Flood Forecasting Platform for all Catchments in Ireland
Nelen & Schuurmans, together with Tractebel and IMDC, is configuring a flood forecast platform for the Irish Meteorological Service (Met Éireann). The FEWS system will be hosted in the Microsoft Azure platform, ensuring access from anywhere at any given time. Detailed hydrological models will be set up for all catchments in Ireland. The project has kicked off and will run for the coming years.
“We are proud and confident that we can implement a flood early warning system to better mitigate damage to houses and infrastructure. Met Éireann has made the important choice to go for a cloud-based solution, the system will set a new bar in the industry.” Joep Grispen, Director IT services.
