HIDROMOD is an SME established in 1992 as a high tech consultancy in the field of Computational Modelling of Aquatic Environments. HIDROMOD has participated in about 500 projects connected to hydro-informatics for clients all around the world in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America and has highly skilled professionals, including several with Ph.D. and Ms.C. degrees. In 2002 HIDROMOD implemented a quality management system (QMS) which strategic reflects the policies defined by HIDROMOD’s management board: “the quality of our organization intends to lead to the client’s satisfaction, by producing products and services according the client requirements maintaining a competitive cost. The continuous process improvement, the existence of highly qualified human resources, the innovation and the team work are the foundations of the quality objectives”.
As the foremost Portuguese engineering company specialised in operational numerical modelling HIDROMOD has worked extensively in modelling and ICT technologies both in the framework of R&D and Engineering Projects having the capability to deliver solutions at a global scale and to use these solutions to provide high resolution forecasts nearshore, where the economic activities are most important. In the framework of these projects HIDROMOD carried out studies on wave propagation, sediment transport by combined wave and current action, effluents dispersion, oil slicks transportation, floodplains delimitation, output evaluation of nutrients in watersheds, water quality and urban hydraulics. In order to maintain high standards in the tools and approaches being used, HIDROMOD maintains an almost continuous participation in multiple international R&D projects of which the following are representative examples in the context of IASON: AMOS in EEA grants, ODYSSEA, HISEA, WATERSENSE and UNITED in H2020.
Along the last decade HIDROMOD also developed high skills in delivering operational services supported by IWA awarded AQUASAFE platform capable to provide user fitted information integrating access to different data sources (including earth observation data and (near) real time local data) and high resolution model forecasts. As a result HIDROMOD is presently serving different clients in areas such as ports, aquacultures, water and energy utilities and water managing authorities. HIDROMOD has proven experience in developing and implementing operational systems.
