Water Systems and Services

The Water Systems and Services Innovation Centre (WSSIC) is located at Nimbus Centre, and is a joint venture with Cork City and Cork County Councils. WSSIC is an expert resource in modernizing Ireland’s water infrastructure by developing state-of-the-art water systems and services. WSSIC is participating in national research projects with the aim of reducing waste and water contamination, and to facilitate water recovery and reuse. WSSIC is also involved in developing systems for flood prevention. The Centre links closely with Irish businesses to innovate and solve recognised water-sector problems. WSSIC acts as the research and development arm of SME companies that do not have the skills or capacity to develop their innovative water ideas.
