Dams

Veanco provides consulting services for all kinds of dams, whether they are designed to diverting water for irrigation, or large reservoirs to serve multiple purposes such as meeting drinking water needs, flood control, hydropower generation, fish breeding and recreation activities. 

Reservoirs will have a monetary cost/benefit assessment and environment, social and cultural impact assessment. In many reservoir projects people have to be relocated and rehabilitated, historical artefacts moved or rare environments relocated. Veanco is able to provide the necessary design services for all these challenging tasks.

Dam design itself requires a strong interaction between geotechnical and hydrogeological investigation and interpretation, to build a dam safely, without risking piping and ultimately failure of the entire dam. The highly experienced individuals Veanco is able to source for such tasks allows any kind of dam to be designed safely, in line with the latest codes and safety standards, most notably those of ICOLD.
