Veolia and Irish Water sign waste water infrastructure contract for Kingscourt

Posted: Tuesday 14th June 2016

Veolia, the global leader in optimised resource management, has won a new contract with Irish Water which includes a E2.16 million upgrade of the waste water infrastructure at Kingscourt, County Cavan. The work will enhance the performance of the plant to treat the increased demand over the next few years, provide better use of resources, and boost local sustainability.

The County Development plan recognises that provision of high quality efficient water services will contribute to the long-term environmental and economic development of the County. To support this aim the new contract will upgrade the Kingscourt Water Treatment Plant to improve quality and resilience, and ensure compliance with the Water Framework Directive. It will also help meet the needs of the County's expanding population which is estimated to be over 108,000 by 2026.

Under the contract Veolia will deliver a wide range of solutions including borehole pumping, direct coagulation process with two stage dual media granular filtration, chlorination, orthophosphoric dosing for plumbosolvency control​ and UV disinfection. The service will be delivered by Veolia's local engineering team and is expected to begin in June 2016, starting with a 15 month construction phase and followed by an operating contract.

Niall Gleeson, Managing 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."
