.
AWMA’s project experience and capacity to deliver on-time and on budget within other desalination, water and wastewater treatment applications, along with a reputation for innovative custom designed solutions, was valuable in securing this project.
Following the successful completion of stage 1, AWMA has since been awarded additional contracts for this plant. The second phase of Western Australia’s Southern Seawater Desalination Plant (SSDP) is a $450 Million project.
AWMA were engaged to supply topsealing penstocks identical to the highly successful gates designed and manufactured for stage one of the project.
AWMA are now certified penstock suppliers for the Water Corporation in Western Australia.
