VolkerWessels Telecom is ready for the dike of the future. Our DMC system (Dike Monitoring & Conditioning System) monitors the condition of dikes and intervenes as and when necessary.
The Netherlands has 17,000 km of flood defenses to keep the country dry. But our dikes are increasingly under pressure because of climate change. Softening caused by high water or desiccation due to prolonged drought can cause dikes to collapse. As a result, effective dike monitoring is vitally important. Together with water technology company Landustrie, VolkerWessels Telecom developed the DMC system to take on this challenge.
