Irish Water Fleet

Irish Water has invested in 56 new work vans which will be delivered to Donegal County Council water services department in a phased basis over the next three months. (L-R): Paul Mahon, Ervia Fleet Management; Kevin Love, Irish Water; Martina Fox, Irish Water; and Paul Lyons, Donegal County Council.


Irish Water is upgrading the fleet of water services vans operating in County Donegal as part of its ongoing strategy to improve the service delivered to customers. This included the delivery of six new work vehicles to Donegal County Council last week. In total 56 new vehicles will be delivered to Donegal in a phased basis over the coming three months.


The provision of these new vehicles will help ensure water services staff continue to deliver an efficient and reliable service to our customers.


The new vehicles will be operated by Donegal County Council on behalf of Irish Water, and will be used for the maintenance and upkeep of the water networks across the county, in routine, reactive and emergency situations.


Kevin Love, Irish Water’s Asset Operations Lead for Co Donegal, commented: “We are delighted to be in a position to hand over these new vehicles to Donegal County Council. This investment in modern, efficient vehicles will enable personnel to carry out their work in a safe and efficient manner, ultimately improving the service we offer to our customers. This investment is in line with Irish Water’s commitment to developing a systematic approach to the operation and maintenance of the water and wastewater networks in order to continue to deliver a quality service to all our customers.”


Paul Lyons, Senior Executive Engineer with Donegal County Council added: “We are very pleased to take delivery of these new service vehicles. Having efficient, modern vehicles will ensure that our staff can continue to provide top class delivery of water services to the people of Donegal.”

Irish Water, in partnership with local authorities, is investing in upgrading its fleet nationally. This is essential in order to deliver on our commitment to deliver quality, fit-for-purpose water and wastewater services for all our customers.
