The Project produced and sold both power and freshwater to the Australian Department of Defence to supply Australia’s largest naval base, HMAS Stirling, located on Garden Island. Our CETO 5 units were installed off Garden Island in late 2014, and the units were operated continuously for 12 months.
The desalination plant was part-funded through a $1.27m AusIndustry grant from the Clean Technology Innovation Program and involved the design and construction of a CETO Desalination Plant which desalinated seawater to produce freshwater.
