PERMANENT EXCLUSION ZONE – Adelaide Desalination Plant

Six marker buoys have been installed to mark the boundaries of a permanent exclusion zone that came into effect on Monday 15th August 2011.

Each of the marker buoys will be lit, yellow in colour, with a St Andrews topmark and a range of 3 nautical miles. Co-ordinates are in WGS 84 datum:

No 1. 35 degrees 05′ 48.05″ S, 138 degrees 28′ 21.11″ E. Flashing Yellow every 3 secs.

No 2. 35 degrees 05′ 39.75″ S, 138 degrees 28′ 07.53″ E Flashing Yellow (2) every 10 secs.

No 3. 35 degrees 05′ 31.45″ S, 138 degrees 27′ 59.95″ E. Flashing Yellow every 5 secs.

No 4. 35 degrees 05′ 15.83″ S, 138 degrees 28′ 08.08″ E. Flashing Yellow every 5 secs.

No 5. 35 degrees 05′ 24.13″ S, 138 degrees 28′ 21.65″ E. Flashing Yellow (2) every 10 secs.

No 6. 35 degrees 05′ 32.43″ S, 138 degrees 28′ 35.23″ E. Flashing Yellow every 3 secs.

Marine and tunnelling works for the new Adelaide Desalination Plant are now complete with the installation of the ‘duck bill’ diffuser heads onto the outfall risers and the pre-cast concrete intake structure both located on the sea floor. Outfall and intake tunnels are now flooded and permanent undersea marine monitoring equipment is now in place and operational.

The temporary exclusion zone that has been in place during construction is replaced with the smaller permanent exclusion zone for operational requirements
