Mobile Water Treatment

As a pioneer in water treatment technology, Cantwell Electrical Engineering’s innovative Mobile Water Treatment Plant is the first of its kind in Ireland in terms of capacity and function. The plant is capable of comprehensive water treatment and is instantly ready to deploy in the event of an emergency water incident.

The flexibility of our mobile water treatment technology makes it particularly suitable in the event of water supply emergencies; however use of this portable plant is not exclusive to unforeseen events. It has also be used to aid on-going water maintenance on a site, to supplement water loss caused by line breakages and contamination and to cater to large public events that require a considerable water supply – one recent example being the use of the Plant at the Ploughing Championship in Wexford Sept 2012. Here we treated all the water supplied to the site which was required for human consumption, food preparation, beverage stalls, etc.
