Desalination Plant

The Southern Seawater Desalination Plant is designed to produce 100 billion litres of water per year. Arcadia was involved with head contractor Lucas Contracting on this project which was named 2011 Project of the Year by the Australian Institute of Project Management.

The Acoustic design criterion was extremely stringent due to its close proximity to a local township. With tested acoustic louvre systems and experience, Arcadia was selected to be involved through the design process to ensure Louvre systems would meet the required noise reduction whilst allowing the required airflow.

Arcadias Hush® extruded aluminium louvre was selected for such an extremely corrosive environment. Extruded aluminium allows higher grade anodise finish and durability to the louvre finish. The project incorporated over 600m2 of Hush® 300 and 1250m2 of Hush® 600 Louvre. Large premade panels manufactured in our Australian production facility enabled speed of delivery, and reduced installation time.
