Western Australia represents one-third of the Australian continent, covering 2.5 million square kilometres. The State has experienced record levels of investment in infrastructure to meet the needs of industry and a growing population.
A key priority is strategic infrastructure, encompassing the sustainable supply of power and water services to industry, businesses and communities in the face of physical and economic challenges.
A number of Water Corporation projects present attractive opportunities for investors.
The corporation operates 106 wastewater treatment plants across the State.
About 80 per cent of the wastewater collected and treated throughout the State occurs in the Perth metropolitan area at our three largest wastewater treatment plants - Woodman Point, Beenyup and Subiaco.
Two other large capacity wastewater treatment plants are being developed to support Perth's expanding population.
North of Perth is the Alkimos Wastewater Treatment Plant, which began operation in 2011. It will be expanded over time to reach a capacity of 160 million litres a day.
The East Rockingham Wastewater Treatment Plant construction has been completed and began operations in February 2016. Initial capacity will be 20 million litres a day, but it will be expanded to reach a capacity of 160 million litres a day.
We beneficially use 100 per cent of produced biosolids in the metropolitan area for a range of purposes including agricultural and forestry.
Western Power is undertaking a number of major energy projects to facilitate Western Australia’s future development.
Perth projects include the Mid West Energy Project which will provide the capacity to meet increasing demand for electricity and facilitate the connection of power generators to the network.
As the regional and remote electricity provider for Western Australia, Horizon Power undertakes work right across their service area to ensure their customers receive safe and reliable power supplies.
