New Irish Water deal for Veolia Ireland
Optimised resource management company Veolia has secured a new contract with Irish Water for works on Ireland's largest water treatment plant at the Ballymore Eustace Facility.
The contract includes a wide range of new plant and upgrades designed to ensure that the facility’s sludge treatment operation can support increasing demand.
The Ballymore Eustace WTW treats and supplies the water network serving the Greater Dublin area. To accommodate both municipal and industrial growth, the new works will assist in ensuring the facility can safely supply the 400Ml daily processing capacity of the works.
Under the contract, Veolia will be responsible for the design, construction, commissioning, testing, and maintenance of the sludge treatment plant. During the design and construction phase, Veolia will deliver a new sludge de-watering system, thermal sludge dryer, and sludge storage and handling facilities.
Refurbishment works will also upgrade grit removal, filtration, thickening and ancillary equipment. Greater automation and monitoring capabilities for the new installations will be gained from a new site SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system.
Niall Gleeson, managing director at Veolia Ireland, said: “This latest contract demonstrates how we can help Ireland to manage its precious natural resources and deliver greater sustainability. By working with Irish Water to upgrade this critical water treatment infrastructure we will be able to assist in ensuring the greater Dublin area’s water needs are met now and into the future.”
Following the installation phase of the contract Veolia will be responsible for commissioning, testing, and maintenance of the sludge treatment plant. This will help meet the growing demand and improve resilience.
