The Victorian Desalination Project

The VDP provides a rainfall independent water supply to Melbourne, Geelong and some regional areas to supplement our existing catchments if required.  It can produce high quality water whenever required and  key components of the plant have a design life of 100 years, making it a resource that will be valued in times of future drought.

The Desalination Plant

Located in Wonthaggi, the Victorian Desalination Plant comprises 29 buildings including the reverse osmosis building, the heart of the VDP. The plant has a guaranteed production capacity of 150 billion litres of water a year and the capability to expand to 200 billion litres a year - enough to fill 178 Olympic size swimming pools every single day!
