Royal HaskoningDHV Joins The Smart Water Networks Forum For Global Smart Water & Wastewater Exposure

In an effort to promote global sustainable development, Royal HaskoningDHV, a leading, international engineering consultancy and project management firm has announced its plans to join the Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN), the leading global hub for the smart water and wastewater sectors.

Cities worldwide face escalating urban challenges in the wake of rapid urbanisation, aging infrastructure, and a changing climate, with these challenges expected to intensify in the decades to come. Today, city water operators must link with relevant stakeholders and global experts to leverage innovative, digital solutions to build a resilient future.

A global non-profit, SWAN brings together key players in the water sector to optimise the data processing of water and wastewater networks, making them smarter, more efficient and sustainable. Likewise, through Aquasuite, Royal HaskoningDHV takes a real-time holistic approach to water management, by applying Big Data analytics, machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence to fully optimise, integrate and automate the entire man-made water cycle.

“Having recently attended the SWAN 2018 Conference in Barcelona, we recognise the excellent industry collaboration that SWAN fosters. With Aquasuite being at the forefront of the water sector for over 20 years, it is a natural fit for us to join and help accelerate the growth of the smart water sector worldwide”, said Radboud van Kleef, Managing Director Aquasuite at Royal HaskoningDHV.

Commenting on this, Amir Cahn, Executive Director of the SWAN Forum, remarked, “A sustainable water future will rely on data-driven solutions and global organisations such as Royal HaskoningDHV working directly with water operators to streamline their decision-making, performance management and process optimisation. We are honoured to have Royal HaskoningDHV, an innovative leader in the smart water space, join our fast growing community.”
