Can you tell us more about Tricel?
Tricel was created 1973 in Killarney and was first known as Killarney Plastics. From our beginnings as a small fibreglass company, Tricel is today a family led global provider of high-performance, innovation-based solutions for the Water, Environmental, Construction and Distribution industries.
How does Tricel specialise for the Irish construction sector?
The Environmental division of Tricel has developed four wastewater treatment solutions suitable for the Irish market. They are suitable for primary, secondary & tertiary treatment of the wastewater. Our range is also suitable for both domestic and commercial projects.
Our best seller is the Tricel Novo wastewater treatment plant. Made of SMC in our factory in Killarney, the Novo is lightweight, durable and robust. The installation is easy and can be done with small machinery. For the homeowners, the running costs are low and so is the maintenance. Finally, for peace of mind the Novo is certified EN12566-3.
Finally, the Sandcel sand polishing filter was designed following the EPA Code of Practice. This sand polishing filter has a small footprint, and is under or overground and is made of GRP panels which won’t decay over time.
What other services does Tricel provide?
For the Irish Site Assessors, Engineers and Architects, Tricel has developed a tool/website to generate free wastewater site recommendation reports: tricelsiteassessor.ie.
The aim is for the users to save time and generate bespoke and detailed reports ready to be incorporated directly into the planning applications of their customers/clients. All information provided complies with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Code of Practice and all products specified are certified to European standards EN12566- 3, EN12566-1 and S.R.66.
What recent projects have you been involved in?
With the recent changes linked to Covid-19, like all businesses we have changed and adapted our processes and deliveries. Our main focus is to ensure our customers and employees are safe.
Some of the projects from the beginning of 2020 included a few big projects in the West/Northwest of Ireland in one of the National Parks. We have also sold our first tank to Dubai and we are developing a strong partnership with a distributor for the Caribbean Islands, French Guyana and in the Indian Ocean. All this is done from Killarney. We are as well strongly positioned in Ireland and always looking for new opportunities.
