Cobh Dockyard Pumpstation Official Opening
Taoiseach Michael Martin officially opened the Cobh Dockyard Pumpstation on Monday 06th September. The opening of the Cork Dockyard Pumping Station marks the end of the raw sewage discharge from Cobh Town into the Lower Harbour. This important milestone means that the overall project is now treating 40,000 wheelie bins of raw sewage daily before its safe discharge into the sea and 20,000 homes are now connected to the new scheme.
The Cobh Network Contract has expanded the sewage network in Cobh Town by building 7km of sewer pipes and 5 new foul pumping stations, so that wastewater is now pumped to Cork Dockyard Pumping Station.
Sorensen are very proud of our site team for achieving this significant milestone, along with our partners Farrans and our wider supply chain.
