ESB Networks will today (Friday, 13 December) complete the final stage of a €1m investment programme to upgrade the electricity infrastructure in the  Cavan / Monaghan area. 

The works, which have taken place over the past eight weeks, involved upgrades and improvements to over 216km of overhead networks from Cavan town to Clones including Ballyhaise and Scotshouse. The project will improve system voltage and strengthen the electricity network, considerably enhancing security of supply for existing customers. 

Up to 40 highly skilled ESB Network Technicians from Cavan, Monaghan and Longford were deployed on the project.

Over the past decade, ESB Networks has invested over €6billion in upgrading Ireland’s electricity network. This has significantly improved network reliability and efficiency, supporting both local communities and the national drive for inward investment in industry and jobs.

ESB continues to be a major innovator and investor in critical Irish national and local infrastructure, investing over €750m annually in energy assets and pioneering new technologies to drive performance and efficiency. In a recent study of global utilities by IBM, Ireland was ranked as having the third most advanced smart network in the world in terms of servicing customer needs today and anticipating future needs.
