project description:

The Ballymore Eustace Plant is Ireland’s largest water treatment plant supplying the areas of Dublin City, Kildare, Dún-Laoghaire and South Dublin with up to 318 million litres of water daily. The plant provides quality potable water to the entire non-domestic sector in the region, and close to 1,000,000 domestic consumers (22% of the entire population of Ireland).


The plant has a 400 million litre peak capacity and is the culmination of a 30 year plan designed to provide Dublin with a state of the art, cost effective water supply. The plant is not only capable of meeting the current demands, it can provide for the needs of the greater Dublin area for the medium term until a longer term new source is developed post 2020.


The Civil works, which was substantially completed in 2013, included over 1,500,000 construction man hours, 40,000mof concrete, 5,500 tons of steel and took over 6 years to complete.


The completed plant combines the robust engineering required of a national strategic asset with innovative engineering approaches, resulting in whole life cost value for the water utility provider, Irish Water and their agent Dublin City Council, and the provision of a pristine asset with the capacity to service generations to come.
