Solar Powered Eco Hub Proposed For Karratha

Solar Quotes, August 30, 2017

Western Australia’s City of Karratha has provided in-principle support for three business proposals that could see land at the site of Karratha Airport transformed into an eco-hub.

One of the proposed enterprises is the Sahara Forest Project that aims to produce fresh water, food and renewable energy through utilising seawater and harnessing energy from the sun.

Australian company Ecomag’s project is also under consideration for the site. EcoMag intends producing low cost, high purity magnesium compounds from brine waste streams from large scale salt production processes and solar energy.

The third potential project is associated with Rainstorm, a dust control company that has been operating since 1990.

According to City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long, a solar power plant of up to 20MW capacity could be built as part of these projects.
