The international challenges surrounding water management relate to water for a healthy society, for human beings and for nature. Due to climate change in particular, water safety is under pressure in metropolitan environments, as places in which to live, work and enjoy leisure activities in a healthy manner. As a consequence, in many delta areas, there is a vital need for future-proof dikes and robust storm surge barriers. But we also need resilient cities that can withstand weather extremes, with ever hotter and drier summers, as well as increasingly heavy precipitation. Besides ensuring water safety, we therefore also need to have continued access to sufficient supplies of freshwater of the right quality. This is why a resilient and future-oriented water management must strike an optimal balance between water safety and water security.
In this effort, the development of scenarios, the design of resilient, robust and always traceable water infrastructure are additional key factors. And all of this in the context of an ever-expanding digital world that calls for sharing and combining data in a secure and transparent digital environment. We help our clients to prepare for this future.
Living in a delta
Our mission is to work on sustainable deltas with vital, resilient cities. We focus in particular on the urban delta areas in the world, because that is where we offer added value based on more than 50 years of experience. Local citizens are increasingly confronted with a changing climate, which has serious consequences for the quality of life in their cities. Water expertise is indispensable in order to safeguard the liveability of cities now and in the future. Water issues simply can no longer be neglected. That is why we often take the initiative ourselves whenever we see realistic, sustainable and practically feasible solutions. Always taking the client’s input into account, we work together with them to find the most effective solution. Our knowledge lies primarily in the water-related themes of Water Safety, Water Security and Resilient Cities.
Living in a digital world
We use our Digital Twin approach wherever it is appropriate. The Digital Twin is a future-oriented working approach that supports the creation, management and maintenance of water infrastructure in all phases in an integrated way. In the process, we can also use our digital ARGUS portal to manage and share data in a transparent manner. With our Digital Twin approach, we integrate artificial intelligence and domain models with real-time data to recreate live digital copies of the physical infrastructure. On this basis, our diTAM preventive asset management approach helps to achieve efficient and cost-effective asset management of water infrastructure. By using a Digital Model, Digital Shadow or a full Digital Twin approach, we can intensify the level of automation in a measured way.
