The Department is collaborating with the School of Business , Trinity College Dublin and Bangor University in this research. The research project will comprise the development and assessment of space efficient systems of energy recovery for the water industry using micro or pico-hydropower technology. The successful candidate will:
- Carry out background research in the fields of energy recovery, hydropower, water supply & treatment
- Develop and assess prototypes of a space efficient hydro energy recovery systems to replace pressure reducing valves
- Develop design and implementation guidelines for the widespread installation of the developed technology
Applicants with good honours degrees in engineering or a related discipline will be considered. Funding for the MSc research project, commencing preferably in March 2013, is sufficient to cover a student stipend of approximately â¬12,000 p.a. and EU fees for up to two years. Extension of the project to a PhD is a possibility, subject to the availability of new and further funding.
