Inchigeelagh Sewerage Scheme, Cork

At a Glance

Glan Agua, working for Uisce Éireann in partnership with Cork County Council, delivered this project which involved the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant and sewerage infrastructure. This was to eliminate the discharge of untreated wastewater into the River Lee. Glan Agua was aware that Relinea can offer a vast range of GRP Products for the Water and Sewage Treatment Industries that outperform traditional materials and deliver highly durable solutions at a much lower cost. We were brought on board this project to install our GRP handrails, stairs, and access platforms.

Glan Agua wanted a cost-effective, anti-corrosive, safe solution. As the water treatment plant was next to the sea, they knew steel would be too corrosive and prone to rust. GRP was also a much less costly material than steel.


GRP was the preferred choice of material for the project for a number of reasons. As a material GRP offers a multitude of benefits, including warm to the touch, non-corrosive, and high strength-to-weight ratio. Our GRP products also require little to no maintenance. There is no need for costly re-painting to prevent rust, saving both valuable time and money.

GRP is warm to the touch, this is an important factor to consider for handrails and steps that are being used in outdoor contexts. As they are not subject to cold, or extreme heat, they are much safer to climb. GRP offers an exceptionally hard-wearing, slip-resistant surface.

Our access platforms are manufactured using GRP pultruded profiles, which produce lightweight, chemically resistant, easily installed solutions. GRP handrails are an extremely durable and cost-effective alternative to steel, and they are ideal for outdoor, industrial, and commercial applications.
