(4/6) Head contractor for pipeline project appointed

The pipeline project has reached an important milestone with Perth based Georgiou Group appointed as head contractor.

At least $4.8 million will be invested in the Great Southern region by utilising local subcontractors and sourcing materials locally for the project, helping to create Western Australian jobs. This is in addition to incidental spending on accommodation, hospitality and other minor work that will complement the project.

The new pipeline will connect Denmark to the Lower Great Southern Towns Water Supply Scheme (LGSTWSS), which currently supplies drinking water to Albany, Mt Barker, Kendenup and Narrikup. It will secure Denmark’s long term water supply.

The project is on track to deliver a long term water supply solution for Denmark in less than 18 months with construction expected to begin in July 2020.
