Water cycle engineering and consulting services

Harnessing our expertise to preserve, recycle, redistribute and manage the water cycle

Water cycle engineering and consulting services

We offer comprehensive support to organizations across the entire water value chain, from those involved in water resource collection, storage, distribution, and management, to water treatment for industrial, agricultural, and household use. Additionally, we provide expertise in water reuse, promoting a circular economy perspective.

What we offer

- Resilience against climate change impact: we can help water operators analysing the resilience capabilities of water and wastewater networks and to reach positive balance after valorisation.

- Water infrastructures: we are keen to offer our global leadership in water and wastewater networks master planning and engineering, as well as in designing water catchment solutions, such as dams and reservoirs for both energy and irrigation purposes. 

- Sustainability and circularity: our expertise extends to nature-based solutions for water management and biodiversity preservation. Re-use of cleaned from pollutants water using low energy and zero waste technology solutions is promoted for extensive use to generate beneficial impacts at society level.

- Digital services: our smart monitoring solutions utilize a combination of in-situ sensing, satellite technology, and digital twin technologies to increase efficiency in the water and wastewater network management.

Our special services include the development of waterbags designed for transporting large quantities of freshwater over the sea to island/coastal communities, addressing the issue of water scarcity exacerbated by climate changes. Moreover, we excel in monitoring water networks in real-time, enabling the identification of water losses by real time hydraulic balance and the deployment of optimisation measures.
