In a significant step forward to use the technology on a mass scale, F CUBED and the District Council of Ceduna have signed an $8 million agreement to supply pure, clean drinking water to Ceduna West using breakthrough Carocell solar desalination technology.
This project is expected to begin later this year and will see an 11.5 hectare Carocell solar desalination farm established west of Ceduna at Denial Bay.
The farm will produce approximately 200 million litres of pure drinking water per year and 6000 tonnes of salts – with no waste brine. The water will be supplied directly to homes in west Ceduna through the council owned pipe infrastructure.
The project will help the Council meet its obligation under a deed signed with the State Government in 1996 to provide local consumers with an alternative supply of water.
In addition, there are the potential employment and economic benefits for Ceduna in terms of constructing and running the farm and the sale of bottled water and salts.
This project will be an example of how the Carocell technology can be applied across Australia and the globe.
