Sequence of construction leading to the completion and 7-day testing period of the Selector tank.
- Stage 1: Installation of temporary works as per the approved design complete with rescue system complied of Davit Arm, rescue stretcher, gas monitors and 10 minute breathing Apparatus kits.
- Stage 2: Excavation of the earthworks and construction of the 8m x 4m base slab c/w 150mm kickers.
- Stage 3: Erection of the approved temporary works as per the design for the 3m high tank walls c/w 2 no. cast in-situ 500mm diameter DI pipes.
- Stage 4: Following the 18m3 concrete pour and curing time, the shutters were stripped and tie-bar sleeves grouted in preparation for the 7 day testing period as per CESWI 7th edition. The total allowable drop in water level is 10mm or 1/500 tank depth, which equated to 6mm for Cleantech.
- Stage 5: Testing, the Selector tank underwent a 7-day testing period after being filled with water. The entire tank was covered to prevent any rainfall entering and the water level was monitored and recorded daily. The tank passed the test with a drop of 3mm in total.
- Stage 6: Backfilling around the perimeter of the tank was then 80 % completed and the perimeter secured off awaiting the construction of the new PST-ASF channel adjacent to it.#CleantechCivils #CivilEngineering #Construction #SelectorTank #TestPeriod
Successful completion of #Aghada 220kV Power Generating Station Reconfiguration. This substation is considered, to be one of Ireland’s most important generation and transmission stations, due to the number generators connected to the station and the number and voltage of the circuits connected.
Works involved in the Reconfiguration of Aghada included
- #Construction of a new 5 .0 m wide and approximately 150m long on plan access road to the station;
- Construction on the new F9 wing coupler bay, consisting of 5 pairs of bases for the new steelwork support supporting the 200 mm tubular busbar;
- Construction of a new single storey control building (32m x 8.2m) with a flat roof and a 1.6 m high masonry parapet wall, including new storm water drainage with soak away and new foul drainage system;
- Replacement of the existing chainlink fence around the whole station with a new 2.6 m high palisade fence;
- Construction of approx. 35 concrete bases to support circuit breakers, 18m high lighting monopoles, control and protection kiosks etc.
- Construction of new concrete/block work block ducts. Overall length of new ducting is approx. 475m long

The Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards, held in association with ESB, are presented in recognition of the achievements of engineers that have demonstrated exceptional engineering skills.
The Excellence Awards ceremony took place on Friday 10 November at the InterContinental Dublin.
Shorted Listed in the category of Geoscience Ireland Award – Cleantech Civils project CSO Material Re-Use Strategy. Our project demonstrates a desire to innovate and improve each and every project.
Congratulations, to all the Team for their innovation and excellent work on the project!
3 stages of the Inlet Works Construction at Neilston, this is the main section of the project.
- Firstly, an image of the Inlet Works pre-start. This area was to be reduced in level by approx. 3.5m to meet the existing levels of the Detritor tanks.
- Upon completion of the bulk excavation, the area was brought down to formation level, sub-base installed and compacted, blinded with 100mm deep of 35N concrete.
- For the construction of the base slab, Cleantech fixed 11 tonnes of steel and poured 26 m3 of 35N concrete to design levels via a 24m concrete pump.
Works are ongoing!

An emergency rescue drill was carried out today at Kingscourt Water Treatment Plant (Construction of new concrete reservoir)
The scenario was that our concrete finisher Joe hurt his ankle while working inside the new reservoir.
The alarm was raised and the first aiders attended the scene.
It was a suspected sprain so an emergency rescue was carried out in order to get Joe safely out of the reservoir which is 6.0m deep.
We used our Davit arm & stretcher system as part of our emergency rescue plan.
The emergency drill was seamless. Everybody responded immediately and over all, it was a great success.
The operatives involved were members of Cleantech and our formwork subcontractor also.
Special thanks to everybody who got involved, especially Joe who played the casualty during the drill.
