Leixlip Water Treatment Plant supplies approximately 30% of the Greater Dublin Area’s water supply and is a critical piece of infrastructure serving residents and supporting economic growth across the city.
Murphy designed, constructed and commissioned an 80MLD expansion of the plant to meet growing demand and also completed extensive upgrade and integration works within the existing facility. The project increased overall production capacity at the plant to 255MLD.
