Mercury’s TSS & Fire Protection teams recently achieved 12 years without a Lost-Time Injury (LTI) on a large biotechnology plant in Dublin, Ireland. Mercury has had a presence on the facility since its initial construction in 2000, at the time one of Europe’s largest construction projects. Since the completion of construction, Mercury has remained on site and continued to provide ongoing maintenance and sustaining works, supporting the client’s operations team.

Our team comprises Electrical and Instrumentation staff, ranging between 12 to 30+ depending on what projects are currently ongoing. In addition, Mercury’s teams have provided Fire Alarm, ICT and Fire Protection services on the campus. During this time, Mercury has been involved in a large number of projects along with continuing to provide maintenance and sustaining works services.

Mercury’s TSS team are also currently involved with the client to deliver a lighting upgrade project to LED luminaries as part of the ESB’s Sustainability Programme which we hope will be ultimately rolled out Campus-wide. This is just one example of the project work we carry out on an ongoing basis.

Our primary function on this project is to carry out all sustaining works for the client and our team, with Electrical services led by Martin Mooney and Rory O’Connor, ICT services led by Wes Foran, Frank Dempsey managing Fire Alarm services and Charlie O’Donnell looking after Fire Protection services. Danny Kelly, Operations Manager for TSS, leads many of the operations on this campus. Martin, Frank, Charlie and Danny were all involved in the initial construction phase in the early 2000’s and have remained actively involved to the present day.
