Delta and River Engineering
Delta and river engineering is highly related to navigational, drought and flooding issues. They are highly related to river discharges, the morpho-dynamics and the extent of the lowlands of deltas. We are well capable to carry out services to the above related matters for government bodies that are looking for flooding as well as waterway transport master planning and private sectors that would like to investigate the efficiency again to set up waterway transport links for their business. Further, detailed plans can be made for locally mitigating the effects of high waters during the wet and storm seasons. CDR provides engineering and design services for terminals, shipyards, naval facilities and (inland) waterway transport. For terminals and shipyards, CDR also offers professional services for site selection studies, quay designs, shipping and nautical studies.
Inland Waterway Transport
Inland waterway transport is an important part for terminals or ports and should not only focus on adapting the waterways, but also on optimizing the means of transport to the natural hydraulic conditions. Accurate survey campaigns and numerical modelling studies will map the current situations with capability to provide for predictions of future extreme conditions, ambient conditions and morphological changes. This includes expected dredging volumes, optimization of transport routes and optionally restricted transportation windows to international standard morphological modelling studies on sand transports, erosion and accretion, with and without protection structures.
Together with our specialist partners, we also provide highest-level transaction advisory services for parties that are interested in concessioning of navigational channel management to port and inland waterway authorities.
