At a packed Burlington Hotel last night EPS, along with 100 other finalists, competed across 22 award categories. EPS competed in the Green Energy Award Category and were up against Dublin Fire Brigade, Energia, Eurotech Energy, Frontline Energy, Irish Cement, Resource Kraft and Thermasol. Despite the very stiff competition the innovative Bio-crack sludge conditioning package installed at both Dundalk and Drogheda WWTPs took the award.
Dr Greg Lavery (Lavery/Pennell, London), one of the judges who commented on our submission stated, “The stand out winner in my mind is EPS with its bio-cracking unit, an innovative solution that demonstrates ground breaking leadership in the field of green energy, and you can quote me on that”.
EPS also made the shortlist of the top five winners for the overall award but narrowly lost out to an excellent project by Coláiste Choilm Post Primary School. There were 23 judges in total, 16 of which were international, which highlights the significance of our success and win. Congratulations to all involved in this team effort. This is an excellent achievement for all concerned and also for our supporting partners in SEAI and Enterprise Ireland.
