Bray Shanganagh Wastewater Treatment Plant
SDD Joint Venture / Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and Bray Town Council
RPS provided Civil and Architectural design services for this high performing, sustainable wastewater facility providing a safe, hygienic environment with successful integration into the surrounding landscape.
The Shanganagh Bray Waste Water Treatment Plant, one of the largest in Ireland, has capacity to treat effluent from a 186,000 population equivalent and the potential to increase capacity to 248,000 in the future for a large conurbation on the Dublin/ Wicklow border.
RPS provided civil and architectural design services on the €98.5m project, which involved the upgrading of the existing Shanganagh Wastewater Treatment Works to provide high level secondary treatment, and the laying of a pipeline from Bray Pumping Station to the new Shanganagh plant to bring wastewater for treatment.
The Shanganagh Bray Waste Water Treatment Plant brings to an end the discharge of untreated wastewater into the Irish Sea and safeguards and protects water quality at Killiney Beach and Bray Strand to meet EU standards. It represents ‘state of the art’ innovative technology in wastewater and sludge treatment, energy recovery and environmental management to standards which set new benchmarks for excellence for such plants in Ireland.
