As the world's demand for water grows and communities seek to
reinforce their water supplies with non-climate dependent sources,
desalination of brackish water or sea water has become an
increasingly attractive option. GHD's work has included significant
desalination projects in Australia, the USA, Mexico,
Africa and the Middle East with plant capacities of up to
250Ml a day.
Our team provides comprehensive services covering the
desalination of saline water sources such as sea, estuarine and
brackish water for municipal and industrial applications. We offer
a multi-disciplinary approach to deliver cost-effective and
innovative solutions that harness the latest advances in
But the effective delivery of desalinated water is much more
than just technology.
GHD services cover technology and site selection
(including environmental impact assessment),
and infrastructure planning and design (piping, pumping,
intake and outfall structures, high and low voltage electrical
work, material durability and selection, storage, filtration,
chemical dosing, instrumentation and control).
GHD also undertake water quality
assessments, pilot studies, hydrodynamic modelling for intakes and
outfalls, pre- and post-treatment requirements, community
consultation, environmental management, design life assessments,
procurement and owner's engineering services.
