Description of Royal HaskoningDHV’s leading services in the Water Business Line
SMART WATER IN CITIES
Through our digital experience and expertise, we help clients with tailored technological solutions for water and waste water in cities. Our technology is the fruit of a network of experts within our company as well as with partners outside our company who develop, design and implement smart, innovative solutions. Our solutions and software implementations are designed with a deep knowledge of water and the impact of this in urban areas. We work closely with operators in their decision making, performance management improvement and process optimisation.
FLOOD RESILIENCE IN URBAN AREAS
Climate change and floods pose a threat to human life, critical infrastructure and economic operations, especially in complex, high-density, urban environments. Our flood resilient solutions cover the whole spectrum from adaptation to prevention: from early warning systems using smart, interactive tools and analyses, to flood protection schemes to protect valuable assets. From assessment through to solution, we draw on a network of deep ‘smarts’ specialised in an understanding of the physics, social environment and stakeholders involved, translating this into the real world with an eye on commercial and economic growth.
