Water safety poses a major challenge in delta areas. We are keen to contribute to the design of future-proof and (data-) intelligent water infrastructure on the basis of sound research. A Digital Twin approach can be helpful in this respect. In this approach, the physical and digital identities are inextricably linked to each other. The goal is to have traceable, future-proof and dependable water infrastructure. Our approach results in improved efficiency and cost reductions, as well as a lower chance of failure in every stage of the life cycle. With specially designed instruments, we can look at what lies ahead together with our client, and provide assistance in designing feasible future-proof water infrastructure.
A changing climate will lead to rising sea levels and rivers will have to accommodate peak discharges more frequently. The Netherlands has directed a great deal of attention to water safety in its history. Developments as consequences of extreme water conditions, have further convinced us that rivers must be given more room. The controlled provision of space for rivers and discharge has become the governing principle. The objective of FLOWDOT is to analyse and visualise regional water systems specifically from a water security perspective. Solutions must contribute to the combined function of the water system: Water Security and Water Safety.
