Digital auction: No 37 The Elms, College Road, Galway.

A three-bed duplex apartment in Galway City is set to go under the virtual hammer in a unique digital auction.

No 37 The Elms on College Road is a three-bed home spread over first and second floors, with a balcony and its own parking space. It extends to around 970 square feet and is being sold with vacant possession.

It is part of a catalogue of 22 properties which are being sold at the moment, with bidding open for 24 hours from next Tuesday morning.

Robert Hoban, Director of Auctions at Allsop Space told Tribune Property: “We are hugely excited to be introducing our online auction to the market with a modern, innovative, transparent and effective method of sale for buyers at home and abroad.

“The sale of property through a fully digital process offers vendors a new choice that also comes with the unique commitment to transparency and effectiveness that buyers expect from us.

“The online auction provides a fully transparent bidding process and a legally binding sale, allowing bidders to secure property from the comfort of their own home.

“In a ground breaking first, the entire property transaction process will be performed digitally, from catalogue to contract. Bidders can purchase property at their convenience and in comfort on their PC, tablet or smartphone.

“The Contracts for Sale will be signed electronically through the use of ISO standard digital signatures provided by Post Trust, a division of An Post.

“The payment management system is handled by GlobalCollect and the entire bidding process will be independently observed by Ernst & Young.

“Another first for property sales in Ireland is the use of digital signatures, which will allow transactions at the Allsop Space online auction to be legally binding, giving certainty to both buyer and seller.

“Following the closing of each lot, a signed Contract for Sale is emailed to the buyer, seller and their solicitors and the balance of 10% deposit (less €5,000) is due within 48 hours,” said Mr Hoban.

Bidding will open at 10am next Tuesday, July 8 and run for 24 hours, closing in 15 minute intervals on Wednesday, during which period all bids will be openly logged and displayed.

Three of Galway’s shining success stories reveal plans to expand in 2021

Senator Aisling Dolan....good news.

Three of Galway’s start-up success stories have all gone into the New Year with expansion plans – creating around ten high-end jobs each in the process.

The continued expansion of these Enterprise Ireland-supported companies – based in the med-tech and new technology sectors – are a ringing endorsement of enterprise in the west, according to Galway Senator Aisling Dolan.

Palliare, a medical device company founded in 2018 as a spinout from Irish gastro-diagnostic company Crospon, has hired ten new employees in recent months.

Flexwork company, Ronspot intends to have a total of ten new employees on board by spring 2021, and has hired five people since September.

Ronspot – based in the GMIT Innovation Hub – is a technology company which enables the flexible workplace between office and home.

And Venari Medical – a spin-out from the BioInnovate Ireland fellowship programme for medical device innovation at NUIG – filled three new positions in October, with plans to recruit up to ten new employees in the coming months.

Senator Dolan described the jobs as a vote of confidence in graduates in the west.

“It shows that the dynamic MedTech research in the west has a strong ecosystem with third level underpinned by Enterprise Ireland and the seed capital investment support from the Western Development Commission,” she said.

“It is wonderful to see Irish innovation rising to the top, competing internationally and winning global export markets. Enterprise Ireland champions Irish based innovative companies and crucially supports early-stage development,” she added.

The ADVANCER, which came to life in Thermo King’s manufacturing site in Galway. The project has today been awarded the title of Engineering Endeavour of 2020.

A project with its genesis in Galway – with the aim of reducing its customers’ carbon footprint by one gigaton by 2030 – has been awarded the prestigious title of Engineering Endeavour of 2020 by Engineers Ireland and ESB.

The ADVANCER project, developed by Galway-based Thermo King and their parent company Trane Technologies, was awarded the prestigious accolade having featured in Engineers Ireland’s Engineering Excellence Digital Series, held in association with ESB, and was chosen by the public and members of Engineers Ireland as the top engineering project of 2020 following an online vote.

Trane Technologies, with global headquarters in Swords, Co. Dublin, is a global leader in efficient and sustainable climate innovation for buildings, homes and transportation, employing close to 1,000 people in Ireland, and 36,000 employees globally.

The ADVANCER project, which includes an innovative trailer refrigeration unit and manufacturing line in Galway, was developed by Thermo King in response to their parent company’s 2030 sustainability aspirations, and the commitment to reduce their customers’ CO2 emissions by one gigaton by 2030 – equivalent to 2% of the world’s annual emissions or, the annual emissions of France, Italy and the UK combined.

Built with ambitious sustainability goals at its core, the ADVANCER trailer refrigeration unit has been developed using all-new Mild Hybrid electrified architecture, creating a new standard for performance, fuel efficiency, temperature control and environmental sustainability for trailer refrigeration units.

The Thermo King team also developed a world class sustainable assembly line in Galway which utilises 100% renewable energy and is now on track to become the first carbon neutral assembly line in the sector.
