Rio Tinto grants Osmoflo a $39 million contract for desalination

Osmoflo has secured a Process Package Contract from Rio Tinto for the Dampier Seawater Desalination Plant, with a value exceeding AUD$60m (approximately US$39 million).

Upon completion, the plant will have the capacity to produce over 4GL/annum (up to 12 ML/day) of drinking water. This initiative is integral to Rio Tinto’s plan to guarantee water security for its operations in the West Pilbara.

Osmoflo will be responsible for the design, procurement, and fabrication of all process equipment, as well as supporting the overall facility’s design, overseeing site installation and commissioning, conducting training for Rio Tinto’s personnel, and providing operational support. The forecast for potable water production is 2026.

Carmine Ciccocioppo, Osmoflo’s Managing Director and CEO, expressed pride in being chosen by Rio as its process contractor for this significant project. He emphasized the importance of securing a sustainable water supply for Rio’s Dampier operations and nearby coastal communities.

This project represents one of Osmoflo’s most substantial undertakings in its nearly 33-year history and aligns closely with its core mission of offering innovative, sustainable, and value-based water solutions that contribute to a circular economy.

The company looks forward to working closely and collaboratively with Rio and its other package contractors to successfully deliver this crucial project, which will ensure a consistent, reliable, and sustainable water supply to key stakeholders and the local community for many years to come.
