The Victorian Desalination Project is being delivered as a Public-Private Partnership. When operational, the plant will have a 440,000 m³/day capacity and supply an estimated 150 billion litres of water per year to Melbourne, Geelong, South Gippsland and Western Port towns.

Yukio Nagira, president of Nitto Denko, which owns Hyranautics, said: “The newest SWC6 Max element was selected for this project because it achieves both the greatest permeate and highest salt rejection in the industry.”
