DUBLIN, Ireland - Veolia has secured a new contract with Irish Water for works on Ireland’s largest water treatment plant serving the Greater Dublin area, at the Ballymore Eustace Facility.

To accommodate both municipal and industrial growth, the new works will assist in ensuring the facility can safely supply the 400,000 m3/day 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, the company 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.

Following the installation phase of the contract Veolia will be responsible for commissioning, testing, and maintenance of the sludge treatment plant.

Niall Gleeson, managing director at Veolia Ireland, said: “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.”
