Tarong Power Station – Water saving initiative


In June 2020, a comprehensive analysis was conducted by RSGx-Stanwell to identify and implement strategies aimed at diminishing the water loss due to evaporation in the Tarong Cooling Water dam, as well as the Wivenhoe-Tarong pipeline discharge valve.Subsequently, measures were taken to address the evaporation losses caused by the dispersed spray pattern emanating from the discharge valve. This involved the utilization of advanced computational fluid dynamic modelling techniques, as well as the design and manufacture of a specialized confinement shroud. This initiative was carried out with the goal of effectively mitigating evaporation losses.


RSGx’s scope of work included a detailed design of a confinement shroud using computational fluid dynamics and fabrication.
