Waterways Ireland have produced an excellent video promoting their work in Green WIN at Richmond Harbour which is one of the sites selected by Waterways Ireland as part of the Green WIN project.

Located on the Royal Canal in the Republic of Ireland, the pump at Richmond Harbour extracts water from the Camlin river to supply water for the canal. With the installation of a newer, more efficient pump, as well as the use of additional measurement instrumentation, Waterways Ireland hopes to reduce its energy consumption and associated carbon emissions.

In early October, Green WIN partners are in the UK to visit one of the Canal & River Trust trial sites at Caen Hill, on the Kennet & Avon Canal in Wiltshire. The spectacular Caen Hill lock flight is the longest continuous flight of locks in the country and it’s clear when you see this sight just how important efficient pumping is.
