Birdhill Firm “In Pole Position” To Service Water Project

Through its base in Birdhill, Komatsu distributor, McHale Plant Sales expects to be in ‘pole position’ to supply plant, service machinery and provide spare parts support to contractors working on the proposed new EUR1.3 billion Shannon water pumping station and pipeline development targeted for construction at Birdhill, if and when the project gets the go-ahead.

The proposed Birdhill development would be a key element in the proposed 170km long water supply and pipeline project put forward by Irish Water that would link the River Shannon from Parteen Basin, Co. Tipperary to Dublin city and other towns along the pipeline route.

The proposal is seen by Irish Water as one that would provide a long-term solution to the increasing need for fresh water resulting from an expected future population growth in Dublin city and the greater Dublin and east coast area.

Commenting from the position of being a leading employer and construction plant distributor, McHale Plant Sales director, John O’Brien said: ‘ours is an industry that has been starved of major infrastructural projects in recent years’.

‘With headquarters in Birdhill housing the excavators, dozers, loaders and crushing machinery that would be used on projects of this nature along with workshop technicians and machine parts facilities provided on-site – McHale Plant Sales is in good position to support the civil works contractors appointed to carry out the extensive site works and pipe-laying work that would be involved if the project gets the go-ahead’ he said.
