Underground utilities mapped at landmark power station in Dublin.

Project Scope

Poolbeg Generating Station is a power station owned and operated by the Electricity Supply Board of Ireland (ESB). There are two stations on the site, the older thermal station containing units 1, 2, and 3 and the combined cycle gas station containing units CG14, CG15 and ST16, which is located toward the eastern end of the site. The six units have a total installed capacity of 1020 MW.

Apex Surveys were commissioned to carry out a topographic and underground utility survey at the station to allow for future development works.
