The Southern Seawater Authority Perth 2 Desalination Plant was designed to support the greater Perth Region of Western Australia. The plant was constructed to support the increase in water consumption that was created through population growth and reduced rainfall.
The rapid field assembly of the StrengThin system and Victaulic high-pressure plug valves dramatically reduced field man-hours and assisted in creating schedule certainty. The total field installation time for a complete 16″ | DN400 valve assembly was reduced from 2½ days to 10 minutes.
The Southern Sea Water Authority Perth 2 Desalination Plant has the potential to deliver 30% of the state’s water supply from climate independent water sources.
