Water resources modelling & analysis

Water systems quickly become complex, whether you're dealing with a city's drainage system, a vast river network, irrigation canals or drainage of a land development project. Using reliable and suitable models is essential to gain insights, improve your strategies and make forecasts. To ensure we always use the best models, we combine traditional modelling approaches and software with in-house developed techniques and tools.

We're continuously developing new modelling techniques, calibration procedures and faster simulation engines. We have unique expertise in developing ultra flexible and fast models. Our own suite of models is particularly suitable for solving optimization problems, strategic planning, scenario investigations and long term simulations.

Our unique modelling approach
results in tailored, ultra fast and more accurate models

We've developed our own way of modelling systems. We take a close look at your integrated system to build smarter models: processes that affect your needs most are modeled in depth, while we simplify the others. This gives you reliable models you that can adjust and use effectively, without the redundant complexity. Hereto, we combine different model types, including detailed hydrodynamic models, parsimonious and conceptual models, and powerful data-driven and machine learning techniques.

Machine learning techniques to turn process data from various sources in powerful predictive models

Urban drainage and flood models using radar data, and capable of simulating a vast range of source control measures 

State-of-the-art hydrological models suitable for spatial scenario analyses

Conceptual reservoir-type models that can emulate complex dynamics of river systems, including floods, regulating structures and tidal effects.
