The Kildare Wastewater Treatment Plant, Co. Kildare
Client Kildare County Council / Siac Construction.
Value €20 million
Value our Works €2.6 million
Dates Feb 2011 to May 2012

Project Description

This project entailed the construction of a new 20 million waste water treatment plant in the town of Kildare and 15km of 525mm ductile iron effluent pipeline which ran to the River Barrow in Kildangan. We built the outfall pipeline, most of which was laid in busy public roads, and utilising temporary traffic management techniques, we maintained the full flow of traffic at all times. All roads had to be fully reinstated and re-opened to traffic after backfilling. For this scheme, we also constructed all of the process Ductile Iron and Concrete drainage pipes around the tanks. KC also completed all bulk earthworks and concrete blinding operations for all of the treatment tanks. The job was satisfactorily completed in line with the client's requirement.
