Award success for RSK business Nicholas O’Dwyer

December 07, 2021

RSK business Nicholas O’Dwyer is celebrating after being shortlisted for a prestigious engineering excellence award following its work on a €150 million capital project in Cork, Ireland.

It comes after the Cork Lower Harbour Main Drainage Project was recognised as the winner of the Engineering Infrastructure category of the Engineers Ireland Engineering Excellence Digital Series, which means the project is now in the running for the Engineering Endeavour of the Year award for 2021.

Nicholas O’Dwyer was the engineering services provider on this major Irish Water project, which connected 20,000 homes and businesses to the drainage scheme and ended the practice of discharging the equivalent of 40,000 wheelie bins of raw sewage into Cork Harbour every day.

The project has also greatly improved the amenity value of the Cork Lower Harbour for the surrounding communities of Ringaskiddy, Carrigaline, Crosshaven, Passage West, Monkstown and Cobh town.

It is one of five engineering projects that were selected by Engineers Ireland to represent the top engineering initiatives undertaken in the areas of innovation, sustainability, buildings and structures and infrastructure in 2021.

The organisation produced a series of videos to shine a light on the creative ways Ireland’s engineers seek to support and transform society and how the work of engineers behind the projects benefits communities across the world.

Engineers Ireland is encouraging its 25,000 member engineers and the wider public to view the series and vote for their top engineering project for the Engineering Endeavour of 2021 award by noon on Friday, 10 December.

Everyone is encouraged to view the Cork Lower Harbour Main Drainage Project video, which can be found here.

The full series of videos is available on the Engineers Ireland website and then you can vote for your top project in the series.

Please get voting and join us in congratulating all involved in the Cork Lower Harbour Main Drainage Project, and Nicholas O’Dwyer, a key player throughout the project. Well done all!
