DUBLIN, Ireland - Veolia Ireland has won a new contract with Irish Water which includes a €2.16 million upgrade of the wastewater infrastructure at Kingscourt, County Cavan.
The new contract will upgrade the Kingscourt Water Treatment Plant to ensure compliance with the Water Framework Directive and 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 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.”
