ESBI Move To Dublin Airport


It has been reported that the ESBI (ESB International), has signed a rental agreement on the old Aer Lingus building in Dublin Airport. The company will be moving from their current location in St Stephen’s Green and will bring their existing staff with them. While there will be no new jobs available in the company, this is still a very positive thing for the locality as it will bring new commerce to the area. ESB International, which is celebrating 40 years in business this year, is a leading global engineering consultancy specialising in the utility sector. The company focuses on the delivery of large scale, capital infrastructure projects for international clients and for its parent company ESB, helping them to optimise their energy related projects and strategies. We contacted Tony Lambert, CEO of Fingal Dublin Chamber who welcomed the news by saying; “ESB International re-locating to the Dublin Airport Campus is great news for the area and is another key indicator of the importance of Dublin Airport to major indigenous and multinational companies who operate globally. Moving over 500 staff to this excellent location will bring other economic benefits to North County Dublin including employment opportunities, more business for support services and increased spend in hotels, restaurants and shops.”
The building is to undergo a radical redevelopment at a cost of over E10 million before the ESBI make their move to the airport. The County Leader contacted Kieran O’Neill, ESB Media Relations Manager about this exciting new prospect; “The move is to facilitate our Dublin based staff of which we have approximately 500. It is expected that we will be moving in late 2016.”
He went on to tell us that they are excited about moving to Dublin Airport as it is a thriving area with plenty of ammenities within close distance to their new premises.
