Irish Water awards 20-year deal to Veolia
Optimised resource management company Veolia has won a 20-year contract with Irish Water. The deal includes an €18.4M upgrade in wastewater infrastructure in Co Donegal.
The design, build and operation contract is for the upgrading of the facility at Convoy and building three new facilities at Killybegs, Bundoran, and Glencolumbkille.
In total the facilities will be able to treat 20,700 person equivalents (p.e) of wastewater and include the upgrade of pumping stations and improved sewage network. The new contract will ensure the EU Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive standards are met.
Construction is scheduled to start in the spring, and is scheduled for completion in two years’ time.
Pat Gilroy, country director at Veolia Ireland, said, “Helping Ireland to manage its precious natural resources is our priority for 2016. Together we will work with Irish Water to support this upgrade in waste water treatment infrastructure which also builds in increased capacity to allow for economic growth.”
