EPS and Sisk JV to build treatment works for Irish Water

A joint venture between EPS and Sisk Construction has won the contract to design and build the 65,000 population equivalent wastewater treatment facility at Shanbally for Irish Water. The facility, which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2017, will serve the Cork Lower Harbour area.

EPS will further operate the facility for up to nine years on behalf of Irish Water.

The treatment facility which forms part of the overall near €100m investment by Irish Water in the Lower Harbour region will treat sewage from Cobh, Carrigaline (including Crosshaven), Passagewest, Monkstown (including Glenbrook) and Ringaskiddy( including Shanbally and Coolmore). 

Jim Palmer, technical director  at EPS, commented: "EPS/Sisk JV are delighted to be part of this overall strategic project which will bring significant environmental, social and economic benefit to the region and Cork in general. The joint venture team look forward to working with Irish Water and Cork County Council in the successful delivery of the project." 

Pat Lucey, director of Civil Engineering for Sisk, added: "EPS and Sisk share a commitment to collaborative working with partners, clients and stakeholders for the benefit of the project and the wider community. It is exciting to be associated with this flagship project for the Cork area."

The chosen treatment technology for the project is a process known as Nereda. The facility in Lower Harbour is only the third project under construction in Ireland or the UK that will utilise Nereda. 

EPS, as the licensee for Nereda in Ireland, has a co-operation agreement with global engineering consultancy Royal Haskoning DHV for the delivery of Nereda in Ireland.

To date, the EPS/Royal Haskoning DHV partnership has delivered a plant at Clonakilty in west Cork and are completing one in Carrigtwohill in County Cork.
