PROJECT SUMMARY

De-Salination

Symbiotic water supply and landscape regeneration

The project reuses the warmed saltwater rejected from power plants in a mixed use infrastructure for low-cost desalination to supply water to Dublin’s growing population.

The water discharge establishes a brine aerosol microclimate – the ideal conditions for the generation of salt marsh gardens, extending the nature reserve and preserving the timber structure. The same water source warms a public swimming pool on the roof top via heat exchangers.
