Dam Safety

Safe Dams for our World

With over 100 years of experience in dam engineering all around the world, we have acquired a strong reputation in all aspects of dam safety.

Dams are particularly challenging structures. The obvious risks are reduced with an appropriate structural design. The remaining risks are managed with adapted surveillance, monitoring programmes and proactive emergency planning.

Our dam safety experts are approved by authorities. Many years of being engaged in specialist engineering and institutional expertise with private and state/federal dam owners has given us the skills required to offer the best possible service.

Our services include:

  • Dam design
  • Recalculation of existing dams
  • Seismic design and safety evaluation
  • Dam safety inspections
  • Flood protection studies
  • Dam monitoring
  • Instrumentation
  • Emergency planning
  • Further studies
  • Capability building and training
  • Dam break hazard analysis
