Ensuring better service delivery for customers in Inishturk and Clare Island
Two new work vehicles have been delivered to Mayo County Council
We have delivered two new work vehicles to Mayo County Council as part of our ongoing strategy to improve the service delivered to customers on Inishturk and Clare Island.
The provision of these new on road/off road vehicles will help ensure staff working on the two islands continue to deliver an efficient and reliable service to our customers in greater safety, while at the same time significantly reducing overall operating costs.
The new vehicles will be operated by Mayo County Council on behalf of Irish Water, and will be used for the maintenance and upkeep of the water networks on both islands, in routine, reactive and emergency situations.
Our fleet team collaborated with fleet suppliers, Mayo County Council and Local Authority staff to develop a fit for purpose vehicle specification that would meet all operational requirements. This resulted in the selection of an on road/off road type utility vehicle as the most suitable for operation on these islands.
Our commitment to deliver quality, fit-for-purpose water and wastewater services
Ger Greally, Irish Water’s Operations Lead for Mayo, commented “We are delighted to be in a position to hand over these two new vehicles to Mayo County Council. This investment in modern, efficient vehicles will enable personnel to carry out their work in a much safer and more 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.”
Iarla Moran, Head of Water Services with Mayo 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 Inishturk and Clare Island.”
