Arcadis and InTech Join Forces

Dutch-based Arcadis and InTech Dike Security Systems are joining forces in monitoring levees and dams, by forming a new company called Dike Monitoring Netherlands.

The new company will roll-out a monitoring system that is based on innovative technologies that have been developed in the Netherlands to detect deformation and internal erosion at an early stage.

It will support and advise levee and dam owners on the behavior of their flood defenses under different circumstances.

Early detection of small deformations, seepage or piping of levees and dams, enables the owners to take action and prevent a possible breach.

For this, the company will use new monitoring techniques that are used by Intech Dike Security Systems, such as infrared sensors, deformation measurements based on satellite imagery, multispectral measurements, radar, EM measurements, stereo photography, 3D laser scanning and in-situ measurements.

The data generated by these techniques is combined with data provided by existing techniques and transformed to useful information.

This way Dike Monitoring Netherlands will enable levee and dam owners to address possible problems in an very early stage.
