Tipperary Mobile Water Treatment Plant Launched

Cantwell Mobile Water Treatment Plant

The highly reputable and successful sister companies, combining Cantwell Quality Water Services Ltd and Cantwell Electrical Engineering Ltd, yesterday privately unveiled their newest piece of engineering equipment, a Mobile Water Treatment Plant, which is the first such plant ever to come on stream here in Ireland.

This new fully Mobile Water Treatment Unit is capable of treating up to 45,000 litres of water per hour and comes complete with it’s own power supply and electrical generator, thus allowing the unit to start operations on arrival at it’s required destination or environmental emergency.

On arrival, this state of the art treatment unit is ready immediately to begin carrying out the following treatments:- Iron and Manganese removal,  UV treatment, Carbon filtration, Ultra Filtration, pH correction and controlled Chlorine treatment.

The company, Cantwell Electrical Engineering Ltd has been successfully trading since 1978, while it’s sister company, Cantwell Quality Water Services Ltd, began trading in early 2010. Both Companies trade from their own business and engineering unit at Graigue, Urlingford, Thurles, Co. Tipperary, offering a non stop 24 hour service.

Cantwell Quality Water Services Ltd, currently supply an estimated 100,000 litres of quality drinking water per hour, to the towns of Foyne’s, Kilcornan, Askeaton, Shanagolden, Killdimo and Creevey’s Cross. This follows the recent pollution, caused by oil, which leaked into the River Deel in Co Limerick, last week and also includes the pumping of water directly from their tankers to serve a number of nursing homes & schools etc. A total of 7 tankers are involved in this operation with a further 5 tankers on reserve if required.

Cantwell Quality Water Services Ltd also supply water to ocean going ships, such as the heavy cargo ships servicing the Aughinish Alumina Ltd, plant, which take 50,000 litres, pumped directly to on board water supply tanks.

Both companies Managing Directors, Simon Cantwell and Ger Cantwell, stated; “This type of new advance technology will now support and ensure that Ireland, as an island nation, will continue to retain it’s already acknowledged green, clean environmental reputation, well into the years ahead.

    Well done to the Cantwell brothers there, a fantastic piece of engineering. Hopefully we will see in the future these apparati operating in disaster zones worldwide providing emergency drinking water(and without the added fluoride too)
