Gold Coast Desalination

image

GHD was initially engaged to identify alternative seawater desalination technologies to develop a scheme to meet the Gold Coast Council’s future water needs as part of its WaterFutures program.

Following this review, GHD undertook water quality analysis and developed preliminary concept designs for a 50 –100ML/d seawater desalination plant. The continuation of the drought brought the project forward and GHD provided technical support to the procurement team to deliver the project. This project is now being delivered under an alliance contract.
