Our Water Systems Engineering Services

computer modelling

map of urban water reticulation

More Details

Delivery of capital works programs, engineering designs, and operating strategies depend on timely access to up-to-date computer models of:

  • pipelines;
  • process loops; or
  • distribution networks.
hydraulic design

graph of parallel pump curves versus system curves

More Details

Hydraulic design, transient analysis and surge protection design for pressure-pipe systems of all scales:

  • irrigation;
  • mine pit dewatering; or
  • borefields;
  • cooling water; or
  • drinking water distribution.
functional control

More Details

Documenting automatic controls to ensure the system operates as intended when first commissioned by the process control engineers:

  • functional control diagrams; and
  • zone / sub-system control statements.

expansion planning

list of future capital works

More Details

Analysing the ability of current infrastruction capacity to handle increased hydraulic load.

Planning future asset capacity and required commissioning dates.

peer review

pencil ticking a check-list

More Details

Providing highly experienced engineers to review clients' hydraulic and transient (surge protection) designs.

On more complicated projects, the peer reviewer often becomes a mentor / "sounding board" for the client's team.

More Details

Developing seasonal or annual operating strategies to satisfy required service levels / output targets at lowest cost.

Our experience includes:

  • linear pipelines, operating in multiple modes;
  • cities with many diverse water sources and operating modes.


trainer at white-board
