Desal view-3.jpgFYTOGREEN AUSTRALIA PTY LTD is currently delivering its $4.3 million contract to supply the biggest green roof in Australia for the Victorian Desalination Project near Wonthaggi.

The project will generate employment in the local area, where Fytogreen will employs local staff. Plant cuttings and seed collection are based on provenance criteria, whereby all species are indigenous to the local environment.

The green roof forms part of the desalination plant's sophisticated roof system, designed to blend the plant into the landscape, provide acoustic protection, corrosion resistance, thermal control and reduced building maintenance.

"Fytogreen Australia is delighted to have been chosen in this competitive tender", said Geoff Heard, Fytogreen's Managing Director. "Because of our continual improvement and research and development endeavours over the years, we can deliver this important project that will help meet the Victorian Government's objective to integrate the plant into the coastal landscape," he said.

The Victorian Desalination Project will be delivered by AquaSure, with Thiess Degrémont as the design and construction contractor. The project is scheduled for completion in December 2011.
