Featured Project Examples
Leixlip Water Treatment Plant
TOBIN Consulting Engineers was appointed as Client’s Representative for the Stage 5 expansion of the Leixlip Water Treatment Plant.
The expansion, with a capital cost of approximately €30 million, included the construction of a state of the art “stand-alone” facility, on a site adjacent to the existing treatment infrastructure with a capacity of 80Ml/d plant which, when combined with the existing facilities (175Mld), brought the total potential peak capacity of the entire plant to 225Ml/d.
Greater Dublin Drainage
The Greater Dublin Drainage project is a proposed new regional wastewater treatment facility including an underground orbital sewer from Blanchardstown to Clonshaugh, a new pumping station at Abbotsown, a partial diversion of the north fringe sewer, and an outfall pipeline to return the treated water to the Irish Sea at the townland of Clonshaugh in North County Dublin.
Dundalk Wastewater Treatment Plant
