Ireland will be monitoring the quality of coastal water with the combination of satellite observations and data from ocean buoys.
The European Space Agency (ESA), Ireland’s TechWorks Marine and Greece's Planetek Hellas are working together to deliver timely, high-quality information for water and waste management operators.
The project will not only improve water quality, but also provides a new opportunity for growth in Ireland.
Initial service trials will be run in northwest Ireland's Donegal Bay, where Veolia operates a large waste water treatment facility.
Trials will also take place in the Middle East, where they operate major desalination facilities.
