Metal Maintenance is a lead supplier for maintenance and plants support to Veolia Water Australia with long term contracts for maintenance, cleaning and painting.
The company maintains the plant in “hot–standby” for the Gold Coast Desalination Plant as required by the Qld Government.
“The Gold Coast Desalination Plant is a 125 ML/d (46 gigalitres per year) reverse osmosis, water desalination plant located in Bilinga, a seaside suburb of the Gold Coast, in Queensland, Australia. It supplies water to the South East Queensland region via the South East Queensland Water Grid.
The plant first supplied water to the grid in February 2009. Seqwater owns the plant and is operated by Veolia. As of Summer 2020/2021, the plant is operating at maximum production capacity.
Water supplies in southeast Queensland reached very low levels during Australia’s ‘Millennium drought’, primarily from 2003 to 2009. The region’s major water storage reached around 50% of capacity in mid-2005 and 20% in mid-2007. In response to this worsening situation, we proposed a range of water infrastructure projects to bolster supplies in southeast Queensland.
The Gold Coast City Council initially developed a plan for a 55 ML/day desalination plant during 2005., which was anticipated to cost around $260 million. However, due to worsening drought conditions, in 2006, the Queensland Government joined with the Gold Coast to expand the plan to a 133 ML/day plant that could share the output with the entire region. The Queensland Government contributed $869 million to the expanded project, which was to be developed through a 50:50 joint venture.”

“The Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme, a recycled water project, is located in the South East region of Queensland in Australia. The scheme that WaterSecure manages is a crucial part of the SEQ Water Grid constructed by the Queensland Government in response to population growth, climate change and severe drought. The A$2.5 billion project is reported as the largest recycled water project in Australia.
The Western Corridor is the area from Brisbane’s southwest suburbs towards the city of Ipswich. For many years the corridor has experienced significant population growth with the development of the suburb of Springfield and the resultant extension of the Centenary Highway and the upgrade to the Ipswich Motorway.
The scheme involved the construction of three advanced water treatment plants constructed at Bundamba, Luggage Point and Gibson Island, which draw water from six existing wastewater treatment plants in the region to produce up to 232 megalitres of purified recycled water daily. The water is distributed via a network of pipelines measuring more than 200 kilometres in length. Construction began on the Recycled Water Project in 2006 and was completed in late 2008. A$408 million of funding was provided by the Australian Government via its Water Smart Australia Program.
In Stage 1 of the project, the scheme has provided an alternative water source for Swanbank Power Station and both Tarong Power Station and Tarong North Power Station. Supplies to Swanbank started in 2007, and supplies to Tarong and Tarong North started in June 2008.
The system can provide water to other industrial users and agricultural users and supplement drinking water supplies in Wivenhoe Dam. Testing of the pipeline to Wivenhoe Dam has been conducted, however in November 2008, Premier Anna Bligh declared that recycled water would not enter the dam unless levels drop to below 40%. As of May 2009, the three power stations are the main customers of the recycled water, consuming 112 megalitres per day.
Since coming online in August 2007, through to July 2010, the Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme has supplied more than 37 thousand megalitres of water into the SEQ Water Grid.”

Clean water is a fundamental human right. Reverse osmosis makes it possible!
Access to clean and safe water is a fundamental human right, yet millions of people worldwide suffer from a shortage of freshwater. Desalination is the process of removing salt and other minerals from seawater or brackish water to produce freshwater. One of the most popular desalination methods is reverse osmosis, which uses semi-permeable membranes to filter out salt and other impurities. In this essay, we will explore the technology behind reverse osmosis in desalination plants.
What is Reverse Osmosis? Reverse osmosis (RO) is a process of removing dissolved minerals, salts, and other impurities from water by applying pressure to force water molecules through a semi-permeable membrane. This membrane allows water molecules to pass through but blocks the passage of larger molecules such as salt, bacteria, and viruses. RO is commonly used in the desalination of seawater, but it is also used in producing ultrapure water for industrial applications, such as electronics and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
How does Reverse Osmosis work in Desalination Plants? Desalination plants that use RO technology typically consist of several stages of filtration, including pretreatment, high-pressure pumping, and post-treatment. The first stage involves pretreatment to remove large particles and impurities from the seawater. The seawater is then pressurized and passed through a series of membranes that filter out salt and other minerals. The purified water is collected, while the concentrated saltwater is discharged back into the ocean.
The Role of Semi-permeable Membranes in Reverse Osmosis: Semi-permeable membranes are the heart of the RO process. These membranes are made of a thin film containing microscopic pores, allowing water molecules to pass through but blocking larger molecules such as salt and other impurities. The effectiveness of the RO process depends on the quality and condition of the membranes. Over time, membranes can become fouled with salt, bacteria, and other impurities, reducing their efficiency and lifespan.
Benefits of Reverse Osmosis: Reverse osmosis technology offers several benefits for desalination plants.
- It is a cost-effective method of producing freshwater compared to other desalination methods.
- RO technology is relatively easy to operate and maintain, requiring less energy compared to other desalination methods.
- RO produces high-quality freshwater that meets or exceeds the World Health Organization (WHO) standards for drinking water.
Challenges of Reverse Osmosis: While reverse osmosis is an effective method of desalination, it also poses some challenges. One of the main challenges is the high energy requirement for the process. Reverse osmosis requires a significant amount of energy to create the high-pressure needed to force seawater through the membranes. The second challenge is the disposal of concentrated saltwater. The concentrated brine can have a negative impact on marine life if it is not properly disposed of.
Reverse osmosis technology has revolutionized the desalination industry, making it possible to produce freshwater from seawater on a large scale. The process involves using semi-permeable membranes to filter out salt and other impurities from seawater, producing high-quality freshwater. Reverse osmosis is cost-effective, easy to operate and maintain, and produces high-quality freshwater that meets or exceeds WHO standards. However, it also poses some challenges, including high energy requirements and proper disposal of concentrated brine. Nonetheless, reverse osmosis can be a game-changer in solving the global water crisis with proper management and technology.
