The European Spallation Source Neutrino Super Beam (ESSnuSB) project aims at a discovery of leptonic CP violation with a precise measurement of the CP phase angle. ESSnuSB is characterized by an intense neutrino beam to be produced at the ESS by a 5-MW proton beam, and the placement of the far detector at the second oscillation maximum.
Preliminary performance assessments of different near-detector designs and of the far water Cherenkov detector, based on Geant4 simulations and a previously developed Cherenkov ring reconstruction algorithm, will be presented. Possible detector media and geometries will be discussed in the context of particle identification and energy reconstruction.
