Many Dutch local authorities, provinces and the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management are working on challenging and complex projects. These are projects in which underground cables and piping are a major factor. On top of that, energy transition is a hot topic. So, how can you ensure that the projects become a sustainable success story?
Expertise is required to obtain a smart underground infrastructure. The Netherlands wants to eliminate the use of gas by 2050, which means that everyone will have to think about the possibilities of reusing of the gas grid. We will also have to look at other ways of cooking and heating. The construction of new grids and the adaptation of existing ones will be needed to achieve this. This means extra underground activity.
Water management in the city and the environment in general is another important topic for government institutions. to counter climate change. Cables and piping are being shifted, while extra drainage possibilities to remove water from the towns and cities are also being considered. And many more interesting developments are under way to boot.
