Drinking water

Meeting the needs of the booming world population

By 2025, two thirds of the world population could be affected by water scarcity. Ensuring safe, reliable and sustainable water provision is crucial to human welfare. Yet it faces multiple challenges, especially in urban areas. Specialised tools and expertise are required to establish reliable drinking water systems, develop safe and energy-efficient operating conditions and maintain water quality up to standards. We can help.


  • Providing enough water for everyone
  • Maintaining safe and secure water supply
  • Ensuring energy-efficient and reliable water distribution
  • Making sustainable use of water resources
  • Reducing water losses and Non-Revenue Water (NRW)


We have all the requisite tools to ensure safe, reliable and sustainable supply and distribution of drinking water. Our wide range of services include hydraulic simulation and analyses, site-specific measurements, telemetry data and output from numerical models. We also have vast experience in helping our clients implement these tools and address their specific challenges wherever they are located across the world. This makes us your ideal partner for water supply, water distribution and related services.
