Delta technology

Many large cities around the world are situated in delta areas. These delta areas have a strong potential for economic development but also have to deal with specific problems. Rising sea levels, land subsidence, overcrowding, water shortage, heavy pollution are examples of the issues to be faced.

Developments in these delta areas therefore require solutions with a multidisciplinary design and a broad stakeholder approach. Witteveen+Bos leverages the world-acclaimed Dutch knowledge of hydraulic engineering in many countries.

Our job is to ensure safety and problem solving designs in this transitional area that embraces the entire wet and dry infrastructure at the interface of land and water. Our recommendations cover the entire lifecycle. Our works include preparation (feasibility and design), work supervision and maintenance phases. Each contract is special, requires customisation and the correct use of various disciplines and expert innovation.

We are specialised in:

  • Coastal and shore works
  • Flood Protections
  • Ports and waterways
  • Land reclamation
  • Infrastructure
  • Land usage
  • Urban planning
  • Polders
  • Geo-engineering
  • Hydrodynamics and morphology
