Coleraine company Rain Harvesting Ireland (RHI) has won business with one of the world's biggest computer companies.
It will provide its rainwater harvesting system as part of the IT giant's expansion of its Cork office.
RHI Managing Director Jonathan Coyle said the deal is a boon for the company.
"This is an immensely significant and encouraging contract for us because it represents a terrific endorsement by one of the world's biggest technology corporations."
"I believe we secured the business because of our passion for delivering bespoke systems to clients based on our experience and expertise in developing cost effective and cutting edge solutions.
The company invested £27,000 into research and development for the company, of which Invest NI offered assistance of over £18,000.
Des Gartland, Invest NI North West Regional Office Manager, said: "We have worked closely with this progressive and ambitious company in the development of its impressive technology particularly in the conservation and recycling of rain water, a rapidly developing market opportunity.
"The company is now marketing its know-how and technology very professionally in export markets and is beginning to see success from its commitment to sales outside Northern Ireland."
The company currently supplies its systems, which help to conserve rainwater and deal with storm water and so-called greywater, to private and public sector clients in Northern Ireland, the Republic and Great Britain.
