Burrup Seawater Scheme - Water Corporation WA

The Burrup Seawater Scheme is a non-standard asset for the Water Corporation. It is a commercial operation to supply seawater to industrial processing with access to brine wastewater disposal. The scheme services State objectives for industrial growth and consolidated environmental impact management.

WISE developed asset management plans (2014, 2018) to deliver compliance with contractual, legislated and regulatory commitments within the Corporation’s standard asset management framework and software systems.

Integral to the asset management plan was the incorporation of the engineering design criteria which differ from standard water and sewer systems.

Microbial corrosion issues were significantly reducing asset lives. Seawater intake screens exhibited secondary corrosion of the nickel copper alloy material. WISE completed design and construction ITPs review to identify faults, investigated refurbishment options including local fabrication and revised materials & fabrication specifications.

Expansion of the scheme for new industrial customers and a potential potable water desalination plant were preliminary designed in 2020; WISE completed Statement of Operating Intent to inform designers, operators and commercial negotiations (corporate executive).
