Campion Pumps and Irish Water: Inniscarra Dam Project

Extreme dry weather reduced reservoir levels at Inniscarra to historic lows. The water supply to Cork city, as well as river flows downstream of the hydroelectric dam, were at risk if contingency measures were not put in place. In three weeks, Campion Pumps and Irish Water designed, assembled and successfully deployed a 16-tonne steel plate pontoon pumping arrangement. Anchored to new mooring points on the dam and fitted with three 37kW submersible pumps the emergency arrangement ensured the River Lee kept flowing, fish life was protected and a population of 250,000 plus industry were unaffected.
