- Wonthaggi Desalination Plant
Page Steel Fabrications was the first fabricator chosen to
fabricate the Iconic Victorian Desalination project. The reverse
osmosis ( R.O ) building was the largest building on the site. The
complexity R.O building's design was led by the existance of the
"Living Roof". This structure was connected to the facilities roof
and facilitated the planting of vegetation to help the R.O building
blend into it's environment. Large Spans, crane beams, trussed
columns, sound proofed roof, living roof coupled with high wind
loads and a corrosive enviroment presented many challenges that had
been sucessfuly overcome. The design brief required Page Steel
fabrication's to accuralty nomiante all material heat certifcates,
and welder qualifcations per each specifc member on the project.
This was accomplished by updating Page Steel's Barcoding software
to track all heat certifactes through the manufacturing process.
TDJV required every load of steel to list each item with material
heat number/employee name against each individual item. 8000 pages
of Quality Assurance documents had been submitted by the time the
project was completed.
