Process Description & Equipment Supplied
Monaghan County Council is responsible for the provision of waste water treatment facilities in Co Monaghan. In this context it seeks innovative methods of treating waste water through SRC Willow plantations whilst encouraging the growth of a renewable energy source in form of wood chip biomass. In 2009 Monaghan County Council made a successful application to the SEUPB to carry out an Interreg IVA project. The SEUPB in Northern Ireland and the Border region of Ireland and western Scotland (Interreg IVA Programme) is a distinctive European Structural Funds programme Monaghan county council’s Project “SRC willows” is designed to help meet the aims outlined above.
The main thrust of the overall project is to use SRC Willow on local farms, irrigated with partially treated domestic waste water from Clontibret & Knockatallon Sewage treatment works (STWs). This over a 10‐year period will provide Biomass for heating/power generation on a cyclical basis. Our full scope included the design, provision and commissioning of all associated controls and Mechanical and electrical packages for the project.
