Construction has started on the $3.5 billion desalination plant at Wonthaggi in Victoria. The Aquasure consortium has 65 workers on site and expects to have 200 people working on site by the end of the year. The project includes construction of the desalination plant, an 84km transfer pipeline and underground power. Morwell-based company RTL has been awarded a $10 million contract to complete earth works. The project is designed to provide 150 billion litres of Melbourne’s water by the end of 2011.
