How we keep our feet dry in the Netherlands!

Flooding poses a significant threat to the Netherlands and Rijkswaterstaat, an agency of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, is constantly monitoring this risk. They have partnered with key players such as Van Oord to ensure we keep our feet dry in this county where a significant part is below sea level.

By deploying the “VO:X Huygens”, one of their USVs build by Demcon Unmanned Systems, they navigated the shallow waters of Noordwaard’s floodplains and streams, mapping their capacity in record time. This project demonstrates that these pioneering USVs are valuable and sustainable tools for crucial water management, ensuring the safety of both people and the environment.
