Project Description

A water processing system R&D prototype project that aims to test the feasibility of a water efficiency system technology (WatNos) developed by CIT, in combination with Irish Water and Cork CoCo, for trial testing in the Lee Road Water Treatment Plant. The technology aims to avoid high electricity tariffs, optimise energy usage and CO2 emissions, and enable significant system monitoring through determining future water pumping (load) scheduling and modelling of future climate impact on water reservoir levels. The results of the trial will inform the future commercial development of the technology.
