“First water” video for Victorian desalination plant

The Aquasure consortium building the much delayed Victorian desalination plant for Melbourne, Australia, has released a video to celebrate the production of first water on 30 June 2012.

The Thiess/Degrémont consortium has installed a quarter of approximately 55,000 reverse-osmosis membranes for the plant and expects to produce the plant’s first potable water in late July 2012.

Completion is anticipated at the end of the year.

The video can be seen on YouTube.
